    Please use good head phones !!!

    I just got with the second saddle adjust and decided to just record something .

    Lots talking up front and heavy breathing chest congestion along with bad speaking skills and incomplete if wrong information lol

    Oh and lousy playing . No Eq or Compression with just a tad of reverb . She’s a bright sounding guitar and I don’t thing she’s been broke in yet .

    Ok did the last saddle adjust much nicer now except now it needs fret leveling lol but is pretty good .

    So wait , did you listen to the track or stop at the picture ? Lol

    It took 3 guitars to get the one all new . Heavy poly killed its volume but it was a great playing and rounding guitar other wise all solid wood Sitka hog stereo pickup which was awesome .

    It’s a great guitar gor the bucks but the AJ500 masterbilt I played sounded better possible lighter finish . I’m interested in because of the ploy for a camp fire guitar :)

    Ray,
    Nice job on the "rebuild". Very nice indeed! I am amazed at the offset at the end of the fretboard however. I cannot say I have never seen one like that before but I certainly never noticed one to that extreme. To the group, has anyone ever noted that characteristic on any model or family (Guild or otherwise?)? In any case, it appears that your skills at making the fix are well ahead of many of us I am sure. Perhaps that golden opportunity you were wishing for in the past is looking at you......

    To go with the side veer, before I acquired my D150 I was looking for the rosewood kin to your DR500 but never found one. The first good guitar I ever got to play was an Epiphone. It belonged to a friend I worked with and I have no clue as to the model, but it beat the pants off the flat wide necked, yellow CDX plywood topped Sears (or Wards) special that I possessed at the time. .... but I date myself. That was back in 1969 or 1970. As I recall it played very well but compared to mine, the neck was about half as wide! and where was that playing going on you asked....... by the campfire of course!!

    I think it was due to the highly unusual (for Guild) bolt on neck, and possibly why the instrument was sent to MIRC, who specialized in refurbishing manufacturer "B stock".
    But that neck mounting design was problematic at best, and first used on those "Contemporary Series" guitars.
    It's entirely possible Guild decided to stop using it because of the problems.
    We just don't know and Fender never talked.
    They carried other Tacoma design innovations over to New Hartford, but not that one.

    Ray cut his Contemporary teeth on another model, also an "MIRC piece", and with this second job I sincerely believe he's probably the most expert member here on these guitars, at least on the vagaries of the neck joint, with the possible exception of Fixit.
    Not sure if he'd ever handled one of these prior to the first one Ray sent to him, though.
    So even though I whacked him about build details of the line a while back, he's back up to "Official Forum Contemporary Series Expert" in my book.
    It's a tough job and he deserves all the punishment he'll get...
    Ray, sincerely, my hat's off to ya!
    I wish I had the space and tools to attempt such efforts.
    You may actually be on to something here, the quality of workmanship I see in the photos would satisfy me and I'm one picky SOB myself.
    Maybe that's what it takes.
