Light/Dark tiled Irish bouzouki

Light/Dark tiled Irish bouzouki

This Irish bouzouki was made based a binding and rosette theme I had used on a parlor guitar, with an interplay of dark and light forming a ribbon pattern.  Each tile of the binding and rosette were individually cut and glued into position.  Owned by Kathi O’Leary, this bouzouki has a Western red cedar top, birch sides and back, mahogany neck, and ebony/maple tiles for the binding and rosette.
