    Welcome.



    I am reasonably certain that for the electrics the serial number was stamped on the neck when the neck was completed (and then copied to the label when the instrument was being...

    Haven't paid attention since I got mine and have not heard anything about deliberate spec changes or general quality issues.

    I thought mine had some finish issues on the neck but on closer...

    There is also a liability concern. If LTG does not host attachments then LTG has no liability if a post contains a copyright violation or otherwise legally sanctioned material.

    I emphasize the volume because that is the only reason to own one :-) With my belly, the ergonomics of playing it seated are difficult. As a non-cutaway, playing past the 12th fret or so requires...

    Pretty neat. I do not recall anyone reporting on the Westerly Collection basses so I look forward to your input. You will have to live with the knowledge that there (probably) is something louder...

    The damage I observed was caused by installing it and removing it (mechanical, not chemical). Hence my personal prejudice that a soundhole pickup is a lose-lose situation.

    Welcome. Serial dates to 1957. Host the pics somewhere else and link to them here. Not sure what your question really is. Guild only had one factory at the time and there are generally no times...

    Be careful. I've seen several instruments where the sound hole was damaged and/or the rosette destroyed. It won't happen the first use but it is just a Rule that none of the Guilds here get sound...

    Get well.

    You should be especially pleased people were willing and able to fill in for you. A lot of times we think "if I don't personally do it then it won't get done" and it is so nice to find...

    Why is the solution heavier strings on the Yammy and not another Guild? :-) :-)

    When I was a youth I had HO scale racecars and a track. The '71 grommets remind me of the rear tires, in appearance. Because "real" tires are made of rubber I will gravitate to using the word to...

    Wait. You have those things and play bass? :-)

    The B50 has phosphor bronze on it and on a bad day you just look at it and hear finger squelch and other noises. I have been told, however, that...

    Thanks.

    I am reminded of some medieval tuns that have made it into Church hymnals. Sneak a tambourine and maybe a recorder into church and...

    Ok. Maybe the spongy stuff is rubber. Go with felt. It is safe and probably period correct :-)

    Well. Lesson number one. My cell phone does not take good closeups at all. Lesson two. I can't set up decent lighting in ten minutes.

    Conclusion. No pictures from me.

    I pulled out the JS...

    I bought my '67 used. At some point it hung in a rack with the "wrong" material and you can see the damage to the finish. I vote for NCL.

    Given that you can't see the top under the bridge and...

    By visual inspection, my '67 has two felt grommets at the "string ball end" of the bridge. They are around the screw shafts and between the bridge and the body. You can see between them so they are...
