Gentle Wood

I have a guitar made of balsa wood. I have to play it gently because too much of a chord could snap the guitar in two.

Why would I buy something so fragile?

I like that I can hold it with one finger. It reminds me of model airplanes I used to make when I was a kid. My brother-in-law owns the company and no had bought one yet.

Another helpful point is birds are averse to it. Previously a blue-jay built a home in my Gretsch New Yorker and laid eggs. It muffled the sound and made it unpleasant to play. Though it was nice to hear the baby birds tweet along.
