Stringed Instruments

How many different jokers do you think there are in the world that have string instruments in them?

I have about 55 different stringed instrument jokers. (Plus 20 that are in the upside down section which I describe in the article below).

I expect that I have about 5% of the different jokers in the world. That means that there might be one thousand different jokers with stringed instruments on Earth.

Or more! Or less. Who is to say?  Anywho, lets starts off with this joker with a great hat and a lute.

This post starts with a selection of my favorite two dozen of the stringed joker musicians. The next  one has a royal or court jestor playing something like a cello.
This next joker has a guy wearing maybe a Roman toga while carrying a lyre.

Another lyre? Tiny harp?

Next one: "Saga" ~ Piatnik ~ 1977.

WHOA, that last one was playing the stringed shovel? Before we continue, I should mention that are about 20 stringed jokers which I have in the topsy turvy section of my collection but I'll cross list them here.  

And now back to the pure string section...

I love these next two playing their banjos and singing alone. I wish I could hear what they're singing. Any ideas?

This next joker is probably singing in Latin along with his mandolin. I hate Latin.

Where is this guy with the mustache and hair from? And what's the name of his stringed instrument? Please answer in the comment (and win two free jokers from me from my vast assortment of duplicates!)

Is he singing the old La Cucarachas song

I'd like to end with this masked jester who dances, sings, plays his instrument, and probably jokes around too.  He is in the music section but he could easily have been put in the section for jokers with masks! 

Here's the collection of musical stringed instrument jokers in their pages.

Want to see the original post on musical jokers from the summer of 2017?

  Perhaps you'd like to see Elvis Jokers!
Or dancing jesters?
Or performing jesters

Or, are you interested in trading with me? I'm not a great trader due to some organizational challenges. I prefer to buy jokers since its simpler but I'm starting to get organized to trade also.  Jokers for trade
