Mu Shu Armadillo
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?
