Greek Laouto made in Sparta, 1930s

Greek Laouto made in Sparta, 1930s

Popular during the 19th and into the mid-20th century, the Greek Laouto or lute contributed to the evolution of the now popular Greek Bouzouki. Though similar in many ways to the German lute guitar, the Greek instrument is strung with double gut or nylon strings in a variety of tunings similar to Bouzouki tunings. The role of the Laouto was usually as a backup instrument to a violin of bouzouki. The frets are tied on as on a Renaissance Lute. The tops were generally spruce and the back are bowl-back construction consisting of 20 or more ribs similar to a Renaissance lute

SOLD!  Breedlove Quartz A-Style Mandolin Sunburst, 2002

Here we have a Breedlove Quartz A-Style mandolin dating to 2002 and built at the Breedlove shop in Bend, Oregon. The A-Style body design is sometimes referred to as a ‘teardrop’, and dates to the late 1890’s and was one of the radical innovations made by Orville Gibson, bringing violin-family construction techniques into the mandolin and guitar world. This instrument uses a solid, carved spruce top and maple back and sides. It’s in overall quite good condition for its age, with minor fret and finish wear. A Fishman bridge pickup has been installed with and endpin jack.
