Topic: Cheap but valuable.
A few years ago I picked up a First Act parlor size acoustic for around $70 bucks brand new at Wal-Mart. I taught one grandson to play on it. He now has a couple guitars of his own. It hangs on the wall on a string until it gets knocked off or I decide to put chords to a song I am trying to learn. It's small and comfortable as I sit strumming with my feet up on my desk. Grabbing it saves a lot of wear and tear on my grown up guitars until I get the song arranged the way I want it. I don't think it has ever had a new set of strings on it. When I take a set of Elixers off my Yamaha I put them on the First Act. Sounds better but not great but what can you expect. Just felt like sharing that. 3 more grand kids coming up to knock it around a bit also.
