Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
This Elvis Guitar is a music box which on being wound up revolves playing the tune "Love Me Tender". It is 10" tall, Its black plastic finish is somewhat scratched, but its worst flaw is that the neck is missing its facing , which would have (presumably) frets on it for looking at, not for playing. I have replaced the strings to make it a bit prettier, now that was a job. The music box inside is by Sankyo of Japan, the black plastic outside is marked "Made in Hong Kong". It's a piece of absurd kitsch, and yet...the tune is very melancholy and sweet. This would be an odd but not inappropriate accessory for a nursery.
