    Got my new Lutehole feedback suppressor but...

    My husband is worried about the neoprene foam gasket on my new Lutehole that comes into contact with the nitro finish on my F65-CE. Can anyone weigh in on this?

    Soundhole cover for F65-CE?

    Greetings everyone!!! Since the last time I posted, I have retired and my husband and I have moved to the Phoenix suburbs. Even though I’m on the more or less deserted (hah, no pun intended) west side, I have found a band to play with, and I am in need of a soundhole cover for my F65-CE. Without...

    NGD! F65-CE in blue, direct from Vietnam to New Jersey

    Thanks to Marc Ellis, I am now the very happy owner of this gorgeous blue F65-CE! As many of you undoubtedly know, Marc lives in Vietnam and I don't, so the scariest part of this transaction was the shipping from there to here. I had awful visions of the guitar sitting on a snowy (or boiling)...

    For those of you who own an F65-CE...

    Would someone who owns an F65-CE please post the measurements of the guitar please? Width of lower bout; width of upper bout; length, height of the body, and do you know about how much it weighs in a hardshell case? All of that would be enormously helpful to me. Thanks!! Barbara

    What do you guys think this guitar is? (currently on eBay)

    Sometimes I troll eBay looking for a custom Peregrine, and today I saw this ad for a Guild "1512" (I'm sure the seller means 512): ... 416c1f62e6 Look at the headstock though - not a G-shield... and I'm not sure about that abalone rosette. ??? Barbara

    For Hans, et. al.: Found another F512 w/snowflake inlays

    To Hans et. al., Rick Neeley, of Rickety Music, found my blog about my F-512 and wrote to say that he has one as well. He sent me the following information about it: "My F512 is numbered 68866. The number is hand printed on the label. There is no indication of where the guitar was built. It...

    Found the only pic of me and my F-312 from 1974

    It's the only extant photo of me and my F-312, which was stolen (as many of you know) in 1985 and replaced by my current F-512. There are 2 interesting things about this photo: 1, I didn't remember that the F312 had no fret markers. And 2, why didn't anybody tell me to get rid of those...

    Played a FANTASTIC Connecticut D-55 today

    At Mandolin Brothers today, I played a stunning new D-55 from the Connecticut plant. Boy, that instrument was just first-rate, with that gorgeous Guild sound - beautiful treble end balanced by a resonating low-end. The workmanship looked fine, although I *thought* I noticed a tiny tiny bit of...

    Guild Guitar group on Flickr

    Didn't know where to post this, so here it landed. I'm a little slow on the uptake, you know, but it occurred to me to look for pics of Guilds on Flickr. Ta-da! There's a small group, aptly entitled "Guild Guitars." Post your pics there and blow everybody away with the volume! Pun intended. :-)

    Difference between the F-312 and F-512

    Hey guys, I was reading the post about strings for jgmaute's F-312, and started wondering... what is the difference between the 312 and 512? I had an F-312, made in 1972, stolen from me in 1984. That's when I found my current amazing F-512. But honestly, even though it was so long ago, I can't...

    Met Carlo Greco this past weekend

    I brought my F-512 to Carlo Greco for a lookover/tuneup. What a great experience that was! For all the years I've lived right outside Manhattan, I've never been to "Music Row" on 48th street. Carlo's workshop is above Alex Music, up a steep flight of stairs, and adjacent to a very cool accordion...

    1976 F50 Blond on eBay

    I saw this this morning: ... dZViewItem Didn't all higher-end Guilds have Grover tuners? This guitar is the 6-string equivalent of the F-412, isn't it? Enlighten me, per favore. By the way, thanks much to California, I'm now looking for a Tacoma blond...

    ARRRRGHHHHH! And this ain't pirate talk! They LOST IT!

    The continuing amazing, phenomenally unbelievable story of my F-412 black finish... So UPS picked it up from me and it was delivered to their claims center. They examined it at the claim center. Then they shipped it back to California Vintage Guitar and Amp. And it never got there. It's...
