Its very Silvertone-ish

I would definitely spend a buck on this.

Which dollar store did you get it from? Dollar tree, just a buck...

Funny thing is I kinda like the headstock...

11” scale length, the strings hold tension, I played a few ditties, next to stretch the scale to 24” and add new strings

Hunh! I would be tempted. How was it like it came?

That's dollar store gold my man. It looks pretty good as is but I'm sure it will turn out to be something awesome.
