  1. Fret board from Politis’ bouzouki isn’t original.
    It has replaced and has changed inlays’ places.

    • The instrument had changed several hands before reaching Mr. Politis. I was the owner prior to Mr Politis and when I purchased the instrument, THERE WAS NO FRETBOARD. Obviously in order it to be playable and of some marketing value I had a fretboard put on. The inlays’ places were changed in order for the purchaser (whoever that would have been) to be able to play it. Unfortunately, not many people will go through the trouble of learning a “new” fretboard.
