This Dodds and Claus guitar made in 1790 shows how innovative the American music scene has been for a very long time.


Unfortunately I think the piano action is missing.or at least I can't see it
The strings are single single paired paired paired and tripple. I could not see how the tuning was adjusted.


Just about the weirdest guitar I have ever seen.

Okay, Timothy. I'm tearing apart my kids' old Yamaha keyboard this afternoon. Stay tuned....but don't hold yer breath!
