1925 Abdo Nahat is owned by classical guitar maker Michael
Cone, and was restored by him in 2006.
collaboration with Mr. Cone, I excecuted the cutting of the main rose (Mr. Cone
supplied me with the blank of a muliti-layer walnut lamination reinforced with
carbon fiber) and the two smaller roses, fabricated and cut by me of white bone.
Calligraphic inlay is the original work of Mr. Abdo Nahat. I also supplied Mr.
Cone with shaped bone pegs, ready for installation.
This oud is strung with copper-wound nylon multifilament and varnished gut plain strings.
Roses work of Khalaf Oud Luthiery (calligraphy original work of Abdo Nahat)
