1930's Violin-Guitar Student Model 20 String Bow Ottumwa Iowa Goodwin Music

Sorry, this listing has ended.

Ended!

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.
