Jeffrey Jones Guitars Syrena

The mythology and folklore of a wide array of cultures includes some form of aquatic, chimeric creature that is part human, the human portion usually that of a female. Similar to the siren in mythology, mermaids are often portrayed singing their lovely and sometimes deadly songs, enchanting men to their deaths upon the seas. The mermaid has become so interchangeable with the siren in a variety of cultures that the name for mermaid in many languages is a derivation of the word "sirena" or "syrena," as in the French, Spanish, Italian, and Polish languages.

The legendary mermaid seemed the perfect motif for one of my carved instruments, allowing me to combine the fantastic with the female form. I've been planning this guitar for quite some time, having created the original concept drawing you see further down this page over a year ago. I wanted to develop a mermaid character that I could take a few creative liberties with - such as the tail - rather than just portray the typical mer-creature's tail. I wanted an image I could coax into an involved and complex rhythmic form, in a fashion not dissimilar to the way I approached her hair. I wanted to be able to feel the tail whipping through the water.
