    Default Mystery Electric

    I have a friend who sent me these pix to see if I knew what it is. Looks home made to me but pretty well made. Any idea's?

    While I agree about being well made, it does lack some professional manufacturing qualities about it. Home made but interesting none the less.

    It reminds me of a UK maker, Chris Eccleshaw from Stoke, in shape and plck up. I played one once in a shop in Galway. However, it only reminds me of it and the initial is wrong obviously.

    Did wonder about that. Did you realise he died in August?

    Definitely home made. Perhaps Martin Stillion might have an idea.
