Out of the mold

Into my heart!

Today, the luthier sent me 4 more photos, after finishing the instrument's bowl.
I am looking forward to the next weeks, when the bowl it will be cleaned, sanded and scrapped, so the beautiful black lines of grain, running through the amber-color old mulberry staves, will become more profound.
This specific characteristic of the mulberry woods is what made me decide to use it, in the creation of my pre-war bouzouki.

The luthier and I, these days,we are discussing the option to change the original order design, regarding the fillets around the capping strip (kollantza), from wooden marquetry to a tortoise shell strip.
