Thread: NGD 1968 Guild M-20

    NGD 1968 Guild M-20

    Thanks to AcornHouse....I'm a real happy guy today. I'm thrilled with this purchase and have already dropped the guitar at the Authorized Martin Guitar Service Center for a (1) neck reset (2) bridge re-glue due to very slight lifting (3) new bone saddle (4) new bone nut (5) the bridge plate is very slightly splintering and will be 'capped' with a very small hard maple veneer taken from an antique piano (6) and stabilization of a barely noticeable but apparent bottom crack across the strap pin. It is a long list I s'pose...but this M-20 is in otherwise excellent cosmetic condition. It has some surface marks from picks which did not scratch/mar the wood but which can be seen, it has slight shrinkage of head stock overlay, superb fret and braz fingerboard condition, and a real pretty slab of hog throughout. The luthier says that the bridge (and fretboard) are braz and bridge does not require replacement for the repairs. Luthier was shocked at the age/condition and seemed excited to work on it....though not half as eager as me! Thanks again AcornHouse....I so appreciate your early morning post of this one.

    So there ya go....I'm saving the lives of old guitars one Guild at a time folks. PS...Seller said 1965....but Hans Moust reports 1968.

    I took some photos for you all today....just because: https://www.flickr.com/photos/511421.../shares/W6s505

    Sweeet! No windmills! You gotta' play 'small'. Enjoy yours. It's one of the guitars I miss owning.

    There. I was gracious. Now I'm jealous and self-loathing.
