That's really nice John. I bet it sings sweetly.

It looks cool, John, and I bet I could get plenty of tunes out of the little critter.

Dang John, that's just cuter than a bug's ear!  And I love the built-in tuning key storage.

Here is the outworking of some brainstorming I've had recently.  You know how an idea gets in your head and won't go away peacefully? Well, this lil' guy is less than 12" long, but can be played-- SORT OF.  It's my version of a true "pocket dulcimer".  Just thought you might like to see it!
