    Re: New to the electric world...

    Bought used off Reverb - it doesn't seem to be an Eastwood at all; not sure what the pups are, but for sure not the standard fare found on these types. What really sold me was the finish - that...

    Apollonio Bell 'zouk

    Hello all,
    Been awhile since I've posted here, but you know, sometimes life gets in the way of other things. I gave up my aspirations of being a luthier after having my landlord bust me trying to...

    Re: Bouzouki purchase advice.

    I'd steer you to Nikos Apollonio. He's been building and playing since the late '60's and his pricing for a new instrument is very competitive. I've got a bell bodied 'zouk (the left side instrument)...

    Re: An open letter to Classifieds users

    I felt guilty. I only was trying to sell my banjo so I could try to climb out of the fiscal hole I'm in. I did just now, after reading this, donate $20. I wish I could afford more for the ad I...

    Re: Sobell Bouzouki-Worth it??

  14. Re: Rim/top joints on induced archtop instrument

    This is a body closer to guitar sized, 18" long about 14" wide at the lower bout. Likely a light arch, say a 15' - 20' radius.



    Thanks for the input Jim - since I'm not using HHG for this (I...
  15. Rim/top joints on induced archtop instrument
