1 kc_eddie_b 6 months ago I just acquired this interesting beast! Made by a Carlsbad Californian named Bill Tipton. I've seen a couple other of his examples for sale on-line. All very different, and clearly one-offs. This one plays beautifully! If it were a brand-name model I would say it's probably mis-matched aesthetically, but as a hand-made one-off, the craftsmanship is amazing and it works for me!
