Finished the bouzouki. Has a nice sound. I have to do some fine tuning in the set up. It's actually quite loud. I have to learn to play a little something and then I'll post a clip.

Details:
Walnut back and sides
Figured redwood top
Mahogany/walnut/maple neck
Walnut head plate
Mango rosette
Ebony fretboard
Maple bindings
Walnut/maple/Rosewood bridge
Tru Oil finish

Very very nice. I like the way colors and textures move from the top to the back. Excellent craftsmanship as well.

Looks great!

When you get around to your next string change, you might want to change the lower strings to "octave" rather than "unison" tuning, sorta like the lower strings of a 12-string guitar. I gave that a go with a mandola I made, and I liked it so much that I haven't switched back.

Wow! That is incredible. The shamrock sound hole is amazing.
