We moved from southern Illinois near St Louis when I retired. Moved to my wife’s family farm near LeGrand, Iowa. This is near Marshalltown. I do have some family near here. I did grow up in southern Missouri in the Ozarks where I started playing a guitar in 1958. Time does fly.
I just acquired an LG0 and it hasn’t had much play. The original strings are on it and we’re not rusty. They were loosened over the years. I talked to the elderly lady who owned it. She said her husband bought it for her and she ever did play it. I didn’t know it was anything until I happened to see somebody playing it on YouTube. I’ll be getting back to her once zI find out what it is worth. So I found this site after I was looking around. I also have a 1927 L4 snakehead arch top that I’ve had since the 60’s. Looking forward to reading your posts.
