A sad sight

Recommended Posts

Last weekend I wandered into the local tender centre to see what guitars they had.

There in a case was an Admira classical which had been fitted with steel strings. The soundboard was badly buckled and the bridge is now held down by two bolts and nuts, which incidentally don't match. Apart from that it only showed signs of much playing.

Sad to see any instrument destroyed by ignorance.

And no, I don't think a restoration would ever happen for this one.

The case wasn't bad though .....

Tender centre ... It's a franchised organisation, quite a few around now. You take your unwanted bits and pieces in for display. People browse through and put in a secret bid for whatever they like the look of. Highest bid wins. It's slightly unnerving when you tender $50 for an item and find the next bid was only $5. But the theory is you bid what you're happy to pay. And you get to put hands on the items, which you can't do with eBay.
