I have always found it amusing when someone is selling an older used guitar and the add reads "still has the original strings"
I have actually seen this more than once. Wow! if they only knew that not changing the strings is not a good thing.

Yep… those are the funniest ads. I love it when the ad reads something like this:
***All wood Silvertone acoustic guitar WITH ORIGINAL STRINGS! Very rare! Perfect condition except for a few bent (broken?) knobs and some cracks. Original pickguard screws!
I see these sorts of ads often and it always leaves my shaking my head (does the seller really think they are selling the Hope diamond here?). I hope this doesn’t make me appear as a guitar snob… I have owned quite a few of this level of guitar in my life and they were almost all functional. These days, I own one nice acoustic and a few decent cheap ones (along with a few cheap electrics).
