Another time waster, just an excuse to look at interesting and beautiful instruments. (There are worse things to do on the internet, right?) I can't think of any other instrument that is done up the way many accordions are. I do like the classy, glossy black gentlemen with tasteful touches of chrome, but for this pageant I'm thinking of the colourful, the rhinestoned, bejeweled and ornate. And let's not pretend to be interested in talents, character or accomplishments - just looks. Maybe I'm being to shallow, but I don't think I'm the only one on this forum who has a bit of a wandering eye.
