- One is a Jasmine (Takamine’s entry-level) ¾ sized Classical Style guitar that had a snapped headstock (which I easily, if crudely, glued back together to make a perfectly playable instrument). This gives the girls something they can play with as they graduate from the awful kids guitar I bought them a few years ago. Cost to me: $0.00
- The other is so poorly made (or refurbished) that there are no identifying marks on it. The value point here is potentially some tuners for the Ukulele project and a truss rod for a guitar neck later on. There may be some use for the back as the top of a Ukulele, but everything else is so bottom-drawer that the value with this guitar will be solely tearing it apart to see how an Acoustic is put together. Cost to me: $0.00
|A very unusual adjustable|
|Likely will cut one tuner off each|
side and use the tuners on a Uke.
|Quality abounds! Laminate top and a gorgeous ebony paint job on a clearly-not-ebony fretboard. |
No markings inside the guitar either. Must be the company that made it didn't want to be identified!\
|...and why not a painted saddle, too? Lifting off the soundboard, too.|
I don't think there's enough adjustment in the screws to compensate for that!
|Yeah, that's going to affect the playability.|
|The fretboard was clearly glued down, but I'm pretty sure |
the headstock-to-neck joint was simply a pressure-fit.
|Another view of the break.|
