    Okayyyy....
    So many questions...
    Why would anyone do that?
    Why would anyone buy that?
    How does it sound?
    Do you think the plastic can handle the string tension?

    I doubt that the plastic is taking any load. Think cigar box guitar, ie the neck takes the load but you can’t see it for the box.

    Note that it's shipped from "Scrap Metal Studios."
    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."
