Spaw, for your recipe file...

Mu Shu Armadillo
Perfect Possum

The charango is currently unstrung, as the busted bridge is dangling from its ten nylon tethers (it came unattached from the top - in two pieces). I forgot it over at BillD's house yesterday, where I'd brought it to a party for people to laugh at me, so I can't eyeball the neck to see if it's warped or not. The top is cracked in a couple places, and my husband has doubts about the structural integrity of the armadillo shell and the glue which binds the top to it. I know it's in bad shape, but hey, for $20, why not?
