  5. Not so hot on the Korean Starfire VI and thinking of the x-175B

    I got the Starfire VI about a year ago. I think its stunningly beautiful and probably bought it because of looks and the desire to own a bit of history even if it was an imitation of the original. I...

    Yes, I would have preferred the DTAR system as well because I'm familiar with it, but it's not as easy to get and more expensive north of the border.

    Actually, maybe you misinterpreted, because I don't have to ask, but it's part of the joy of being part of this lovely community that I can ask fellow Guild lovers where they come down on questions...
  8. Do it Yourself or Get a Luthier to Install Aftermarket Sound?

    By far, the musical instrument love of my life is my D-55 which I usually play unamplified. Occasionally though I play along to louder music and want to hear myself and had nothing but an electric...

  12. Would an F50 Standard sound any different from higher end F50's

    Good day folks.

    Would a maple backed F50 Standard sound any different from higher end F50's with maple back and sides? Seems there is a difference in bling which makes one more attractive to the...
