I don’t spend a lot of time looking for stuff, maybe one or twice a month I’ll hit my favorite dumpsters on the way home. I almost always get something from Home Sense, Bombay or Pier 1 Imports.

They need a little fixing but usually not much and then I can sell them at the flea market or keep it if I can’t bring myself to part with it.

Spring clean-up is always lots of fun and a real treasure hunt; I haven’t shown you near all the stuff I got this year. I focused on camping supplies this year in hopes of selling it at the flea market.

I love the adventure of never knowing what you’ll find, being able to fix it and make it useful is rewarding and hey! It keeps it out of the landfills.

I really get a sense of accomplishment salvaging “garbage”. I am continually amazed at what people throw away.

      What would you think it would be worth? I know without playing it you can’t say for sure: but I don’t have a clue what to ask or even consider for an offer. My son plays guitar and I offered it to him but he was here and didn’t even open the case to see it and is in Sask now and I keep moving it; it’s going to get damaged.

      I hate to part with it really, dang I should have kept up with my guitar lessons 40 yrs ago.

        I literally have no idea what it is worth, but doing a search on the model number has yielded nothing.

        I cannot find anything on it based on that model number. It looks like a classical, but the strangest part is the model number. Even on their website it isn’t listed. It might be a rare or discontinued series, but I cannot find any information to validate whether or not it is rare. It should be in the TG model family, but I cannot find a listing on it whatsoever.
