I browse local classifieds from time to time looking for interesting guitars and electronics. I finally found a guitar that I might be able to make money on, or just keep it and play it and enjoy it. I got a good deal. The guy who had it said it was given to him and he let his kids play with it a while and then they lost interest so it's been in his closet for a few years. At first I thought it might be a fake or something, you know the old "If it's too good to be true" but it seems legit. The strings are terrible and it needs a cleaning, but overall it's in pretty decent shape. After some detective work it's a 2001, and it has that nice older wood smell when you open the case. I can't wait to put some strings on this thing and hear it for real. I know it's hard to tell from this picture, but what would you guys think as far as value? From what I've seen you can barely sniff a Taylor for under $500.
