    Default Guitar Pretends To Be A Mandolin! "The Camp."

    Well not really. It is the Lyon & Healy Camp! Perhaps, not the most desirable guitar from the firm Possibly, the moulds for the tenor guitar were used for the body.

    Here is one from Jake Wildwood's site:

    I believe that type of tailpiece was imported from Germany.

    The one on Jake's site looks awesome. I'd like to have one, but not such a project as the one on the 'bay.

    It probably will not go for much. I think that tailpiece can be bought as a repro now for not too much, as well. When I see the word "Camp" I am reminded of this song:

    Interestingly, I can remember seeing him do this on TV- over here in England. My parents cracked up watching him. We sent you Freddie & the Dreamers and we got Alan in exchange. He was talented, for sure but came to a sad end.
