My fellow UG'ers, I need your advice.


I was going through my closet today, and I discovered this old Johnson guitar that I haven't played (or even seen) for about a year and a half. I totally forgot I was still in possession of it.





The guitar is very dusty, and it only has three strings on it:





And here's a pic of me holding it, so you know its legit:





I mentioned earlier that it's a cheap, $100 Johnson, and being in the condition it's in now, it's probably not worth very much. Here's what I consider my options


-Sell it, make as much as I can off it.
-Put some work into repairing it, get some new strings and stuff, keep it.
-Put it back in the closet/time capsule
-Donate it to an underprivileged youth who can't afford a musical instrument so he can discover his inner love for songwriting and music composition
-Light it on fire
-Play one more show with it, then smash it on stage (Sex Pistol style)

What should I do?

Donate it if you aren't going to play it. You could give the next amazing songwriter his first guitar. imagine how cool that would be.

but fix it up a bit before giving it to him.
#3
Donate...

If you can't find someone then SMASH IT!!!

haha I've always wanted to bust up a guitar like that on stage.

I say you do all of those...in this order...

-Put some work into repairing it, get some new strings and stuff, keep it.

-Play one more show with it, then smash it on stage (Sex Pistol style)

-Light it on fire while

-Donate it to an underprivileged youth who can't afford a musical instrument so he can discover his inner love for songwriting and music composition

If they dont want it then

-Sell it, make as much as I can off it.

If that fails then

-Put it back in the closet/time capsule

Problem solved

I'd keep it for sentimental value, but donating is good too.

Give it to a kid. Who knows, maybe he will practice endlessly and be the next John Petrucci.

If it only has three strings, there's only one logical answer:

Play "Get out of my yard" by Paul Gilbert on it.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Yes, he can drink chemicals through a cup and into his hands.

OH! and he'll have a custom rack made my Mr. Rackman with custom 40's by Ghandi!
