One string fiddle neck by GPM on ebay

From Stephen John Prior on 4/9/2024 12:09:37 AM

I had an alert from ebay regarding a GPM one string fiddle neck this morning, Sadly the fiddle style body is missing. I thought this might be of interest to the group.

I saw that too. Just had another look and it's sold already!

Here is the eBay listing
ebay.co.uk/itm/156158050094?it...00%7C3000
and here is a picture from a catalogue. Perhaps the Matthew's neck had a body like that one.

I would think given the dowel angle more likely a violin shaped body. But I may be wrong I've not seen a complete Matthew instrument.

i bought this, mainly because i had never seen anything from g.p.m. like it (i have (and had) a few of his banjos and i have a small collection of phonofiddles so i was intrigued) l thank you for the information.
