I noticed the lamp socket and power cord... It's almost ready to go! Some hot guy and a few small nails and a square of walnut and you'd be good to go!

Classic "slightly used" listing...

Is it me, or does it kind of look like a giant flugel?

That was the point. It is called the "fluba". (Look at the image address you posted.) The owner is Jim Self (who is the player in your photo), and he posts here on occasion. The maker is Robb Stewart.

Looks like it would depend too much on upper body strength for me. I might be able to play that thing for about 1 minute.

It is perfect for the tuba toss. Light, aerodynamic....
