You didn`t have to open a new topic for this one. I think there are few threads like "The ugliest/worst instrument/thing you`ve ever seen/played". When I was school boy we used to make small houses for the birds, that we`ve hung on the threes. This thing looks almost the same.

He uses the old bait and switch on his titles ANTIQUE DUCK DECOY DECOYS UNLIMITED SIGNED (http://cgi.ebay.com/ANTIQUE-DUCK-DECOY-DECOYS-UNLIMITED-SIGNED_W0QQitemZ7188138208) . Like putting "not a Gibson" in the title. And why not ship to Portugal? Why exclude any one in the world from bidding on that c**p?

Oops, seems it is made by a company called decoys unlimited. But it looks like he is fishing for ducks unlimited collectors

Be cautious, Petimar. The ad says, "Some nails may have been replaced." That means it may not be entirely original.

"Style: naive."

Interesting.

Truth in advertising?

Forget "Old-Time", I'm gonna take up "Primitive" style mandolin. Any good "primitive" instructors out there?

Lucky- My instructor has a collegue named Cro Mando who can teach primative triatonic scales and old stick and stone tunes. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif
