When I had it I put Dadi acoustic round wound strings on and tuned it E~A~D~G~B~E




JHS Falcon FG100R

I invited this as part of a job lot along with a pre civil war Spanish made Ukulele. What it is, is a JHS Falcon redburst dreadnought Acoustic Guitar that appears to be in need of a good clean. The Falcon is very much a student model of guitar from JHS and even with the nice redburst finish, (if it is nice under all of the dirt?) it wouldn't usually be something that I would invite. I wanted the Ukulele though, and if it is any good I can always sell it on(???) and if its not very good I can always strip it for spares.

It's here now and I have removed the strings and cleaned it up. It does look a lot better clean, certainly a useable Guitar for someone. I will put some new strings on, take some nice photos of it and consider its future.

My young grand nephew has taken up learning to play the Guitar. He has a Strat copy but doesn't have an acoustic so it's future is considered

And for anyone who wants any kind of review, this is a perfectly reasonable, solidly made student level acoustic folk Guitar. If it wasn't I wouldn't give it to my nephew. MY one reservation about giving it to him, and something to bear in mind if planning to purchase, was its a fairly large Dreadnought and might be a bit big for him, (though looking at his older brother I have no doubt he will grow into it). The redburst finish is well done and does add to it's looks (linden wood is not very decorative on its own). Given that it had a few, not very well loved, years on it when I got it, and how well it has survived them, I have no doubt that this will last and be passed on from one aspiring young relative to another to learn on for years to come
