I have a set of brass pins that I bought and really haven't used them yet! Thanks Kate.
I love mine -- named him Woody! I wanted a slightly brighter sound, so I had brass pins put in. It's a great guitar that outclasses everything in its price range and above. Congrats!
Look what I just bought myself.
Hi Florida Gull, my Guild says D-150NAT GAD - 58972.
My other acoustic is a Blueridge BR-70, both made in China and both excellent guitars for the money. I have always been a blue collar guy and could never spend the big bucks like some guys do, that's why I appreciate these guitar so much. They are helping me enjoy my retirement. PTL
IMHO, the quality of the Guild GAD series, Walden guitars, and Eastman guitars are all very high for the price you pay and a Chinese-made instrument... :-)
Ron - is your Guild a GAD D-150?
The GAD series (all-solid-wood, Chinese made) are really nice - I've played a 12 string or 2, a dread, and the M-120 - http://www.guildguitars.com/instruments/details/?partno=3818100821 - which is my favorite of the ones I've played. However, I have yet to play the F-130 or 130R - http://www.guildguitars.com/instruments/details/?partno=3810210821 - http://www.guildguitars.com/instruments/details/?partno=3810310821 - both have a 1 3/4" nut width - I might already have captured an M-120 if it wasn't 1 11/16" at the nut... ;-)
I am not sure exactly what type of Guilds these were one got picked up for $150 and the other $300 by 2 different guys. I played one of them but didn't really inspect it...suspect they were both Chinese made but the one I played was really smooth and sounded great full dreadnaught no cut away, the other is a cut away and the guy plays it on stage and it sounds great. Unfortunately I am not allowed to talk about my Guild here because it is only a semi-acoustic .... '62 Starfire .... red....don't tell anybody, there are some photos on my website www.bobcrain.com.au.
Thanks Bob, I have owned a couple of Taylor's but they just didn't do it for me but when I strummed the D-150 I was honestly amazed by the sound and the action right off the wall. The owner did mention that he does adjust his guitars if need be but not this one. I have always been a huge Dreadnought fan ever since I first saw Hank Williams Martin on an album cover a few short years ago. (50)
Congratulations Ron....lately I have heard of 2 (now 3) people getting incredible deals on Guilds both from closing down sales....always pays to keep your eyes open in the guitar shop. I have never been terribly impressed with Taylors lots of people swear by them and maybe I have just never played a good one but they don't feel or sound good to me.
Ron,I still have my 74' D-25. Its in semi retirement. Always lookin for a good deal though. I'm sure you'll enjoy many years on your D150. All my favorite guitars started with that same enthusiasm.
