Adonis is building another for Australia in August. The next guitar is an Oval hole due for deliver in October. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information or to put a guitar ON HOLD. All guitars have a 48 hour approval period (see returns policy).
Here is Adonis Goulielmos building the actual guitar sent to Australia!!
ADONIS GOULIELMOS D670 I am so excited to be collaborating with the wonderful Greek luthier Adonis Goulielmos. Australia NEEDS to play his guitars! Adonis is a gigging player himself and his guitars offer some really interesting design features never before seen in Australia.
The Goulielmos D670 is Selma copy with a D hole built with a SOLID BODY! The sides of the guitar use a twin wood method called the Ramirez technique used by Jose Ramirez in the classical guitars he made for Andres Segovia. The stiffness of this technique projects more response and volume to the soundboard.
Adonis has built this D670 with a solid Canadian Spruce soundboard and solid Mahogany back and (twin sides). These tonal woods need no introduction for their quality.
The D670 is also built with a small side sound hole for the players benefit.
ALL FOR A FANTASTIC PRICE!
I was so excited to be holding the first Goulielmos to ever arrive in Australia! Here I am describing the unique design features...

ADONIS GOULIELMOS GUITARS
Renowned Greek luthier Adonis Goulielmos has been training and making musical instruments since 2002. To this day he is an active guitarist with the Gypsy Jazz band “Swingshoes”.
In 2008 Adonis opened his own workshop in Athens. I love that on his website he calls it a laboratory; but that is how he works. He has specialised in restoring and building both Mediterranean guitars (Remptiki and parlour) and Gypsy Jazz guitars. Over the years Adonis has restored original Selma Macaferri and Favino guitars, examining their construction and finishings.
After years of experimenting in his “laboratory” Adonis is proudly making the guitars that he loves to play! His focus is on projection and tone incorporating unique design elements including solid wood construction, solid twin wood sides (using the Ramirez technique) and solid Spruce soundboards (like the original Selma’s).
Adonis Goulielmos offers a unique range of guitars with features never seen before in Australia!
