Hi all--heres a quick question for those of you who are lucky enough to own a
Guild dread with mahogany b & s: 80/20, or pbs?
last couple sets of pbs-lt ga that ive put on my DV6 have sounded to my ear very bright, almost tinny, & im looking for more depth & a richer tone. almost bassier.
would it be the brand, the composition, the guage, or any or all the above?
How well do you like yours? It's hard to get info on them. One account I read said that this model is laminate back and sides, another that it's solid mahagony.
Just found a 1973 Guild F30-NT for sale on my local Craigslist. I have a Guild Dread and think I might like having a smaller guitar as well. Any opinions on this year and model? Also, the price -- seller is asking $1500--
Hey Ted. Look up the specs here: http://westerlyguildguitars.com/guitars/dce-1hr.html
Altho note that this is not official Guild info and I have found some errors on models I have owned...
Hi everyone. I'm out of town and away from my DCE-1. A friend asked me the specs and I can't find them anywhere on the web. Anyone out there have them?? Thanks.
Hello y'all. Sorry to intrude with the shameless hokking of my Ebay sale, but I was waiting for the mention of Hoboken (thanks Ted) for the proper segway. http://www.ebay.com/itm/281074970147?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&...In case anyone out there is looking.
Anybody have or have played a GAD M-120. It is the reissue (Chinese that is) of the first guitar I bought for myself, used from a friend in'67 or '68. Wish I had not traded it away. For pure nostalgia I am thinking of getting one.
Hi...NEED a little input, How much do you guys think an XL 212 from Hoboken would be worth??? Thanks
Brand new model Guild 12...
Guild G-312 CE Standard
GUILD HAS LONG BEEN FAMOUS for making great 12-string guitars, and “majestic” is a good word to describe the G-312 CE. This big acoustic-electric dreadnought features solid-wood construction with red spruce bracing under a Sitka spruce top. The satin-ﬁnished neck supports 20 care- fully ﬁnished frets on a rosewood ’board that wears dot position markers and a polished bone nut. Other items made from bone include the bridge pins and compensated saddle. The lacquer-ﬁnished guitar’s cosmetics include black/ivoroid binding, a multi-ring rosette, an intricate wood back stripe, and an inlaid pearl “Guild” logo on the large headstock. The workman- ship has the handcrafted appeal of every- thing being painstakingly done to yield an heirloom-grade instrument that will only get more soulful as the years go by. The G-312 CE tuned up easily, which is very welcome with so many strings to adjust, and the playability was satisfying right out of the box.
The D-TAR electronics integrate seamlessly into the G-312, and you have to look carefully to detect a set of Volume and Tone controls that lurk inside the upper edge of the soundhole. The tones though our test amps and P.A. were warm and open, and little EQ adjusting was needed to get natural, organic sounds that were free of plasticy piezo transients. Even when strumming hard, the G-312 CE maintained an evenness that made it easy to forget that ampliﬁcation was even involved. You deﬁnitely pay for what you get there, but G-312 CE blends classic craftsmanship and cutting-edge electronics in a package that truly bears homage to the fine flat-top 12s that Guild has long been known for.
