Overall Rating:
I have other better guitars, but this one is very handy to have hanging on the wall by the computer if I find something on the net I want to learn to play. It is also easy to play. It has a lot of wear on it, so if I scratch it is hard to tell! Very good value if you can get it cheap. Lots of fun as a "beater" or campfire guitar.
Price: $0.00
Where Obtained: free (was going to landfill, but I saved it!)
Features:
I just found out its a Model 928. Made in US. Wood is either fruitwood or birch. Has a natural finish. Has a bridge/tailpiece setup, sort of like a jazz guitar. It seems very durable, with thick braces and lots of glue inside! I think it has solid woods in it.
Playability:
Action is OK, a little high starting at fret 10 or so. Neck is short scale and easy to fret for the basic chords.
Sound Quality:
Sound is loud and kind of dry. Think of Robert Johnson. Good for fingerpicking and slide. Bridge was missing when I got it. A friend gave me a bridge from another guitar.. and based on photos I found on the net, it looks very similar to the bridge that came with it.
Durability:
Very durable. I can tell that it was not taken very good care of in the past, yet it is not warped. Has a small crack in the top. Neck rod can't be adjusted. I guess you could play live with it, or use for slide. Bending strings will pull it out of tune. (March 2011) Added DR Strings, new Ping 2630 3 on a plate tuners (perfect fit!) for use this spring and summer as a travel or beater guitar. Going to lower the bridge a bit. Might handcraft a pickguard for it too.
