The minstrel and annex bands were features at the show grounds. Here were a group of colored minstrels, players, band people, under the direction of Edward Rucker... The band plays pretty airs of all kinds, suiting the music nicely to the work in hand. When the snakes were exhibited it played a charming waltz; somehow it fitted the exhibit; others were of similar propriety - The Indianapolis Freeman, July 4th, 1914, quoted in Ragged But Right by Lynn Abbott and Doug Seroff

Small-body, Retrofit, Stella style 12-string on ebay

I've followed Duane Heilman's work as a luthier for a number of years and he does excellent work - this could be a interesting one to follow and maybe bid on - if you are interested in this style 12 string.

24.25 seems like very short scale for a 12 string - would it end up sounding like a tiple?. Interesting concept, and maybe this would be something to think about doing to my surplus Oscar Schmidt-made instruments. However, it would seem that a top on such a small straight-braced body would have to be reinforced to the point of deadness in order for it not to fold in half...

Good points Joe - but I wouldn't think it would be heavily re-enforced with a 24.25 scale.... less tension with a short scale.  It is a short scale, but a tiple would have a scale of 13" or so.  24.25 is more like the scale of a Parlor guitar.  Interesting beast.  Satisfaction guaranteed - which his 100% feedback would indicate.

cheers,
slack
