    Default Ebay Luthier Project

    At first glance, this project looked interesting until I realized the body was not a 2-point like the top but rather a banjo body.

    It's a bargain, actually. It's not a luthier project. It's TWO luthier projects!

    Maybe it's not quite junk - more like spare parts.
