Cole’s Eclipse Man In The Moon project.

This instrument has had a hard life and inappropriate modifications and repairs have been done over the years. It is for a project or parts. Though the pictures tell the story, though a few details are worth noting.

The peghead inlays and the 22nd fret are the only ones that look like they are original. All the others look like replacements.

The hole for the 5th string tuner goes all the way through the neck.

The rim has been cracked and poorly glued back together The tonering has plenty of dents. The tension hoop is still solid, but has plenty of wear.

Scale length is 27”, rim diameter is 10-9/16”

No other parts other than what is shown in the pictures are included. The price includes the neck with the glued in dowelstick, the rim, and the tension hoop.

Many more pictures are available here;
