Another Clean Up, Maintenance and Modification Project
This was an attempt some years back to build a Japanese Kankara Sanshin. Couldn’t find much info on dimensions etc, for this build, so just winged it, found out the scale length is somewhere between 600mm and 1000mm so went halfway with 800mm, BUT!, basically the final result was a “DUD”.

Scale: 800mm / 31½ inches
