I have an acoustic guitar that was the first Christmas present that my wife gave me 24 years ago. We were only dating then. It's an Ibanez PF 5, and came in a package with a gig bag, a Peter Pan pipe tuner, some picks and a stand. I had mentioned at one point that i had no guitar at the time, and she said " Don't you dare go and buy one". So it didn't come as a surprise. What did come as a surprise is that, for a supposedly "cheap" guitar, how good it sounded and played. It boomed on the bass end, and rang like a bell on the upper end. After 24 years, the neck is still straight, the frets are good, there are no problems with the bridge pulling out, and the tuners work good. It stays in tune pretty good. With new strings, which it needs now, it still booms and rings like a bell. I remember that it was almost white when new, but now the top has aged to a mellow yellow. It's light weight and comfortable to play. I wouldn't trade it for a vintage Martin or Gibson.
