Electric Guitars/Sierra Acoustic Model S441

Question
Outside the box for model number there is also a number: 3F. This guitar is missing all of its six strings. On the inside label it says it was manufactured in China to strict educational standards. I'd like to know what to sell it for. Thank you.

Answer
Do you have any photos and more information on this guitar such as the condition. There is not much to work with but from what you told me it is nothing special. I would not be able to tell if it is playable, with out strings it is hard to say if the neck is straight of if it has a truss rod to straighten it. I would be hard pressed to offer as little as $15.00 for it. Chinese beginner guitars are very common. Send me some more info and I can be more help full to you.
Thanks for writing in, Kev.

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.
