    A couple years ago I bought a 20 year old CE-22 with zero wear. The frets looked new, no sign a pick had ever touched the top and the finish on the back was so pristine it didn’t look like it’d been rubbed against clothing.

    The only cosmetic flaw was some light oxidation on the bridge. Vintage yellow with a quilt top.

    I think I paid about $900 for it.

    The guitar is ruined. I need a new one



    Good GOD, man. Just the thought of a scratch on my SE is making me want a new one

    Dad was ship's engraver USS Holland AS32 Holy Loch Scotland. I think 72-6


    I was surprised to learn of my family's long tradition of service going back to about 1900 when both sides immigrated. Lots and lots on both sides served in every branch except for Uncle Sam's Canoeing Gang. AKA Puddle Pirates

    I never got bent about anyone saying anything. If I did I do humbly apologize if it seemed that way. Just proud to have served and connect with fellow Vets.

    Oh, that was jxe, and probably was probably a comment to something else that someone else said. No harm, no foul.
