leeneia mystery instrument (40) RE: mystery instrument 14 Jan 22

It's possible that it's not supposed to be tuned to a scale. What if one tunes it to 2 or 3 chords and sings a song while strumming on it? That might explain the moveable bridge - it makes it possible to change the pitch while maintaining the relationship among the strings.

I'm hoping that someone who once bought one and has read the directions will come along and post to this thread.
A long time ago I gave a lecture at a folklore convention about contemporary proverbs. One of them was "When all else fails, read the directions."
