The below-mentioned Guild GAD 30R is a comin' my way! :-)

NGD discussion (with the somewhat-traditional lab bench photos) to follow when she gets here...she'll be the "sister" to my recently-acquired GAD F212...

I'll have to put up a somewhat Edward Sparks-esque photo of me holding the 6 and 12-string "twins" his Martin photo... ;-)

I've been thinking about that lately, as a matter of fact. I'd like her to go to a great home. I've been ignoring her and she deserves better. She realistically has less than 10 hours of playing time on her. Took her to a local shop to see about doing some trading and he thought she was brand new. Couldn't offer what she was worth because he would have to resell, etc. I paid $749.00 for her. Message me an offer and we can discuss.

Might she like a new home? ;-)

I have one. GAD-30R Bought brand new from Sweetwater in '11 or '12. Looks like brand new in the tweed case. Beautiful guitar. I just never seem to take it out of it's case.

Kind of looking for a first-generation (pre-2012) Guild GAD-30R - NOT the newer F130-R. Anyone have one they might be willing to part with? ;-)

Fanciful artwork depicting the 2013 Guild GAD M120 I have for sale in the discussion forum above ;-)

Check out these now Guild basses...

Guild Guitars M-85 and GSR M-85 II Basses
The Guild Newark St. Collection marks the return of classic Guild electric favorites from the 1950s and ’60s—once again putting the distinctive Guild styling and voice that helped shape popular music into the hands of today’s guitarists. GSR series guitars are distinctive limited-edition versions of some of Guild guitars’ most sought after and revered models. These exceptional instruments feature special and exotic wood selections and custom appointments not available on standard models, resulting in exciting new guitars that take the Guild legacy to new heights of elegant sound and performance.
The M-85 Bass boasts authentic mid-'60s style with a compact semi-hollow body and big “Bi-Sonic” bass pickup that together create the sonic boom of an instrument twice its size. The single-cutaway body measures 2.75” deep and a mere 13.5” across the lower bout, with an arched spruce top and maple back and sides. The body also features elegant ivory white body binding, black/white purfling, partial center-block bracing and dual finger rests. This distinctive bass also features a 30.75” scale length, bound three-piece mahogany neck with a  vintage-style “soft U” profile, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with 12” radius and pearloid dot inlays, volume and tone controls, combo bridge/tailpiece with rosewood saddles, Grover tuning machines, nickel hardware and cool Jet Black gloss finish.

The compact Aristocrat-style hollowbody in the limited edition run of the GSR M-85 II Bass has a single laminated spruce arched top with parallel tone bar bracing, mahogany back and sides and stately black-and-white binding. The unbound three-piece mahogany-maple-mahogany neck has a comfortable profile and a 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and mother-of-pearl dot inlays.
