I like it! It sort of looks like an F-5 as painted by Picasso! Who is the builder?

Wow. I couldn't make sense of the proportions until I read the description. Now I see why it doesn't have more frets...

I just saw the exhibit in Philly, so I'm sure it's a Dali http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Yeah!! - definitely looks like his style - notice the "contour" of the body - or is it "contortions"! - a good solid instrument to have.... when the fight starts ; them sharp "points" could inflict serious damage!##. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mandosmiley.gif http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif

It's a short-scale piccolo electric, designed to be tuned EAEA (Also the sound I emitted when I first saw it). Built by Ken Shalliker in the UK.

I think you can also use it in the kitchen to pull out hot oven racks...

I can only imagine that EAEA is also the sound that I'd emit upon first hearing it. Piccolo electric? That's pretty brave, especially with a single coil pu! What the scale length?
