Thread Name: $$ for Vintage Autoharp?
Subject: RE: $$ for Vintage Autoharp?
It is U.S. made. Question about strings--They are probably 10 years old, though never used. I just opened the package on them yesterday--before I realized I didn't have the time to go ahead and restring it. Are they good as new?

I'd like to start the bidding as high as is reasonable in terms of the worth of the instrument, to maximize the benefit of the sale to the FSGW scholarship fund. However--I don't think people often come to the Getaway prepared to spend much in the auction. It will do the FSGW no good if I end up taking it home again, because the opening bid is more than this particular crowd is prepared to shell out.

What to do...what to do....?
