    Question what will I do with it ? 1 sell it as a second ?..2 scrap it or burn it ? .. 3 try and fix it ?.. 4 give it away ?.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Take the name off and give it to a kid. They'll have fun with it and you "name" probably won't mean much to them anyway (nothing personal)

    Let me know how much you would want for it.
    That would seem a fair way forward to me. A KT 2nd has a value. Mark up the label, take the money and look happy.

    No volcanoes but many years ago, I was awoken one night by an earthquake. The epicenter was about ten miles away, at great depth. It dislodged a couple of chimney pots, as I recall.

    Anyway I strung it up and gave it a test... altho the construction is a bit off ... It sounds very good, and is easy to play with an action of approx: 2.8mm at the 12th fret..Here is my attempt at "I'll see you in my dreams" chords (from memory)...Ill take a few pics and put it up for auction later.

    It looks WAY TOO GOOD for a sacrifice.
