    1 - Maybe she's a top player (her two lessons were advanced tapping lessons) and she felt this guitar was beneath her.
    OR
    2 - Maybe she plays guitar in the Vienna Symphony (her two lessons were in advanced mixolydian studies) and the others in the symphony snobbishly laughed at her guitar so she sold it.

    Everyone needs an “at hand” acoustic.

    Just as with other Gretsches until relatively recently, I didn't "get" the acoustics - but this is gorgeous. Nice score!

    Everybody needs a great little strummer for out on the deck.

    Personally I'm considering a Taylor GS-Mini for all those times I don't want to haul the dread around. Those things sound bigger and more expensive than they are.

    Great find, love the Ranchers all the way from the 6 strings to the 12 string jumbo. These are a great value. They are easy to set up, and the reward is a guitar that plays as if it costs thousands more. Congratulations on a wise purchase.
