    Need some help with a "New-to-me" DCE-5

    Guildedagain - you are 100% correct. I wasn't considering at all that my cord (which works perfectly well in the electric) would not work in the DCE5. Definitely learned something there... fronobulax - what should I be looking for/fixing with respect to the input jack? I'm inclined to let it...

    Need some help with a "New-to-me" DCE-5

    Update - I took the DCE-5 into my local shop to have the tech take a look. It worked fine at the shop - go figure... Best I can tell the issue was with my cable. Even though the cable works fine with my daughter's electric, it apparently does not work with the DCE-5. I tried an alternate...

    Need some help with a "New-to-me" DCE-5

    Wow - thanks, everyone, for all of the information! As usual, LTG does not disappoint! Nuuska - The cable is fully inserted. Just tried again for good measure. No joy. Interestingly, if I pull the plug out slightly the red light lights up and stays on. With the cable in this position I...

    Need some help with a "New-to-me" DCE-5

    Thanks, adorshki. If by "barn door" you mean the cover where the switches are, it says Guild at the top and Fishman Transducers at the bottom. The red LED does not light up. I tried all of the sliders throughout their full range and could get no output of any kind. Will take a look at the...

    Need some help with a "New-to-me" DCE-5

    Thanks, Guildedagain. To answer your questions: 1) The ad said "Just cosmetic issues with the guitar", which referred to some finish checking. The shop answered all of my additional questions, including sending extensive photos of action, string height, and saddle measurements. The shop stated...

    Need some help with a "New-to-me" DCE-5

    Just picked up a 1999 DCE-5 off of Reverb - bought it as a 16th birthday present for my daughter. Guitar is a great shape, action is great, and it sounds great. However, I can't get the Fishman electronics to work. I put a fresh battery in, but when I plug into the amp there's no sound. I've...

    Getting ready to buy a D-50 - a couple questions

    Great feedback - thanks so much! The guitar is not local so I can't put my hands on it. Relying on the seller for the pics. I got pics of the action at the 12th - E and e are within the specs you quoted Gard Man. I've decided to get it. Hopefully the pics are legit...

    Getting ready to buy a D-50 - a couple questions

    OK so here's a photo of a straight edge sitting on the fretboard running over to the bridge/saddle. Seems that the geometry is off a bit. I don't know enough about this to know if this is in neck reset territory or not - would love to hear others' opinions on the matter.

    Getting ready to buy a D-50 - a couple questions

    This forum is awesome - thanks, everyone for the feedback! Frono - the serial is, indeed, from 1975. I misread the Guild SN list when I looked it up earlier. Rich/Frono - Thanks for the advice. It's a remote transaction so I'm rolling the dice so to speak on the structural concerns. I'm...

    Getting ready to buy a D-50 - a couple questions

    I have a line on well-used D-50NT. It's a player with pick wear around the bottom of the sound hole, some cracking in the binding near the neck, some finish checking and some buckle rash. Somebody really liked this guitar and played it every day for a long time... Serial number lookup (SN...

    WTB Looking for F20 or M20

    Looking for F20 or M20 for my 14 year old daughter. She's really progressed with her playing, and is ready to graduate from her Fender 3/4 sized starter guitar. She loves playing my D4, but she's very small so it's difficult for her to play. The F20/M20 is a great size for her, and being a...

    Typical costs for luthier services

    Hi all, Reading through many of the posts here, and considering the possible acquisition of a Guild in need of some work, got me interested in typical costs for general luthier services. I know that pricing a service such as this is very subjective, and may vary widely based on location...

    Guild parlor guitars

    Looking for a list of various model parlor guitars Guild has produced over the years. My daughter (11) has just started playing. She's small and has a lot difficulty with the size of my D4. I shopped around for 3/4 size acoustics before Christmas, and after trying many including Martin...

    Any idea what model this is?

    This popped up on nearby CL - no info at all on model, year, SN etc. Any idea what model it is, what year it might be etc.? Thanks! The pics in the ad are very poor (phone) quality, and none give a direct view of the SN label, so I can't even tell what label style this thing has (other than...

    Dating a Guild D4-NT Hi all, my first post to this forum. I have a Guild D4-NT and I'm trying to get some info on date of manufacture. I have looked the serial number up in the Guild serial number chart, but my serial number is not listed for Guild D4-NT's...
