Yeah plenty of new reissued ones available, note they are mostly cutaways....they didn't do that in the '60s. The original models had what they call a "tone bar" which was a brass or bronze bar which went through the body of the guitar and was visible in the sound hole..... I want one of those. Played on in New York and should have bought it there and then....but the divorce would have been costly..... I can just see you in an Elvis Tribute Band.
Bob, funny you should mention this kind of guitar and Elvis. I actually use to play lead guitar in an Elvis impersontor's band way back when. We even did "Clambake", I'm so very sorry to say. But it all was during the "disco" hey day and he got gigs steady during those lean club years. Here's one I just say on ebay...
Clambake Fender Kingman
Whilst any of you are trolling around the guitars for sale sites if you see a 1960's vintage Fender Kingman for sale please let me know I am interested in getting my hands on one and no I am not doing an Elvis impersonation show.
I'm still saving money to buy that, Tacoma built, Guild D50 Bluegrass Special... A few more sacrifice and it will be mine!
I'm selling my D4 (RI made).
Message sent, Ted.
TO THE GROUP: for personal reasons, I am offering my 1973 Guild F-30 FOR SALE. It does show 40 years of wear, nicks scratches, the lot. On the up side it is a sweet playing and sounding guitar. I would not call it collectable. It is a players axe. Original tuners have been replaced with Grover Minis. The nut and a fully compensated saddle have both been replaced and a set up by Matt Petros of Petros Guitars. Frets show wear. Piezo installed with strap pin jack.
Interested? Message me or post. Photos to serious inquires.
A Guild classical on Goodwill:
Currently $131 - 4 days left - $55 shipping...
Bob Crain: I am pretty sure I would be elsewhere when the doc disassembles the Guild. I know a fellow who is capable of the job, in fact, he was the fellow who told me how idiosyncratic it is.
Guild Groupies....just updated my website...check it out news, new photo gallery page, new song vids including a couple of me playing my Guild .... and I know I am not supposed to be putting that up here because it is only a semi acoustic but she's a beaut 60's Starfire model and plays like a dream.
I would think most guitars of that era have unique properties that make neck resets problematic....good repairers are experienced and will likely know the pitfalls. Find someone who has done one the guy that reset my '73 D-28 brought in his own '74 that he had done and I was convinced....the only thing I can say is get it done but close your eyes (it's an ugly sight to see your guitar in pieces) and give them as much time as they need you don't want someone to rush a neck reset.
