2012$125goodD. KeefeBought on craigslist in Sept. 2012 (at the moment it's Feb. 2016). It was in a cardboard case. The strings were poorly wound and one of the tuner screw holes was stripped which made the peg wobble when it was turned. So I got to learn how to fix that: I used slivers from a toothpick and a tiny drop of wood glue to shim the hole. That worked. I've never babied it and so it has a few scars, which I kinda like. Its value is only sentimental, but I'm going to spend a couple hundred on it this week: It's getting a professional setup, bone nut and compensated saddle, and a hard shell case. I'm excited!
