I am speechless over what people think they can sell.

"We've custom-modified the YAMAHA Guitarlele GL-1 to resemble a vintage 19th-century guitar. After completely removing the paint, it's been finished with shellac for an antique appearance. We've added a short-tailpiece, original hand-carved bridge, and a soul pillar to prevent top sinking and improve resonance. Tuning is regular, just like a guitar, for a familiar playing feel."

Doesn't even make a good wall hanger. 🥴
 
I have Scrabble tiles with a nicer finish.

Fell out of the ugly tree and kept pickin’ up a bit more ugly as it hit every limb on the way down.
I’ve often cobbled together ugly utilitarian stuff but never as a product to offer for sale.
“Soul pillar”? Is that poor translation or evangelist doublespeak for a violin- style sound post?
EDIT- It’s as if you added ground effects, fender flares and a hood scoop to an AMC Pacer, a/k/a The Wheeled Terrarium. :ROFLMAO:

Take a close look at the fretboard end… was it chopped off in such a meandering arc with a dull flathead screwdriver, or gnawed by a teething puppy?

That was my first thought - maybe not the exact words - but it seems that the GL-1 comes that way

I can’t see one of them without thinking of Garth Algar 😂
 
Y'all haters gonna hate. :ROFLMAO:

Honestly, I don't hate it. I don't like it enough to pay $500 for what is still fundamentally a GL-1 though :oops:

I was thinking, if a person wanted this instrument, they could try to make one at least three times before spending as much as the seller is asking for this. It doesn’t seem that difficult.
