Well, it's finally come to this! I've got to dispose(I find it hard to even type that word)of my revered old bouzouki. It served me well through many a hundred gigs. It's totally shagged out, not even pretty any more, can't even show it offt on the wall. But I loved the old bugger to bits. I didn't even pay for it. Got it as a present from a fan who brought it back from Greece. I can't tell you how sad this makes me. I think I'll have to throw it out with the trash. Really it ought to have a requiem mass said for it. I NEVER chuck instruments out, but it's got to go. GOODBYE OLD THING!!!

The neck of my bouzouki folded up more than 20 years ago, but I still have the body hanging on the wall. In spite of being cheap crap (made in Greece with dubious wood) it sounded quite nice. One day I'll make it a new neck; or, if I don't get round to it, it'll stay on the wall and puzzle visitors. Don't discard your old friend!

Soooo Sorry, mandomad. Perhaps it will serve someone well in it's afterlife.

C'mon now, mandomad -- it can't be that hard to look at . . . maybe you can still put it on the wall -- covering up the really bad spots with some fake ivy or something -- don't say requiat in pace to your ol' friend just yet, please.

Ouch! A decent burial or funeral pyre at least, eh? Something less ignoble than the trash heap? Though, I vote for doing something else with it altogether, as well, wall-hanging, take it apart and use the bits for something creative?

Cremate it and save the ashes. Buy something suitable for a bouzouki funerary urn from a local potter. (I've made 'em for cats so why not a zouk?) Heaven knows we potters need the money.

Well, I couldn't do it!!! It is still among the rest of the clutter at the cellar head.   I know it's gotta go, I just can't get up the courage to chuck it. Incidentally, the walls and shelves are full to bursting with other (much prettier) instruments.
