    Cool! That thing is practically a guitar event unto itself - endless neato details!

    That is one of the coolest guitars I have seen in a "long time", "long time".

    Hey! I have those knobs... Way back in the '90s, before eBay took over from various classified ad sites, I bought some "clear Guild knobs" from a photoless listing. They must've been spare Brian May knobs -- I think I have four or five of them. Never knew what they were and always wondered how/why they got IDed as Guild knobs in the first place. Now I know (and am fairly certain I'll never need them)!

    '66 Starfire XII (sunburst) SOLD
    '71 S-100 (natural) SOLD
    '74 Starfire VI (walnut/mahogany body) TRADED
    '94 X-700 (natural)

    I’m not a Queen nor Brian May fan (no offense intended, to each his own!) but I really enjoyed the review.
    It’s always a good thing to learn more about a rare-bird Guild, and you make it fun, sort of like that one cool teacher you had that made (your worst subject here) interesting. As I’ve said before, I’m always impressed by the length you go to to get the whole story, such as buying and dissecting a spare pickup. Truly above and beyond the call.
    A big plus for me on this review was, a rarity for me, I don’t want one. I won’t be spinning my gears trying to figure out how to scrape up the cash to buy a Red Special.
    Thanks for a fun read.

    Another fine (and fun) review!! I still don't understand Guild's choice of the Kahler trem for this model.
