I bought this old guitar at a garage sale for $7. It needs new strings so I will have to buy some when we go to the music store in the area. The former owner of this told us that he used it when he was a little younger but got tired of it and just leave it in the storage. A guitar maintenance is absolutely needed in order to have a good working condition on the instrument. As you can tell in the photo, the guitar really need a lot of TLC for it to work.
