Timing is funny. I recently bought a "travel guitar" thinking it would be good to leave on boat but decided the sound is more like a mandolin so it's not going to get much use. I will probably just buy a cheap guitar and use that.
And hey guitar center has a special, buy 10 sets of coated strings for $100 and get a free acoustic guitar! I am sure it's a super high quality instrument but hey the price is right and if nothing else you have 10 sets of coated strings for another guitar.
