Someone posted it in a facebook group and no one knows what it is.

I saw one of those in the net, but cannot remember what it was. Now I have to see if I can find it again. I suspect you know, and want to know if we know.

I am thinking an electric violin, but I am not positive. I have to find it again.

Wait, before I look for it, is it one of those portable electric violins? Wireless? Maybe uses a bluetooth signal, or battery pack? Didn’t pay a lot of attention to that photo I saw a while back because I was looking for something else.

Thinking outside the box here. Has to be something odd, or @Leaviathan would not be asking.

A harmonic destabilizer for generating 2nd order resonant frequencies.  Its missing the bearings so probably no good.  Lol

Geeze, @GregW I am trying to fix dinner and I had to stop and try to find out what it was you just said! LOL I couldn’t figure out why anything like that would ever come up mixed in with any search I did. I had to go look it up. Only found sound wave chart thingies. I bet my water is burning now! Oh, that would be a boil. I can put my pasta in! 

That was pretty funny. Got us both.

Too funny! Hey, electric violin was one of my guesses. Wasn’t sure if there was more photo to it.

Glad you solved your little mystery. 

I think the photo I saw was similar, but was a dulcimer.

But there's no way to slide the saddle, every aspect of it is fixed, besides the tuners

My guess was a hammer or electric violin. 😜
