The Politiko bowl

And the odd placing of fillets!

Tasos Theodorakis sent me today the long anticipated photos, of the Politiko bouzouki process, and its unique bowl.

Its long, tear-shape design, the beautiful old Greek mulberry woods, and the detailed work by the luthier, created a beautiful visual outcome.

After a long discussion with Tasos, we decided to separate the staves in an odd way (fillets every 1 stave , every 2 staves, every 1 stave etch), creating the illusion of 13 and not 19 staves which really the Politiko bowl is carrying

Our attempt was, to create a bowl very close to the old "tampouroeidi" design, frequently been used at the first hybrid bouzouki constructions.
