I recently purchased a bouzouki from George and it sounds great. I own two other bouzoukis that don't come close in sound quality. After wandering into George's shop, I looked over his instruments, and a few months later asked him to make an instrument for me. I was never pressured to buy anything. George made the bouzouki in the time that he had stated. He and his staff are always friendly and helpful. Since that time I've moved to a very humid climate and George has made small adjustments to the bridge free of charge. The bouzouki continues to sound great and my neighbors are pleased. Also George (and his staff) and I have become friends. I try to go to Athens often and we meet and talk about music. I have no problem recommending George's craftmanship and business practices. He's first rate, and as I said, a friend.
