I was just given a Yamaha C40, by my cousin, who found it in her basement. She had bought it for one of her kids years ago, but they had no interest. I appreciate the gesture, that she remembered that I'm a guitar player, and gave it to me, but it's missing the nut, saddle, strings, and the button of one tuning peg. To restore it, in both time and money, I'll probably be out over $50 at least. I've also never done a classical nut, or acoustic saddle, so it's a bit of an experiment. Anybody have one? Do they sound usable for recording, or anything? It's the beginners model, so... It reminds me of an article I read in a motorcycle magazine called, "Free Bikes, and Other Nightmares."
