Please tell Lynn to give me a call, there are a fair number around that can be bought for really good prices if you are patient. I just bought an almost new, rarely played 25 year old McSpadden for $150.00. and that included case, noters, strings, picks and all sorts of stuff.
So far as the crack is concerned I wouldn't worry too much about it right now if it is holding. , though folk like KenH and KenL can tell you more than I. Anyway, tell Lynn to give me a call before he decides to buy one any time soon. If its a local deal, I'll check it out with or for you if you wish.
