The concert was played on a Thomas Humphrey guitar upgraded by Yorgos Kertsopoulos with the Kertsopoulos support-amplifier "superior".

FYI: You have FIVE threads going in "Members' Announcements" for essentially the same purpose - promoting your efforts (4 overt and 1 in content if not title). From that sub-forum rules:

Thank you guitarrista for your kind comment. Since you took the time to post the same comment on each of the five threads, I am answering you in each thread also. You are saying in your kind comment, that my posting is breaking the rules of the forum. In each of the five threads (in my opinion) the subject is absolutely of unique interest to the guitarist who will visit the thread. Interest? How can we verify that there is any interest? The number of the views and the comments of the participants is a safe guide for one to verify if there is a unique interest in each thread. Also, in what period span these views and comments happened. Let’s see below the beginning dates of the threads and the total views, as of today, the 21 Sep. 2017:
Antonio de Torres film campaign needs our support Sunday 18 June 2017 - 620 views

Guitars upgraded acoustically by re-construction to "Kertsopoulos Aesthetics"
Saturday 10 December 2016 - 5042 views
The views, one can verify, are satisfactory and the comments also interesting, which prove the response of the participant guitarists to be positive. Of course, there are exceptions, like yourself, where you do not like what is happening, fully respectable and understandable by me. However, I can assure you that I had no intention to break the rules of our hospitable forum as you are kindly accusing me of doing. Secondly, you are implying with your kind comment that the administration of the forum (which I fully respect in all cases), icluding all the administrators have not done correctly their job to really stop Kertsopoulos (me in this case) from breaking the rules of the forum. All these months, that the threads have been posted, with all the many views and comments, listed, you are saying that the administrators should have stopped Kertsopoulos from breaking the rules and they did not. Why didn’t you make a report to the administrators about your objection? You can be sure, however, that the administrators (it is my belief) know very well their job and they did not miss something. If though today, the administrators decide to close down all my threads because of your kind objection, I will be more than happy to close down all my threads, because the last thing I want is to break the rules of this very hospitable and kind forum. I wish you the best, in your progress, Yorgos

You don't have to over-react; I wish you no ill will, just pointing out what the sub-forum rule is. Normally I would not have even noticed this, but as up to five threads show up in "New posts" almost daily for weeks, I did.

There is no need to explain or argue why you think you are allowed five threads when the rule says one thread per person.

As for administrators, part of the good will and respect toward the forum, for me, is to get to the point where almost no administrative enforcing is needed because rules are respected in the first place. Cheers.

If I had over-reacted I would have answered you in an over-reacted manner, which one can confirm that this did not happen, contrary to that, my answer was polite and did not insult you in any way (contrary to your accusation, which is by itself an over-reaction indeed). I respected your opinion, so please do not say that I over-reacted, do not try to build your arguments on events that did not occur, my initial text as an answer to you is there for anyone to read and over-reaction (as you write) did not occur.

As I already wrote in my first answer to you, if the administrators of the forum decided to let me post different unique threads for the correct informational procedure towards the participants of the forum, all these months, then there is no rule broken, since, every rule has its exceptions.

Some of the criteria that often are used in forum needs, are:
a) how much does a topic/thread contribute to the wellbeing of the participants;
b) does a specific thread provide new information useful to the participants never found in other texts;
c) does the thread improve the constructional understanding of 1) the guitar making 2) of the string making 3) of the different tunings that can be used today to revive historical tunings; etc.

All the threads that I have posted meet all the above criteria and they do not just advertise my work. All the threads meet the criteria to serve the wellbeing of the luthier, the guitarist and also provide new information not found in any other bibliographical text. The kind contribution of the participants in each thread with the high total views and their useful comments is a live proof of the success of each of these threads. Yes, they are an exception of the rule but with a skepticism that promotes the knowledge and the interest of the community.

If you cannot accept these threads as an exception to the rule, I strongly recommend to you to make a report to the administrators explaining your position and ask them to delete all these posts. As I wrote to you already, I will be more than happy if the administrators deleted all the posts if they found it necessary. I have respected the rules guitarrista but every rule has exceptions and my work is providing the exception to the rule, ask anybody that knows about guitar making, string making and guitar playing. So, please, don’t write again that I don’t play by the rules without first thinking that every rule has exceptions. Elementary Watson! Cheers to you too, Yorgos

18 string-triple course guitar upgrade.The triple course guitar flourished in Italy for over 350 years as "guitarra battente" being most popular among the sailors (who had a lot of time for practicing and playing the guitar in their voyage at sea). This upgrade is done on a finished six single strings guitar, that is upgraded to a "Kertsopoulos Aesthetics" triple course guitar. Photos included in the video as well as the guitar's performance, specific tuning in octaves of each of the triple courses and finally: testing of each and all of the open strings.

The "Cuban Dance" is arranged and interpreted by Yorgos Kertsopoulos on an 18 string-triple course guitar acoustically upgraded by him to "Kertsopoulos Aesthetics", as it was originally a six-single string guitar. The triple courses are tuned with octave differences and the exact tuning is shown in notation at the end of the interpretation. Audio is left exactly the way it was recorded by the ZOOM Q3HD, no filters, reverb, or any other effects, whatsoever, have been added to it.
