"I thought for a minute you bid on and won the crappy SJ180 that's up there now. One of our birds is an Alexandrine parrot, the largest of the parakeets.  He's a dull 2 tone green with a very large red beak and a very long tail.…"

"I always look at the shipping weight.  Too many of them say 49 lbs = about $50. The action is 3/16"????  That's very high.  I prefer 3/32".   The fretboard is supposed to dip very slightly at the 14th fret,…"

"Not only isn't it worth that much in good condition, they butchered the top with the patch instead of taking the time to humidify it over a few days.  It's ugly.  Maybe $50 ugly.  :?)"

Glued a couple of frets. Leveled and crowned all frets. Installed my own lighter version of the JLD Bridge Doctor. Put on a fresh…See More
