    Welcome to LTG! There was a time where the place of manufacture wasn't noted on the inside label, and it was around this time. The label should look like this:

    Are you sure it's not an F212XL? Guild 12ers came in three sizes back then: F112 (F30 body, 15" lower bout), "regular" F212 (F40 body, 16" lower bout), and F212XL/F412/F512 (jumbo body, 17" lower...

    Eric, FWIW, I would absolutely ship that guitar to Tom. Driving to Florida (ever again) is a total non-starter for me. I have shipped all over the world, and am confident that I would have no problem...

    That's my friend Brad Tucker. He's no longer playing with my cousin, and is back in Martha's Vineyard making insane high end furniture. Very talented guy, and a killer upright bass player too.

    Excellent!

    <shameless plug> My cousin Woody Pines does a fair (if a bit faster) version of this song, too.

    OK, I guess that makes seven.

    This one is mine, Ralf. I guess that makes six others, including Kim's and Mavuser's, which wasn't "official". I think that one from Matt's Gear Bazaar might have been a NH employee "find" as well.

    Very true. I only know of three GSR M85IIs out there, yours, mine, and Kim's. There are also five or six that came back with broken headstocks that were damaged in shipping, and Kim asked if mine was...

    He didn't, but I got the impression that whoever was making them wasn't happy with the deal he had with fender at the time, hence the short supply of pickups. I still don't have any reason to believe...

    Agreed! My F50ce sounds better than any of the dozen or so jumbo maple Gibsons I’ve played, and it’s a lot prettier too. I could never relate to the mustache bridge, and all the attendant bling on...

    I got to see him on a double bill with Roy Book Binder, and I'm glad I did! I loved the announcement by the family on his website. Leon would have approved:

    Congratulations Dave! I think the 12 fret Orpheums are considered to be “000” because they’re short scale (using the Martin convention). I had a rosewood model pass through here on its way to...

    No Affirmed was at Belmont Park from the spring of 1979, until he retired that fall. Remember that Laz Barrera (his trainer, and another Cuban like frank Martin) was primarily based in California,...

    Good thing you got the dolly! I used to have a Fender Bandmaster cab that was cut out for 15s, and put two EV SRO speakers in it. It weighed well over 100 pounds, and one night (at the end of the gig...

    There's nothing quite like a good round shoulder Gibson. I love my WM45. It probably has the best neck of any of mine, and it's my only short scale as well. I often think of selling it because I...

    I remember Ren Ferguson telling me at LMG3 "Guitar Center is not where you want to buy a Gibson guitar" after I said something similar to him. He would have certainly known, too.
