I deeply regret to inform you that I got rid of the 6” miniature harp with the cosmetic issues I was trying to fix and spruce up to make it look great, but the results were never satisfying. A short time after this photo was taken, I was trying to spruce up the strings and the neck of the harp to make it look better when the little tacks that held onto the strings suddenly popped off and I couldn’t put them back on no matter how hard I tried. I tried other things to fix the harp with paint markers, special string replacement, and superglue, but it didn’t work out no matter how hard I tried. Sadly and regretfully it lead me to throw the harp away. 🙁 (The decision of whether I’m marked for punishment or not is really up to Frank and his incarnates.) However, all is not lost. I’m keeping the trunk where the 6” harp was stored in so I can use it to store another 6” harp I have that thankfully has zero cosmetic issues.
It should never be a total loss at all. According to the ebay tracking updates I discovered that the Thunderbolts Punisher and another 6” harp which will replace the defect harp will both arrive tomorrow. And this time I hope the harp is without cosmetic decorative issues.
