ZOZEF bouzouki rebirth -Part II

The theory into practice-Part II !

The unique bouzouki instrument made by the hands of the talented luthier Giannis Tsoulogiannis has been finally completed!

A journey to the unknown, inspired by a personal research (which started almost a year ago), has been proven to be an eye opener regarding the inexplicable attraction 1950s era  bouzoukia are drifting us for years
The luthier sent me a final set of photographs taken by the professional photographer  Παναγιώτης Ηλιόπουλος.
The unique flower decoration , the shape of sound-hole, the shape of pick guard, and the decoration of head-stock inspired by the 1950s era , follows the Golden Ratio Algorithm.
Some construction elements also follow the Golden Ratio Algorithm, as the volume , the shape and position of the sound-hole, position of tailpiece and bridge in regards to the scale and the length of the bowl, connection of bowl the to the neck, end of the neck to the sound-hole etch.    

Stay tuned for a soon to come sound sample!
