If the seller says it's a banjo, then it MUST be a banjo!

Haha, oh dear! Can't tell if it's just a mistake or they really don't know what it is. Ridiculously high price too!

At least the seller didn't call it a clarinet.

I thought It may have been the elusive Octophonechordia, but alas, no....

Wow!IT has 8 strings. That makes it even better. You can lose four and still be okay. Well maybe three strings...

Why, I've seen beat-up flattop mandolins that I wouldn't pay that much for!

Yesterday I emailed this seller to alert him/her to the fact that this is a mandolin, not a banjo...The seller's response was to not correct the listing, and instead email me an offer of $500 to buy this.Wow, what a deal.

That jumped quite a bit. Is this thought to be civil war or prior?
