Those look really cool!  Some of them ones I was listening to have 21 strings!!!  Very odd instruments.

Maybe it was a harpukulele?
I want to be a musician when I grow up.
Sorry, son, you can't do both.

See that , ye made such a big fuss about guitars not being proper enough Irish session instruments that they felt the need to crossbreed guitars with the Irish harp, so's they could fit in!   ::)    :D

Lovely sound, can't help thinking of the Elephant Man when I look at them though. ;)

(The instruments I mean, not the players)
