About This Listing

Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting...
A very unusual Folk Instrument. Its a Violin-Guitar. I was told it was from the 1930's and came from a since closed Music Shop in Des Moines.
It comes with the shown bow and I believe its played by either strumming the 20 strings or bowing it like a violin. I did not attempt to change any of the strings or tune it. I'll leave that pleasure to the new owner.
The original label is still inside. It says..
                                               Violin-Guitar                                           Guaranteed 5 years                                                    $28.50                                     Goodman Music Company                                               Ottumwa Iowa

It has no cracks and appears to be all there. Don't ask what the letters and numbers on the sides mean. I have no idea. Sorry.... Wish I knew more history of this cool instrument but I can't find anything on the internet regarding it. If any out there know about, please contact me and I will happily report your informed knowledge of this very unique instrument.

Sold as-is no returns as its used and vintage. However, I have been hand picking my customers instruments for over 18 years now and they all loved the instruments I found them. This cool Violin-Guitar should not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool instruments.
