    I had no clue that Guild made the F30 in so many different body sizes. Add in the different scale lengths and nut widths and it becomes even more fun.

That is probably the major reason I got so good at finding most of the issues in photos before the purchase was made. It is a learning experience and the best thing you can do is make sure whatever you purchase has a ironclad return policy. Best of luck in your search and I hope you find the one you are looking for.

    Thanks Tx means a lot , I really wanted this one just for curiosity sake , curiosity cured haha

    Last night I remembered the link to Guitar center in a thread in FS/FT about the D16 I was curious about that and I was giving it some thought then I read it has a hole in the back . Curiosity cured again haha .

    Now Al is asking about CO -1 and 2s lol

    Not necessarily. If you're carful and patient, you can get a Bourgeois for about the same price as a nice Guild. I bought my Slope D from what turned out to be an idiot of eBay for just a little over $1500. It arrived with an unprepared top crack, and a pretty shallow neck angle, but I had that all sorted for about $275, bringing my total investment to less than $1800. You can easily spend that on a used D55 or F512. And none of them sound like or have a top like mine!

    I think you mean Rainsong, and I've owned a couple of them, too. None right at the moment though.

    For guitars I want as keepers NH built is tops on the list any others unless a rarity in tone is a perk the others just a curiosity and learning curve .

    Yeah but if you pay a lot of money and it takes a l-o-o-ng time then you feel like you really got your money's worth.

    You'll never be disappointed with a Guild, then.

    Guilds're like potato chips, no 2 are exactly the same.

    I've always been partial to Dana's original snakehead headstock. That's a good looking guitar you have there.

    I've been down that road with my D50 Al. Remember when it took Fender in Nashville over 10 months to complete the neck reset back in 2010? At least they felt bad for me, and covered the whole thing under warrantee!
