    Oddball harpish mandolin. I assume that the "arm" is both hollow and open to the rest of the body.

    And you can use it to hang stockings off the mantle during the holidays.

    Whatever it is, it's a goodun fur shur. Only improvement I could think of would be a nice big squid inlay across the front.

    If there was is a second one available it would make for a very musical game of Corn-Hole... One could use D'Addario humidification packs instead of bean bags as projectiles.

    I'm surprised it doesn't have the obligatory "Crack has been expertly repaired and cleated. Has been completely stable for many years."
