The Zither Family Instrument Company has announced that it will be selling instruments on eBay starting on January 1, 2019.
The instruments will include a Zither Series I, II and III, and a Z.E.M. series.
The Zither instruments will be available for $20,000.
The company’s Facebook page notes that the Zither is a “family of instruments that have been in the Z. E.
M Series for decades”.
M (Zither Series II) is a new and unique model that will be sold for $25,000 in a limited run.
It’s a classic “Z” family instrument that uses a Zewhich design, and features a “double-barrel” pickup.
A (Z.E., M.E.) family is another classic “family” instrument that features a double-barrelled “C” shaped pickup.
It features a four-string neck with a rosewood fingerboard and neck-string truss rod.
In addition to the Z-series, the Z, S, and M instruments are available for sale in the US and Canada.
As with most of the Z1 family instruments, the P.
M, P.T., and S.T. instruments feature a “D” shaped maple neck.
“These instruments are made from the finest woods available to us, and we believe they are well worth the $20K asking price,” the company says.
While these instruments are still relatively rare, the company’s announcement is a positive sign that eBay is getting serious about the Z’s.
