    A levitating ship

    Physics. More often quoted these days as "Science". Not the same but close enough! Usually a better answer than jumping to the paranormal! But then you would have to appreciate how much you don't know which is much harder than claiming what you do know. (I find my EE education more and more...

    Buddy Guy and the Green SF4

    Starfire 4 and 5 getting rotated around my home quite a lot these past few weeks also. I'm starting to come to the POV that hard stops tail pieces and Guildsby models are my preference over the the "harp" models. Can't put my finger on it but it may be due to the symphetic string vibration on...

    NGD S-100

    Having been raised on Guild guitars I find many Gibson's to be a "stretch" when playing with the position of the neck and frets being extended off of the body. The SG, 335 and most notably the reverse Firebird "Johnny Winters" type model have that feature. I don't remember the neck heavy aspect...

    You think we will ever see a Newark Street S-300?

    If I recall correctly...didn't someone on LTG mention receiving an inquiry from Cordoba/Guild about the potential interest of a reissued S300? M

    Proper bridge on a 1965 Starfire II

    Actually that is the wrong bridge! That bridge is designed to pivot with the Hagstrom trem. You want the bridge with a through-hole on each side of the bridge. M

    NGD - S65D

    S70? Didn't know GAD had a S-70 up for review. The two 'hog S70's I messed with were wired up differently. The tobacco burst one had some issues with the pickguard so I repaired it and then modified the wiring a bit more from stock. I don't have the little instruction flyer that came with new...

    NGD - S65D

    Series/parallel...thats interesting. The humbuckers two bobbins wired in series would act like a normal humbucker, provided the magnets on each bobbin are reversed from each other. The parallel switch position would be like when you have a two pickup single coil guitar with the selector switch...

    NGD - S65D

    Hey GAD is it the mahogany body that augments the tone of the bridge SD pickup? Just curious. It's been years since I had a hog S300D as I have the ash models. But I really like the tone of the mahogany S70. M

    Tiger Woods in rollover car accident, sustained multiple leg injuries...

    On Sunday, the son of a guy who I went to grade school with from a little coal region town of 2000 peoplein NE PA won the Genesis PGA tour at Rivera. Max Homa, son of John Homa from Nesquehoning, PA went into the 18th tied and pulled it off! Tiger Wood presented the Rivera Trophy to 30 year old...

    Guild QC Manager Pics

    I just a received a SF1 DC in Transparent Red with mahogany. Wow! The hog stripe and finish on this guitar is fantastic. The other SF1's that I purchased were painted so I didn't expect the wood on this guitar to look very impressive but I was wrong. Got it from GC with a 15% discount and free...

    Let's talk about S-250's & S-25's

    And Guild being a company of exceptions... M started out as smaller archtop like M75 Aristocrat to compete with the newly released Les Paul. So M may have referenced Minature. That nomenclature made sense up until 1972/1973 when the solid body M-75 came out. Guild could have redesignated the...

    Let's talk about S-250's & S-25's

    I definitely like the unbound S250 shape and I also perfer the 4-knobs over 3. For looks the bound models look cool and the 3 knobs add to that look but as a player the contoured unbound S-250 and M80 are the way to go. M
