I took it home and left it there.
I can't imagine what the marine environment
would do to a fine handcrafted wooden instrument like a spinet.
I once had a gibson w/6 way selecter switch rather than the toogle,was a Les Paul cutaway and a Carlos Santana signature model...Dont remember what that model was called.... Santana ,great humanitarien(?sp)...I have a smaller scale Washburn with a full range neck that has a nice case and never goes out of tune, no maint. problems other than a little light machine oil
on the strings and it has been on the boat for more than 2 years...also have some of those little bong-go drums from the 60s,they cracked open after a few months on board ..I rewound the bottom and they work fine now..
