When I was 15 I bought an acoustic guitar and went to a course. It was around 1980. Going to the first lesson I accidentally hit the railing in the stairs and the neck of the guitar was broken, but it was possible to play. It was “only” a crack. More than 40 years later I picked up the guitar and superglued the neck, changed strings. Now it actually sounds OK, don’t have to tune a lot. It will do for now :).
Welcome ,and i wish you a lot of fun, and don`t break anything
Hey Mikael, welcome to the community. Playing guitar is a load of fun, keep at it, it just gets better and better.
What a cool place to be from! Hope to see your beautiful country someday!
Välkommen Mikael. I lived in Malmö for over 7 years and both my children were born there. Loved every minute of our time there. Good luck with your guitar journey!

Hello Mikael, and a warm Welcome to the community .

Hello Mikael, welcome to JustinGuitar and the community too.
Whoops - cracked neck. If it holds and stays in tune it may be okay.
But there again, once you have been learning with Justin for a while and reach a milestone in your progress, you may succumb to GAS and find yourself irresistibly drawn to buying a new guitar anyway!

Bought a new steel string guitar. It is so much easier to play on this one. My repair of the cracked neck was not the best. The strings were too far off from the fretboard. Couldn’t handle the F chord at all. Now, I have at least a chance :).
Hello Mikael and welcome aboard.
That’s great that you kept the guitar all those years and now you’ve been able to repair it.
