I think Nicholas Ioannou is of Greek origin.
There was an article on interview of him by Greek music magazine TAR.
See article:
http://www.tar.gr/content/content.php?id=164
It was in Greek, but there was an English translation option.
The translation was a bit wonky, but you will get the idea.

I think Richard Savage of Savage Classical Guitar has one of Nicholas' guitar for sales.
Perhaps it is still available.
You can do a search on any search engine.

Hi.

I met Nicholas many years ago (1993?) when I was in college, and when I bought my guitar from him. My teacher, Terry Champlin, brought me to Nicholas' house for a long and fascinating afternoon that stretched into evening and dinner. I'd already heard almost an infinite amount of stories about Nicholas from Terry - they were very good friends - and I just sat there with my ears wide open. Nicholas is Greek, and one of the most interesting people I've ever met. He's the luthier they called in to work on Segovia's guitars when those guitars came to America. He's a polymath and he makes damn good coffee.
