"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…"

"Sunday night I was shooting for a FG-300 with the pick guard coming off.  The rest of it looked great.  In the last minutes a feeding frenzy brought it up to $279 plus $45 for shipping.  Above my budget. I already had a replacement…"

"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…"
