Thread: Help... Did Guild make these?

  1. #11
    All I know is that Guild and Goya were both under the ownership of Avnet at this time (mid 60's) I was just guessing there might be a connection ? My only other guess is Hagstrom as there was a Goya connection there as well at one point. Whoever made it took pride in their work I would say.

    Lots of features on that amp!
    Fuzz, Expander, Reverb and Tremelo. Curious what "Expander" function is?!

    Looking at the catalog, it might be a treble boost function

    (amps - I need a "99" & "50")

    The seller wasn't sure (?) but it looks to me to be 2-6l6 and 5-12ax7's

    Actually, that's no PCB. It looks like the traces were drawn with solder by hand. Too cool. How's it sound?
    That's what early pcbs looked like. Huge traces with a lot of solder.

    Confirmed the tube lay out as 2-6l6, 2-12au7 and 3-12ax7. Also found some info on a vintage Hilgen site that showed some very similar looking construction methods. Piggyback guitar and bass models with hinging heads, inked on serial numbers and wiring lay outs that looked virtually identical. There was even mention of a model where the mic input was marked "Mike" like the Goya.

    I have peeked into enough Guild Amp Guts(tm), that l am sure that it's not a Guild amp. If Guild made amps for another company, they would have rebadged something already in production. I have a Sonola accordion amp that is nothing other than a rebadged 100-J. Guild pc boards were also more refined.

    It's not really built like a Hilgen, either. I think you should just be happy that you have a cool, unique amp.
