Parlor Guitar

My string bass clamps came in handy today when fixing up this tiny, beat-up, $8.00 guitar I found at a thrift store. It was good practice to glue because the open seam was very wide and warped, so the bout and rib needed to pushed in and re-glued in its original shape. It was a mini, less-intimidating version of the repair on my bass I worked on with Juan this last summer. That's something I'll post about soon. 

Also, huge props to Minwax wood stain markers and good-old Sharpies. 

I would call this parlor guitar a Monet — something that looks best from a distance. But when that Amazon guitar string order arrives and this little thing is strung up, I'll be really excited to share it with my boys and start teaching them.
