Hi -- how do you like your gad120? My '63 m20 is my favorite guitar to play, and when I decided to get a less expensive knock-around guitar the gad 120 was on the high end, money wise, of what I was looking to spend. I'd kind of settled on an all wood Seagull but I can' together the Guild 120 outta my mind. Please tell me what you think about it - thanks -

Did you get the natural, or the cherry red finish?

Nice Ted - is that the GAD M-120?  I've spent a bit of time with one in a local store - if it had a 1.75" or greater nut, I'd own one by now, too... ;-)

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 - - which is my favorite of the ones I've played.  However, I have yet to play the F-130 or 130R - - 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
