comment How much is too much damage?
Here's a question and answers on how to generally identify a good acoustic guitar. music.stackexchange.com/questions/1496/… You mentioned dreadnoughts. My acoustic is a dread, and I like it, but it's big. This is needed for projection and fighting fiddles and banjos for volume, but I'm finding smaller guitars to be enticing, and would help your husband introduce your sons to guitar music too.

I was on the fence, but yeah, I'll go with amalgamate. Solid top is a requirement.

comment Putting a steel string on a classical guitar? (classical guitar with truss rods)
I understand that the frets are generally of softer material and will tend to get tore up by metal strings.

Why do people keep wanting to do this? "It's a bad idea", we say. "But this time it's different!", they say.

comment Do musicians that began playing from an early age have an incontestable advantage?
I see the opposite; lots of people who see me carrying my guitar case it whatever and tell me "I took lessons as a child, but I haven't played in years". There are times I don't play for weeks, I have a life and other interests, but years without making music? Nothing makes me sadder

comment Guitar Banjo used as G-banjo
People play around with tunings all the time. I'd guess it's doable but I've only played around in guitar stores with gitjos, so I'm not 100%.
