Sorry, this item sold. Have ArCaneLutherie make something just for you, or try these other items:
They are solid wood construction, so if subjected to extreme temperature or humidity changes they may crack, but wont just break in pieces if you lean on it or the dog jumps on it. It is after all the core of a walking cane.
This one is nylon strung. There is no truss rod. Many different stringing options exist. Create your own!
Wood selection can be just about anything within reason that I have on hand, like walnut, cherry, ect. I have a fair stock of nice old wood. If you wanted one out of solid Bloodwood or Purpleheart or some other monkey wood, we can do that, but it may cost a bit more.
The tuners are zither pins. I include a #10 Clock Key for the tuners. Clock keys are nifty, they can go on a key ring or a watch chain.
Custom Gig bags are available. Made locally by Etsy member SophiaWorksf8. Contact me or SophiaWorksf8 for details.
I have a sound sample here:
International Shipping is not a problem. I do it all the time. The length of this instrument makes the international shipping a bit more. Completion time will vary with my workload, but generally an item would ship within 2 weeks of a confirmed order.
Finally, I have been professionally designing and building "Different" instruments for over 30 years. If you have a questions please ask in a conversation. That's how this one got listed!
