I went out to empty the trash and found this in the trash can.
Nina, the tenant upstairs, the typical welfare mom, has several young kids and cannot afford a terrible lot. She threw this guitar away after someone put steel strings on a guitar built for nylon strings, and then over tightend the strings. This snapped two dowels holing the neck into the block and seperated the back from the sides. Apparently, the guitar had had a loose neck for a while because the tongue of the fretboard is also warped.
You can see from the clamp, I am in the process of repairing the guitar. When it is done, I will return put the correct strings on it and give it back to Nina for her children. They do not know that I retrieved it from the trash can. I think it will be a nice surprise.
