Mosrite Crutch-shaped guitar

Joe does well to get past the spam filter by sending an email with the title 'mosrite crutch lapsteel', pointing me towards this wonderful one-off guitar built by Semie Moseley for his friend Barbara Mandrell, who was injured in a car crash in 1984. "When Moseley delivered the instrument, he fitted the instrument to her height in Mandrell’s husband’s basement workshop." It's now in the National Music Museum in South Dakota. More about Semie's life here.
