tiny little thing on Nano scale - these things become a labour of love!
Douglas fir box, pear bridge. Neck probably iroko.
nice old tuners, about 150g
Too small for me to play it properly, so wants some final fettling/trimming by/for someone with smaller hands. 150 or an interesting exchange; UK

That would be hard for most anyone to play (: Tune it to an open C and just barr chord it. Have you tried that? That's the only way to play these. It's cute. You should keep it!

Many apologies for setting you off on this nightmare journey! And thanks for the kind comments on your blog.

Ian Emmerson has practised on the nano since that original video, and produced this (whichI think means I met his brief to make it properly playable - by him):
