Apparently, this thing is "tuned like a baritone ukulele and played sort of like an autoharp, the KeyKord was the Depression-era's version of this generation's video game "Guitar Hero". Push the buttons and strum, and thereby become a musician."

"Built by the Stromberg-Voisinet company (Kay) and sold by The KeyKord Banjo Company of America (http://www.folkwaymusic.com/instruments/misc.html)"

I think you clicked on the link I also provided for the info I quoted. The link to the eBay item (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320685350926&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT) was below that and it's still going (22+hrs). No bids yet.

It's not mine and I'm not interested in it. I just found it kinda weird and cool.
