I bought him a smaller nice Oscar Schmidt to pluck on when the power goes out and he can't fire up his Tele. Also been thinking of replacing the tuners on this with some locking type. I bought my Madiera A-75 new in the 1970's from Royal Music in Brooklyn, NY for about 5.
The A-75 is a Dreadnaught-style with spruce laminate top and rosewood sides and back.
