From 86
My 5212 s# sl 861146 was purchased in 1986, in efforts to help keep me at home when I was 14 yo. Anyways, still have it. It's been threw hell. And play it for a week, Then pick up an electric. Ha ha. Yes it was* Hard' on my fingers. Especially as a thin skinned skinny kid. And taking oppertunity to use school walls to scrape my fingertips along as I walked in effort to build calis did work long term, but often excessively tender and waundering away from the schoolyard, I realized all it took was; Play. Just play. Dont hammer it. Learn it. And that's when I fell in love with it. It Did have good acoustics. And right strings, with some minor mods; have made it a regular played. Too this day. But, too each there own. How I found here. Thought I'd look at what others thought of it. Well there ya go. My review of the 1986 5212.
