These instruments have been taking up space in my shop for some time – some for years and they yearn to be in a new home. Some have cracks, some have indented soundboards, some have bowed body lengths and some have slanted hitch or tuning pins. The flaw is more obvious on some more than others, but every instrument tunes, plays and in every other way is just fine, except for the flaw. The price has been reduced on each instrument to reflect the degree of problem. However, each instrument still includes all the items listed on the main page of instruments ( instruction book, bow, case, etc.). Have fun browsing through this page and who knows, you might fall in love with one of the wayward children and adopt one. Because these children want and need a permanent home, all adoptions are final.
