Well were there any real Guild's when the brand was owned by Fender? It is somewhat disappointing to see some of the great brands being consumed and downgraded in quality .... but that is the way of the world it seems.

Listen guys. Now Guild is owned by Cordoba. So, I ask you, is there really a Guild any longer? The name is around but just because the name is on a guitar does that mean that there is any linear progression? For example, I also have a bunch of Goyas. Four are from Sweden and the rest have the name but were made by Martin in China. So, because the name is on it is it really the same guitar? Thoughts?

Just put a non-invasive Seymour Duncan SA-1 Acoustic Tube Soundhole Pickup in my D212 NT. Mama Mia that is some spicy meatball. Wow. Put one in my Goya  T-3 also. Easy in and out if the soundhole is big enough. Nice tone. Real Natural.

Thanks FG....lovely to look at thankfully they are on the other side of the world so there is not much danger of me being GAS afflicted. I currently have my eye on a 62 Fender Palomino (love the Fender Electric neck on the D Body) and it is dangerously close to home. Thanks the '91 looks very sweet.

Bob - I am about to feed your GAS - so sorry... ;-)

Anyway, here's a link to 5 Guild 12-strings on g-base:

The most inexpensive one is $895 - a 1991 D-25 made in Westerly, RI:

Have you ever visited Good people there, too - and a For Sale section where one might find a good used Guild 12, if one were so inclined... :-)

I can't even talk about my Guild here as it is only a Don't get me wrong the Guild's I have played recently are nice ... I suppose I am so used to my D28 that I hear everything in comparison to that. I am not one with GAS...probably shouldn't even be allowed on this page because of that ... I only have 2 guitars. Looking at another at the moment and would love to have an old Guild maybe a 12 String.....he says in his dreams.

I stole that from over on the AGF... ;-)
I own a 2011 Guild GAD F212 and a 2010 GAD 30R - while they may not compare directly to USA Guilds, I have found both of these to be keepers - especially all-solid-wood at their price point...
I do hope the NH craftsmen and women will be well taken care of...

In my opinion Guild has it's place amongst the 4 top guitar brands - Guild, Martin, Fender, Gibson....and I hope this is a good move which keeps it in that category! The foreign made Guilds that I have played over the last years do not sound or feel that good to me, the US made ones still do...hopefully Cordoba gets the message quality will always beat quantity when it comes to musical instruments. Nice "logo" FG!

Thinking of all those good people many of us have met at the New Hartford facility.

It's a sad day for the Guild community. Eric
