Doesn't get much uglier than this, folks...

It certainly looks like a real Ozark folk peice to me. The back wood looks like black walnut, the top pine, and the "varnish" looks like it was simply a few coats of linseed oil rubbed on. I have a neighbor who has a very similar looking home made fiddle. The wood looks the same color and the finish is the same. The strings are old piano wire.

Here's the photo of the "Cowboy Fiddle" I tried, but failed to include with my previous post on this thread. I think it is a contender for the title. It was found in a Texas second-hand shop. Probably made during the long evenings in the bunkhouse. Complete with steer's head "scroll" and haired bow. Kinda neat, but I bid too low! [image]mysite.verizon.net/maunesha/[/image]
