    Considering that is just a phone recording and the space is totally open so there is no room reverb to help -- that guitar sounds great! Congrats! Sometimes the mutt you take home from the pound ends up being the best dog you ever know.

    i really been digging the D35. such a nice warm, resonant and crisp sound, just been fingerpicking it. and it is heavier than the Br, for sure, been noticing that too. neck is bigger too. the Br neck is more like a strat neck shape. thin and narrow. D35 neck is rounder. Lots of deviation I gather at Guild from 1971-1973 :). Of course, this D35 has no label inside, sticker fill out long ago. like the Br. just the Guild stamp. and i like the tuners say Guild on them, well, the 5 :)

    Isn't that "Button" on the bridge a Hot Dot pickup? Have you tried to plug it in?

    yeah, pup totally dead. i actually took the pup out on saturday night. as well, a small piece of the soundhole wood fell off, the outer ring had been worn so badly due to whoever and however the dude strummed it over the years. i have never witnessed that level of wear around a soundhole before. my wife wood-glued the weaker part to the stronger as i use a "woody" soundhole pickup and i need it to fit sung. if not for that, i would get a woodworking friend to just cut out the soundhole edge rim ala tony rice. :) fortunately that is not the case here. I was also able to find a great string action height by slowly working the TR. I am going to leave the Jalopy as is and just play it. I just love the sound and where it is right now. I do not want to mess with anything till like something just falls off it that is critical to structure or playability. till that day, she is as she is. they were totally made to be played. the fundamental foundation and function of old Westlerly Guild dreads is uncanny. another guitar would have imploded by now.
