    In addition to those already mentioned, here are some more FAQs: How much does it weigh? How many strings does it have? Do you tune it yourself/restring it yourself? How old were you when you started playing/how long have you been playing? Where are they made? Is it difficult to play? Why are the strings different colors? AND– Can I try it? (No.)
