Free Guitar Day!!!!
Had a rare Monday off and decided to turn that new Vox AC15 up and dust off the speakers after the kids headed out for school and the missus left for work.
Later I saw that the neighbor could use a hand moving some stuff. As we were talking he asked me if that was me he heard playing “sounded like the blues” he said.
After I apologized for being so loud he told me he had some ‘student’ guitars he wasn’t using and would I like to have them? I asked to see them and he showed me this Yamaha FG-75 and an ukulele sized nylon 6-string by First Act.
I’ve always enjoyed Yamaha guitars and when I strummed this one I was really happy…sweet airy tone like only an old guitar usually can sound. Even with rusty strings I could tell it was a nice little guitar.
Now she’s strung out in D’Addario’s and all lemon oiled and fancy.
The tuners need to be replaced and a new nut and saddle will help the action. I got not quite a half turn out of the truss rod which improved things a bit.
Super sweet surprise!
