Garage sale find friday

Garage sales are still really spotty around here. Sometimes there are lots, other times, not so many. I did pick this gem up today though and I am totally psyched about it! My oldest son (11) plays guitar and is getting quite good at it. He still has a low end child size guitar that he got when he was 6. So when I saw this, I didn't think much of it, in fact, I was walking away from the sale when I decided to ask about it. It's a Fender 6 string acoustic guitar with a Martin hardcase. The case alone is worth what I paid for the guitar. I was so excited I had to call my hubby at work! The guy had the guitar listed for $50, and while the guitar is well worth it, I didn't need the guitar that badly to pay that much for it. I managed to get him down to $35 but after putting together all the cash I had, I only had $34 to give him. SOLD!

I think I am going to have one happy little pre-teen on my hands when he gets home from school today!
