    Kurt had mentioned that all the initial GSR whitewood bodies came from the Donnie Wade project in Tacoma. See: http://letstalkguild.com/ltg/showthr...=1#post1551078
    But I think those were the GSR Starfire I Bass, the GSR Starfire II Bass, the GSR Starfire VI and maybe the GSR T-500.
    I don't know about the GSR X-180, GSR X-150D, GSR X-500D, GSR M-85 II Bass and the GSR M-75 whitewood bodies, I think some or all came from elsewere, not from Tacoma.

    At my part-time Job at a guitar store here in Antwerp, Belgium, where I live, I spent a good hour and a half talking to Cordoba's CEO about a month ago. I was impressed with the guy, very interesting, nice man, very civilized and intelligent. He seemed genuinely interested in my thoughts and observations about Guild guitars too.

    Anyway, one of the many things that came up in conversation was a possible future "Korean whitewood finished in the USA" thing. It's one of the things they seem to be very tentatively thinking of, not any time soon if ever, but they're entertaining the thought among other things. And I was assured that IF it ever happens under Cordoba ownership, there will be full 100% transparency on what was made where, and they would under no circumstance be sold as "made in the USA" period. Which I thought was pretty cool. Carry on.

    My Goya solidbody electric came together via Indonesian wood, Korean electronics & hardware (aside from the unbranded Sperzel tuners) and assembly & finishing by Martin in Nazareth, PA. The guy I bought it from told me there had been a "Made In Indonesia" sticker on the neck that had long ago fallen off. :)
