Paul Doyle bouzouki Paul Doyle mandolin
Paul Doyle
The grandson of a violin builder, Paul lives in Galway and builds mandolins, bouzoukis, octave mandolins, and mandocellos, in both acoustic and electric versions—in addition to harps and guitars. U2's Adam Clayton is among the many illustrious musicians who endorse Paul's instruments. Above are a solidbody bouzouki and an acoustic/electric mandolin, and two more solidbody mandolins appear below.
     This Web page features some of Paul's acoustic axes, and there are more photos at Paul's own Web site. I've visited Paul in Galway twice, and can attest that his instruments are a joy to play. You can reach Paul by e-mail, or contact:
