Zozef bouzouki Re-Birth

The theory into practice!

As I have mentioned on an earlier post, the talented luthier Giannis Tsoulogiannis (http://www.hijaz.gr/en/) expeditiously has just started the construction of a three course bouzouki instrument, inspired by the 1950's Zozef Terzivassian's beautiful bouzoukia
This musical instrument will carry one of a kind personal design of  the pick-guard and soundboard decoration, which follows the laws of the Golden Ratio logarithm.

For this unique attempt, the luthier  has constructed a new custom mold with specific dimensions and curvature
The bowl has been made by old Greek walnut wood carrying beautiful grain(running parallel to the staves) and an amazing amber-brown color

With similarities on  the way that Zozef Terzivassian used to decorate his bouzouki instruments, this three course bouzouki under construction, will prove in a way, if the use of the Golden Ratio in bouzouki construction,  can generate a very appealing musical instrument with an incredible sound, similar to the inexplicable attraction Zozef's  bouzoukia are drifting us for years

Stay tuned,  as the first bouzouki following the Golden Ratio logarithm, starts to be materialized!
