Heavily inlaid raindrop-shaped acoustic guitar

This bizarre raindrop-shaped guitar is supposedly a one-off, although to me it looks typical of some of the Far Eastern manufacturers who specialise in intricate inlay work. The fact that it has its own custom-shaped case is quite impressive.

I am reminded of the electric Gruggett Raindrop guitar that we looked at on Guitarz in November 2009, although with what in Gibson terminology might be referred to as a "reverse" body design.

Oh, and a note to eBay sellers. Make sure your guitars offered for sale have strings on them! It makes for a more attractive prospect, even if the buyer is going to change them, and also looks a damn sight better in the photographs.
