Mandolins and bouzoukis handmade by luthier Paul Shippey in Somerest, England.
I'm extremely pleased with this bouzouki, Paul has constructed a thing of beauty. And to top it off it's called the 'Axe'…....Genius."Benji Kirkpatrick (Bellowhead, Faustus)
Besides playability and great tone, one of the main reason's why I love my Shippey 10-String is reliability.Ewan Macpherson (Shooglenifty, Salt House)
I was looking for an instrument that would give enough volume for playing acoustic sessions as well as a round mids, a warm bass and delicate high tones suitable for recordings. The instrument Paul built for me fulfilled all those wishes and gave me much more than that... Peter Jan Daems (MANdolinMAN)
