In early 2010 I was offered the opportunity to make two instruments to represent Greek Musical Instruments for the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, Arizona. The MIM is the only Musical Instrument Museum in the world and has Musical Instruments on display from every country and recently opened in April 2010.  It is a great pleasure to now have two of my instruments on permanent display which are now part of the permanent collection of the Museum. The 8 string Bouzouki features a natural walnut bowl decorated with celluloid and abalone highlights, abalone and mother of pearl inlays on the soundboard and headstock and a traditional double vine style inlay on the ebony fretboard.  The soundboard edge is finished with abalone and traditional pearloid binding.  The Tsoura also has a natural walnut bowl and abalone inlays on the fretboard, soundboard and headstock. The soundboard binding is finished with a traditional celluloid binding which has been used on Greek instruments for many years.  Click on the photos to see more images of these instruments.
