Weird Instruments: Made Here in Nebraska

Another weird instrument from the collection held at Hastings College of Nebraska.

Front and back views offer a trapezoidal take on the string instrument, that believe it or not, had some ingenuity and real thought into its construction.

An interesting take on the scroll box, as it was completely carved out!

The scroll's head played off of it's body's geometric shape with a cubic head and a gemstone atop.

Inside the instrument, the maker's claim of origin: right here in Omaha, Nebraska.

Would love to find if any one knows of a Con Nelson.
