I have a Guild GAD 25, which i bought about 4 months ago. I  dont know much about guitars, as i have only been playing for 5 month, but the sound that comes out even makes my playing sound good to me. This is one gorgeous instrument

Billy the Kid; Bonnie AND Clyde were nothing in the purloining department. What a find! Man oh man. Congratulations Ted from Ted. As my zayda used to say, "Use it in good health!"

Well, Guild owners group, I am proud to announce to ya'll (however you believe) That by the grace of God I tripped on a 1981 D-40 CNT. Never mind what it took me to acquire it but I did. Found it in a pawn shop. It is excellent condition for it's age and rescued it from a fate worse than death at the hands of some one who likely would not appeicate it as much as I (and the members of this group). And again as with the F-30 I got in November last, I "stole" this for the asking price of $525 including tax and the original hard shell case.

I appreciate dreaming about the "5 figure" guitars. I can see plenty of them as my friend and luthier Bruce Petros' shop is only and hour away. (check out or better yet try one out if you can find a dealer who has some. But I am more thankful for playable finds I can afford.


AND since the last time I did this and didn't attach photos, here they are...

I played this one. Take a look at the inlay work. I don't think there's a fret that's the same. It is HUGE. HUGE. And...made in Philadelphia. Not a Guild but I had to share this with you!

Oh. Friends of mine. One of the salesman told me that Eric Weissberg had been in a few weeks ago and took a look at the Guilds. He played ALL of them and stated emphatically and enthusiastically to anyone in earshot that he LOVED GUILDS!!!! If any of you get to NYC you MUST get over there. It is heaven. Absolute heaven. Call me if you do. We'll go together!!!!!!!!

In Brooklyn, right? Looks like a great store, Ted. If only the web site offered 'smell-o-vision'.




They have a '73 maple F-50 in cabernet finish that caught my eye. What a great guitar. And a '67 F-312 12-string. Sweet.
