    Default Random Hippy Painting?

    I found this description amusing while perusing Ebay's mandolins:
    INCREDIBLE HANDCRAFTED & DECORATED HIPPY 1960s MANDOLIN - Item number: 320316590333
    Not "random hippy sanding" but "hippy painting!"

    Its so ugly I want it! Wonder if it had hemp strings?

    seriously it looks like little kid painted it, but I still want it.


    thanks for sharing.

    after look at the other pictures I take back my comment about the paint job, it actually does not look bad.

    As a mandolin, it's not worth much. As a work of art?

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I just found this painting on a guitar in my house.
    Personally I don’t like it. It makes the guitar look cheap.

    I’m thinking maybe I need to lock up my other instruments when there’s a full moon.

    Maybe just hide the paints?
