A picture of my main instrument. It was made for me by a Dutch violin maker, Hans de Louter, who up to now was known best for his copies of Selmer/Maccaferri gypsy-jazz guitars (and for his violins/violas, of course).
There are also pictures available of his latest bouzouki and of his prototype for this design, which he plays regularly himself.
My second De Louter instrument. It has a carved spruce top, but a flat back. Back, sides and neck are maple. It has a shorter scale than the older (above) one, and is overall a lot fancier.
A 10-string bouzouki made by Dan Dubovski, Australia, 2001.
