Surfing YouTube again! I came across the wildest "string" instrument I've ever seen and would like to know what it is. It looks like the love child of a harp and guitar!

And here we go!

 Thank you! I thought that was the name of the group. Very interesting music scale. Do you think one could be made from an old dresser drawer with a guitar neck?

My Serbian friend had one in their home, but it was off limits for touching, so I never dared?

Hi Hooch, very nice, so was the instrument, sounded great. You may nead a bit more than a drawer. There seems to be a fair bit of mechanical (levers and stuff) going on there too. Don't forget to post photos when you are done.

LOL Taff, I bet that it would be fun to play! I think you're right about needing more than a drawer. More like a house, car and a big bankroll. :-) What do you mean when I'm finished with it? I put this out there to give "you" inspiration, that is way above my pay grade!

Brian, were you talking about the instrument or the neighbor? Got to be careful that can get you killed!

D'oh! Daaawg! AHAHAHAHAAH!
