... I guess this goes in "other."   From a site called Presley Dispatch >> my Facebook >> BHO:

"ARKANSAS HISTORY:

Photo: Ed Stilley and some of the instruments he made.  Edward Lawrence (Ed) Stilley was a farmer and instrument maker from Hogscald Hollow (Carroll County Arkansas)."

May be an image of 1 person, guitar and text

... and the '55ish (?) Chev looks okay, too.

Jimmy Driftwood , also an Arkansan who wrote The Battle of New Orleans and Tennessee Stud, had a unique guitar that he made himself.

Yup, the lyrics to "8th of January" fiddle tune. (But I'm betting you already know that.)

Paul, maybe you can have your cake and hear it too?? 

I think I've heard about "convertible" banjos [not to be confused with conversions], so why not an instrument where the cake pan can be put in/taken out depending on which need/like is uppermost at that moment?  

.... or just leave the pan in and add to the wood's torrification [if torrification is even a word]??

P.S. Don't mind me .... I'm just killin' time.  wink

Are you out of your gourd? Listen to a cake????  People would think I'm loony! (And they might be right.)

P.S. What kind of cake?

P.P.S. What kind of cake does a baseball player prefer?

...

...

"Bunt" cake.

In the FOOD COURT???

If THIS guy is the ARRESTING OFFICER...,

...will it be a  FAIR trial?

Paul: "Listen to a cake???"

'Twas my [apparently feeble] attempt at a mixed/mangled metaphor/proverb/??

[Seemed/sounded/??  like a good idea at the time.*]

* = in retrospect, to me, it still does.   wink

===========================================================

Edit: Late news flash ...  fwiw, "clicking" on the OP pic opens the Facebook page [wherein there are some comments ... some from people that knew Mt. Stilley].
