Thread Name: $$ for Vintage Autoharp?
Subject: RE: $$ for Vintage Autoharp?
Went and dug the old thing out from under the bed. The memory is only partially failing. I do have an unused set of strings--but the body--while sound, is certainly not mint. Shows about as much wear as I do these 30 years later:o\ Some of the springs are missing. I have no idea how or when that happened.
    It had been years since I had it out of its case (I have joint problems that eventually led to me stopping playing both the autoharp and the guitar.) Handling it--cleaning it up as best I could without restringing it--was a poignant walk down memory lane.

    *sigh*
