I just bought a hand made in japan ibanez acoustic m340. It's over 30 years old yet looks like it's still new, my question is are old guitars like this tough enough to be used as a main guitar, it would be a shame to kill such a beautiful instrument.

It's a guitar, it's made to be played. There's still playable guitars around that were made in the 30s. Also, all guitars are hand-made, so that's not a factor.

I guess that answers it. Anything I should do for my new/old axe to make it battle worthy?

Yeah. My classical's probably around 30 years old and I use it all the time.

Depends on who else is at said bonfire. If they're the sort of dicks who like to burn anything combustible when drunk, then **** no.

Yep. Individual parts can be machine-made, but most of the rest is done by hand, even the cheapest chinese-made instruments

Clean/oil up that fingerboard. Also play it. I own one that's 29 and play it daily.

So the "hand made from select woods" sticker is just to sell it huh? Cause I know for a fact only the top is a solid wood the back and sides haven't aged nearly as much suggesting a laminate wood
