I was also touched by the stories here. I'm looking forward to teaching my granddaughter how to play. I'm teaching her big brother, right now, but she's only 4 years old, so I will probably wait a year or two.
And I too own a Strunal guitar, model 4655. They are the largest instrument manufacturer in Europe, having been recognized for "European Excellence" :contrat: and the guitar division is located in the town of Luby, in the Czech Republic. It's a full-size classical guitar, with a 52mm nut, cedar top, mahogany back & sides, with a high-gloss finish. The tone and volume is greater than my other classical guitars, and I was quite surprised. When I first got it, it needed a few parts, so it described as a "project guitar" and didn't cost me much. The bindings are black, so I replaced the white/gold tuning machines with black/gold tuners with ebony knobs, supplied a nut & saddle, and it now looks as good as it sounds!
