I bought a Blueridge BR240 and the wife says the Parkwood has to go.

Parkwood 310M Acoustic Guitar

I purchased it on E-bay last spring. It is a very nice guitar. Sounds good and is easy to play. Action is low. It is a solid wood, sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. No Pick up. This guitar has a booming sound and needs a good home. It is a lot of guitar for the money. This list on the guitar is $699. Guitar Center generally sells them for $499.00. I don't pay shipping however. YOUR COST ON THIS GUITAR IS $300/Offer and a darned good buy at that. That's what I paid for it. It sounds more expensive. On this guitar the neck was cracked and repaired. Hard to tell unless you look closely. The repair should be stronger than the original wood.

The Parkwood PW310M Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar has a solid spruce top, and solid back and sides. Braces are hand scalloped and cosmetic appointments are elegant. The PM310M is finished in an ultra thin "open pore" finish that lets the sound come through loud and clear.

Whether you've been playing for years, or are looking to upgrade to your first high quality instrument, Parkwood is your only choice for solid woods, expert build, exceptional playability and real tone at an extraordinary price.

OPEN PORE FINISH
This finish is applied in several layers that allow the open pores of the wood to be felt and to also allow the wood to breathe and vibrate at its best. You can actually feel the wood grain, like it was a raw unfinished piece of wood. The tone of an open pore finish is loud, alive and natural.

TOP - Sitka Spruce (Picea sitchensis)
Sitka Spruce comes from the Pacific northwest and today is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops. Sitka is a bit stronger and stiffer than other spruces. Its strength and toughness make it well suited for steel string guitars.

BACK & SIDES - Mahogany (Khaya ivorensis)
Mahogany is softer and lighter than Rosewood. Generally, Mahogany is warmer and has more low end, providing a strong, thumping bass with an emphasis on clear, bright, airy, trebles. It's also used for bracing, binding, end blocks, heel blocks and necks
