This was my first (and so far only) acoustic guitar. I bought it in 1991 and because of the low price I paid, I thought it was worthless.
This particular guitar has travelled with me across the country in holydays, it has been soaked with saulty water once (don't ask...), it has been exposed to direct sun light for several days (sun can really fry you here in Portugal) alternated with night air humidity exposition and it has been bumped against walls, trees, floor... You name it!
The only thing I continue to do is to change its strings every 3 or 4 months!
I still love the purity of its sound!
