A friend of mine brought a dusty untuned guitar one day, Da Capo W-701.
We replaced the strings and cleaned it a bit, and it sounded really good. The action was low, the neck was a bit too straight, though, and as we tried to adjust the truss rod, it just didn't turn. And what I liked the most, the intonation was nearly perfect.
After the visit I searched about this guitar a bit, and found out it can be bought for only ~ 100€.
How is this possible? From the picture you can see that the top is solid, and I swear the back is also. The top is spruce, back&sides are agathis. Does the type of wood affect the price so much? And can this issue with "stuck" truss rod be repaired?
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.
