Question
Hi I have a Austin guitar I found and I was just curious to know about it. I did not see anything on the internet when I did a quick search, so I was wondering if you could kind of help me. The model number is AU- 136N SLM Market Place made in China and its in playable condition but it looks a little worn.

Answer
Blaycee I looked up your Austin AU - 136N and did find some info on it. They are still sold in many different copies of Fender and Gibson Guitar models. Your was made 2000 to 2003. It is in with a group of guitars for beginners. Same guitar made under many names. They come in sunburst, red, blue, black and natural, I had a blue one under the name Galveston. They all sell for $99.00 in many types of stores. I think they are not bad for the money. Yes playable with a little work. I covered all I can tell you and hope you enjoy playing, Kevinpaul.

Guitars and cats make life so much better. Playing the guitar is a wonderful thing, fixing you guitar is not that hard. I have played since I was a kid and started to fix guitars and the other things that needed repair. I still repair guitars for friends and myself and do enjoy it. I rebuild old guitars to their former condition, all amps and music gear. That the mystery out of where and when a guitar was made. The value of it and the difference between junk and a guitar you can grow old with. Ask me things and have some fun.

Experience

The fascination with electric guitars is the top for me. I fix amps, wiring and put the things that fall off back on. The way to really set a guitar up and make it a player. Buying a guitar is an art, and good amps that will get out that tone we all look for, Zen guitar and amplifier is a way to approach it. Better is no worry ask an expert.
