Ever heard of a Cumbus?
A customer had brought in an interesting instrument called a Cumbus. It visually resembles a banjo and has an aluminum body and a resonating sound board.
What is really interesting about them is that they were originally configured as an Oud but, by switching out the neck and strings, they can be converted to other styles of instrument as well.
The customer that brought this one in wanted a guitar neck built for it to add to the many possible conversions.
