It's a Cuban instrument called a tres, undoubtedly due to the three courses of strings (which doesn't explain the five-course Puerto Rican cuatro, but hey...); unless you're in an area with a large Latino population, sit tight for a while if you're interested - that one's not going anywhere soon @ $229...
