Some of you may remember this little guitar. The left image is what it looked like out of the box when I purchased it on clearance from walmart. The right image is what I reworked it into for a simple faire instrument. If you read about it then, you may remember that it was stolen when someone broke into the school and took it from my classroom. I hope they can play well, because if they can’t… well, it plays just like the $17 dollar children’s guitar that it was. Good luck with that.

I got another one through ebay for around the same price, and I’m re-pimping it.

It’s not finished… I’ve ordered a new bridge saddle and nut in black (I hope they fit), and I have a cheap piezo bridge pick up coming too – before I fasten that rosette in place… (the jury is still out on the rosette until I know how much the sound may be muffled.)

Oh, and the writing is the Lord’s Prayer in Gaelic with a 7th century Uncial hand.
