I am in my 50s and just started playing guitar in the last year. No music background of any kind. It's pretty tough with short, thick fingers but I am getting to the point where I can play semi-recognizable tunes. (I intend to start actual lessons in the fall) So, now that I know over three chords and can pick the string I am intending over 50% of the time, I have this issue that I want to buy every guitar I see. I have been able to resist this urge until yesterday when I saw this guitar in a antique store window. I thought it had a nice tone and was intrigued by the maple leaf on the label so I bought the damn thing. It is a Norman B-30 and according to the serial # and the internet it was made in 1976. If anyone knows any history or other interesting tidbits about this model I'd love to hear. I wouldn't mind a ballpark value to see if I overpaid at $200 but I'm most interested in what kind of player would have bought this type of guitar. Just the kind of thing you'd buy your kid for lessons or something a more serious player would purchase? Thanx in advance.
