Karabas, 1918

1918 Karabas, New York

Giannis Tsoulogiannis sent me this picture with the following info:

Karabas was a Spartan luthier in New York from 1895-?. This instrument dates from 1918 and has a scale length of 715 mm. It has all original parts and is influenced by the “tampoura” as opposed to the mandola. It was Karabas’ least expensive model.

P1020080

Hopefully Mr. Tsoulogiannis will be able to provide us with more pics and measurements at some point.
