    I was tempted to get one about 2 months ago - they are cheap, that's for sure. I have seen them go for cheaper actually. However, as mentioned already, the string spacing is so narrow. I would be interested in how it plays. I assume the low string is an F# and the high one a C.

    It really shouldn't be that hard to play guys,
    even with that tight of a spacing,

    I've seen people pluck on violins with no problem at all.

    Violin strings arent like - - - - theyre like _ - - _ which makes it easier to bow (itd be a b*tch to bow strings like - - - -) and would make it easier to pluck.
