    Fairly common, they pop up all the time. Here's one old thread.

    Kind of look a little like the left side of a Kay held against a mirror.

    Looks like it could be a lot of fun for $100.

    It's neat!

    My what a rabbit hole following Mike's link and finding more in the threads. I don't recall seeing Jake Wildwood posting since I've been on here, but his website is interesting.
    Technique, theory and fun, fun, fun. I love playing, studying and sharing MUSIC.

    Might be worth a hundred bucks, but the picture from the back showing strings reveals what could be really high action. I doubt this would be worth a hundred bucks and a neck reset, but that's just me.
