The beauty of the Sicilian mandolino-bouzouko

And the tortoise pick guard from an old unplayable mandolin !

The luthier, Giannis Tsoulogiannis, sent me today a photo from the unique mandolino-bouzouko project after restoring the outer binding, and adding the missing natural sea-shell pieces.

The beauty of this exceptional mandolin starts to finally be revealed!


Giannis also found a very old unplayable mandolin, and extracted its tortoise pick-guard which he will use to match exactly the color and quality of the missing tortoise material used around the unique sound-hole of the Sicilian mandolino-bouzouko.

Stay tuned!
