I think my hands are too big for this!
Just like the violin I tried to play when I was 10.

Yeah, but imagine the intervals you can play on that one... 2 octaves played on one string without shifting the hand... I think I need to get one of those... do they come with a whammy bar ? :)

Very good.

Surprisingly, it looks like this initial market entry is a left-hand model, (and intended for playing small venues).
