The FG-230 is $102.96 - the FG-260, $135.00 - 3 days left and 7 hours left, respectively...

There are a couple of FG-230's within a hour (or so) of me.  One for $275, looks mint but the action may be high.  Another for $95, condition not obvious by the pictures, and 1.25 hours away.  If it was close I'd take a look and offer less.

5 days left - the 230 is up to $90.00

Well, I had a Les Paul SG Custom that had a chip out of the back. I sent it to the Good Old Boys in the repair shop who re-sprayed and rebuilt it. I had them refinish it in Brunswick Bowling Ball Blue metal flake and have to say I was absolutely delighted with the job they did. It took them a year, so don't expect a quick turnaround, but keeping in touch with them is important so they know you care. I had the tech who rebuilt mine sign it off on a label inside the back cover so its history was recorded. You might consider doing the same so the story behind its repair is recorded. There can't be many HB 12s around that were 'modified' in an earthquake! Glad you were ok which is the most important thing.

Well, in August we had a 6.0 earthquake in Napa. A bookcase fell on my 2010 Gibson Hummingbird 12 string breaking its neck. Since it was the ONLY HB 12 made that year, a 'one of a kind' I just sent it off to Gibson Repair and Restoration. I'm hoping for the best for my favorite guitar. Does anyone have experience with Gibson R n R?

I already have 2 12 strings - and you guys are giving me GAS!  Both of mine have spruce tops - if I get another, it will need electronics and need to have a cedar top...  ;-)

If this Taylor had a cedar top, I would need to devise a plan...however, Godin makes very nice Seagull, Art & Lutherie, and Norman cedar-topped 12-strings (I don't think Simon & Patrick makes one anymore)...I need to devise a plan...

Thanks, all. I have not been playing guitar, or doing much of anything, for the past couple of years or so but this guitar is getting me playing again. Great deal for the money.
