    Default Ebay mandolin, slice of swiss anyone?

    I know there has been a thread of unusual shaped mandolins in the past. I guess this one belongs in that gallery:

    Looks interesting - someone is very creative. I wonder how it plays?

    It has nothing on the Bill Bussmann's Old Wave cheese mandolin

    I recall seeing the nautilus ones a while back. Would love to see one in person.
