I bought two mandolins for $5 each and this 12 string for $10.  Same person, cleaning out their junk. One of the mandolins was a semi decent El Degas from the 70s with a detached neck and missing bridge. And 10 years of dust. The other was a horrific MSO (mandolin shaped object) with a caved in top. I stripped all the parts off that one and sold it on ebay for $9.70. I used the bridge and tailpiece on the El Degas, once I reglued the neck and flattened the fretboard in the process. I restrung it and sold it locally for $65.

I pondered even trying to make the 12 string playable.  If nobody buys it for 24.99 I may do some nasty things to it, hard to say.

That is probably my favorite eBay listing this year, but if you do end up doing something nasty.

Film it and share with us, please? 😈
