Below is an excerpt from Fivos Anogeianakis' (Anoyanakis) seminal work, Greek Popular Music Instruments describing the construction of the laouto (laghouto in his text, attempting to better translate the letter γ). The depth of detail of this section in comparison to the other instrument families (with the exception of tsambouna, perhaps) is interesting to note. Furthermore, I am interested in this largely historical depiction of laouto construction for its parallels (and differences) to modern (and historically-informed methods) of Renaissance lute construction. I am posting this as a resource to laouto players and lutenists alike (and luthiers, of course - although I don't know how many of those check out my website), particularly as they tend to be most interested in the construction of and ultimately the playability of their instruments. Furthermore, this resource is expensive and hard to find outside of Greece, and I will be responding to it in its entirety over the coming months as part of my own research.
