Dear Abby,

My sopranino now carries evidence of its recent Siberian travels (and travails!). Is this "bling"? Or does it have to have something hanging from its headstock?

Yours,

Travellin' Man

That's actually pretty bamf... wondering if I should follow suit... nah, mine's too shiny for my tinkering with stickers! But yours looks awesome: I think it qualifies for bling-blang.

Dear Travellin' Man,

While bling is most commonly hung from the headstock, it is not the only acceptable place. Your bling counts.

Regards,

It says Krasnoyarsk (Красноя́рск), a large city in Siberia.

Krasnoyarsk is the home base of Balalaika Underground. :cool:

It was originally a wooden fridge magnet depicting the seal of the Krasnoyarsk region of Russia. It's such a big region, it's its own time zone - exactly 12 time zones (or half-way round the world) from the Eastern US time zone. We happen to be based in the city that shares the region's name.

I cut the magnet off and used Elmer wood glue to afix it to the instrument. Ain't gettin' it off - ever!

Now when some one ask you if that is a tiny guitar you can point at the sticker smile and say "Nyet".
