If this lady wants to sell you a guitar, then I suggest you buy it. Her name is Joni and she would never sell you anything but an excellent guitar. She might even sing you a song she wrote. Or show you the many ways that she tunes her guitars. She is VERY talented.

If this lady offers to sell you a guitar, I suggest you say no. She has been dead for hundreds of years, and her guitar is out of style.
