CAJUN ACCORDION DISCUSSION GROUP
I only pay accordions with butt joints. They sound better.
Play, not pay. Don't know if the Globe has butt joints.
No where in a quality accordeon will you see a butt joint.
It is a cost cutter and time saver for the lazy or inept.
You will never see a butt joint in any type of woodworking in Japan.
I saw a lot of butts in Japan at the sento public bath...
