There are some things that can be a lifesaver, and it may seem a bit vain to include a mirror in that category, but a mirror can save you from making a huge mistake.
I am definitely not talking about making sure your hair is in the right place.
Including a guitar inspection mirror is something that every #guitargeek should consider adding to their toolbox as it can be a fantastic negotiating tool. I know this seems weird but hang in there with me.
Whenever you buy or consider purchasing a used guitar having a mirror on hand specifically made for guitar inspection is a lifesaver. You can look inside to check for repairs that may have been done, find cracked or loose braces, or even inspect the bridge plate for overall health.
Who knows what problems are lurking under the top of a used guitar… well you will know for sure with a guitar inspection mirror.
