I love carting around this a little travel guitar that my mother in law gave me. It's a little Yamaha which sounds pretty nice despite its size. I've had a lot of guitar players tell me that it has some decent tones to it. And then I remember that the strings for about 7 years old...and it still sounds fine. Enables me to keep practicing when I'm on a trip so I dont get rusty on the songs, or I can even write songs while I'm traveling.
