It plays wonderfully....and I tuned it with my digital tuner several ways....but dont know tuning specs like you guys....I use the default tuning on my tuner....whatever that is.....I do know I dont go near as low as some songs do.

how's the action on it? those strings looked kinda high off the fretboard but it might have just been the angle.

You can see the closer you get to the bridge...the worse it gets.
But was easy to play and is adjustable....I just dont wanna screw with it though.

Anything lower than B tuning is retarded for the most part. Hell, even B is retarded for the most part.

The default tuning is probably standard. What gauge do the string appear to be? That thing has got to be fucking awesome. I'm stoked that you got to play such a classic guitar.

Too bad I suck...heh

I could be wrong but they appear to be the "A D G B" strings....neither E string seems to be in the order.....so somewhere in the middle I suppose.....I could be wrong.

I would pay your cousin off and keep it. It's pretty old and odd, you know it's priceless. Fuck ebay, fuck selling it, keep it, sit on it, pass it on to your children (if they play, etc).

not too bad seeing how old it is and that the high frets on an acoustic are practically useless.
if you manage to gain ownership of this guitar, i'd definitely take it to a luthier to have him check it out. maybe get an idea of just how much its worth.

Its such a nice guitar.


Offer a few hundred for it and see what she would be willing to take. Be like its pretty old, old guitars dont go for much because of their non-playability.

lol or some shit.


You must get it.

Before anyone complains about the action does it have a removeable nut? Like I said that Hawaiian guitar had a metal one. It was in addition to the one on it. and it was for laying across your lap and using a slide. The strings were supposed to be higher for that. Both guitars are from about the same era and I've got scads of Hawaiian sheet music from back then that a friend gave to me. 2 normal paper grocery bags full. If I can roust it up from my attic I'll see if there's some 4 string music in there.

Bia clean out your pm's!!! lol I tried to send you this.
"I hope you don't mind and I'll remove it if you do, but I posted something about your guitar find and the pictures on tabcrawler where I mod. There's a guy on there the same age as me and some older acoustic fans that might have some knowledge of it. I'm even wondering if my son would be interested in it depending on what the selling price is, but he's out at sea still. He's due in probably by the end of the August. He can get emails though periodically so I'lla tleast see if he might be interested.
I'm curious about it. It's such a neat find."

Congradulations on the find!! To bad that ignorant family member of yours wants to sell it. I envy you. I need to check more garage sales out, those things are gold mines.

Try to convince your cousin not to sell, if you can. It'll be a shame to let this leave the family when someone such as yourself enjoys playing music so much. Is she selling it because she needs to raise some cash urgently or because it's taking up space in the house? If it's the latter of the two offer her a deal by which you can keep the guitar and pay her off bit by bit or something!
Go get it valued though as you may wish to take out insurance on it.

Hmm. Looks pretty fucking nice. Hope you get your hands on it and drive your cousin away from it. Four strings, It would be sort of fun to try some finger picking/ classical on, maybe.

To answer....she's not desperate for money....however she collects expensive cutglass....1800s era stuff. It's partially my fault...after I tuned it and played it....she saw it still can perform and instantly thought of selling it.
She's wanting $1000+ and there's no way I can afford that....and she's determined to sell it so I'm kinda screwed.....and it is hers afterall.

My only hope for something good would be that if she can turn it into some decent cash....she said she would share a little with me for helping her out and shit.

We'll see.

If she gets a rough estiment....she's gonna E-Bay it I'm sure.

Oh yes...I'm not a guy


that would be a big mistake. that thing belongs in a guitar retirement home. considering some 60's strats is worth like 5000, your cuison could may a ton if she sell's it to the right person.

that guitar was made be form jimmy hendrix was born.

No dont do that. keep the string on.. and if you clean it make sure you only wipe in down with a dry cloth.

Anything can lower the value.
