"Yes.  I hope not!  I have too many guitars and rarely have time to play them!  Of learn to play them.  I would like to find a FG-300 cheap.  I was hoping no one else was watching it and I could get it for under…"

"Check the neck relief first.  Press the 1st and 14th frets and tap the 7th fret to get an idea of what the gap is.  It should be about .008, 2 pieces of paper.  If it is more, then turn the truss rod clockwise 1/8 turn, retune, and…"
