    Default Johnny Pineapple

    Does anyone have a clue what Johnny's holding? I mean who the maker might be. I assume its just a twelve string guitar.

    Long day here too. I think my eyes are also angry.

    You're right 14 strings. I thought at first that there were more that 12 tuners, but then looked at the tailpiece which, if my angry eyes are correct is meant for 12 strings.

    Looks like six courses?

    The Philippine version of the bandurria has 14 strings. Is there such a thing as an "octave bandurria?"

    I was wondering about that. Not big enough for a contra bandurria is it?

    There is a Johnny Pineapple (and his Waikiki Wildcats) still performing. Doubtful, but possible that Johnny on the cover of the Hawaiian Holiday LP is the same one still performing with the Wildcats. I sent an email and hope to hear from him soon.

    It’s “poi drivers”! Those are rum and pineapple juice! They used to make me feel younger anyway, partially embalmed more likely.
