Re: Morgan Monroe Bouzouki/OM (?) on Craigslist
I agree with Steve - check it out, but be careful. You might get a great deal, or you might get something with more problems than you'll want to pay to fix.
Also - if you want to play stuff like the Smoothie Song (which I love, btw, and actually have the opening set as my cell phone ringtone) - I hope you have LONG fingers. B/c the zouk scale is long, and that kind of melodic playing will take a lot of reach. If your hands are not big, or you don't have long reach, you may want to wait for something with a shorter scale.

If you're gonna walk on thin ice, you might as well dance!
