I found this gem in my local shop the other day. I was asking the luthier some questions about a guitar they had for sale and i saw this thing hanging in his shop. It had no strings or nut or bridge and was all decroded. I asked him about it and he said he would have it back together soon and he showed me that he had all the pieces. It was so cool that i bought it on the spot. I knew it would be great and it is.
