A piped OS .32 F but if that doesn't work out I'll put a LA .40 on it.
Thank you

Nice plane but anything you'd like to share about that Dreadnought in the background?

Hey Tigre it's a Marina, I did some searching and by what I could find this model is a Takamine rip off built in the old Check repuplic, all I do know is that I only paid $75.00 for it at a pawn shop it has a curved neck with great action plays great and has a realy bold sound so for 75 bucks I'm very happy with it.
Thanks for asking
Dwayne

Sounds like a great deal. Age & use do contribute to improve the sound. From what I can see in your photos, you might even consider a kit for one of these as your winter project. Keep a pickin' and grinnin'.
