Pics and Price?
I've heard generally comments that claim the current "modern" strings generally are brighter in sound across the ranges, low, mid and high; such as the phosphor bronze or bronze examples currently...
Really sweet! Love the looks, and can well imagine how she sounds. Why don't you share a tune with us?
Thanks for the quick reply!
I emailed specs for my F-48, which is incomplete on the Westerly Guild Guitars website, but there's been no response. Is the site still updated?
Westchester County? My sister lives in Pound Ridge. Anywhere near? When I visit her, I'd love to see your collection!
Really enjoyed your music, and, of course, gazing at your DV-72...both a work of art!
Hans emailed me saying that by 2001 the practice of placing the date stamp on the neck block had been discontinued.
Hans, in his usual style, answered an email from me about the DV-52. Mine was made in 2001. Where would we be without Hans!:peaceful:
I have a beautifully preserved, great sounding DV-52, and I can't get a clear determination on its date...the available charts from Guild and the Westerly Guild Guitars website don't show my DV-52's...
Welcome from all of us! I have a '13 F-412 (New Hartford) and can't get my hands on it enough. The lows, mids and highs are equally resounding and sustaining. Projection into an audience is awesome...
Back when I was in college (Beloit) in the late 60s, Joni was scheduled to appear in concert. She cancelled at the last moment. We were told that was not unusual for her. Anyone else have that...
Good detective work GardMan!
Here's a cool video of Ryley Walker explaining how he's manged to set up his acoustic with stereo sound. I believe he's playing a D-40....
Thanks for all the comments, advice and support from LTG-ers. It means a lot to me.
Adorski and Westerly Wood,
Many thanks for your opinions and encouragement. Carter also sent three pics of the case, a recent TKL in like new condition. I'm taking the plunge. My 1974 f-48, which...
Carter Vintage sent me two pics each of the neck/heel joint and the bridge. They did a really nice job, I must say.
Carter Vintage is using the number 1,400. Several F-47s comparable in age and condition are going for around 1400 -- 1500. So, I would say Carter is being reasonably business like with me.
Chazmo, thanks for your advice. Actually, a shop like Carter Vintage Guitars doesn't swap guitars. They offer 80% of its market value and put it towards the wanted axe's asking price.
Thanks for the advice and ideas. I have thought of asking for more pics, which I'll do today. I like the F-48, which I have recently acquired, for several reasons. One, it's a hog, not maple,...
I have two six stringers: F-48 and DV-52, plus the F-412, which is maple. The 212xl hog would complement the F-412.
My hog deal is with Carter Vintage Guitars. Their repair staff have done the neck reset, bridge re-glue and fret dressing. What do you think?
You don't know the president of our house!
Thanks TX. I value your opinion. One major challenge I have is that our house rule (wife influenced) is that I should not go beyond 4 guitars. So, I have to move one of mine out, and the F-47 is less...
Thanks for your thoughts. Here's my reaction. I am a 12 string player, and searching for a nice vintage hog to complement the maple F 412. So, that's my thinking on acquiring a F 212xl. Right, now...
