god placed the fossils in earth to confuse the humans into thinking that earth is older than it actually is, therefore, making men try and think outside the box....

Basically its a square metal tube with one string, and a lever at the top that controls the pitch. It also has a fretboard, and is played with a drumstick. If you search it on youtube, you should find a video of him playing it.

I've been wanting to use that cheese pic all day and thought this was a good time. Plus the PRS private stock really does have stunning guitars, works of art even.

Wouldn't really call most of these exotic! I actually have a one-man project that uses a lot of old traditional Irish/Greek/Norse instruments over guitar melodies (Uilleann pipes - an Irish form of bellows-blown bagpipes, a Greek Bouzouki - a modern form of a Lute, an Irish flute, etc.) I've also been playing a lot with the Nyckelharpa (keyed fiddle) and the Hardingfele (a type of fiddle from Norway with sympathetic strings.) I'm also in the process of getting a Cimpoi custom made, as well as a Bombarde - which is like a medieval incarnation of a modern oboe!
