    On the fence - 1979 Guild D-50 or Eastman E20D-TC

    One reason for the Eastman is the 1 3/4 in nut even it it doesn't quite sound like a Guild.

    New D-40 - finish getting glossy already?

    My 2002 Corona D-40 has a gloss finish. I can see my reflection in it. If I wanted a satin finish I would have bought a Talyor. I am old school, when i started playing in the 60s most guitars had gloss finishes. Enjoy your D-40.

    1969/1970 Guild F30 NT

    Surprized to see such a nice guitar next to an Airline. My 60s Airline was murder on my fretting hand. What a contrast. Do you still play it?

    Orpheum Jumbos

    I started a list on DD Signature models and found 19 DD-6 and 5 DD12s on Reverb and ebay. I don't think they made many of these more than the Orpheum series. Both series were made when Ren was at Guild so they are good.

    Am I the minority these days????? Cutaway vs. Non Cutaway

    It is nice and is now at home with its little brother a DD-6MCE. Did have it in the cart when I bought it? My first cutaway was a GAD-PCE50ATB with Padauk back and sides.

    1990 JF30-12 String Trials

    Doyle Dykes uses GHS Phosphor Bronze 11s on his 12 strings. I asked GHS since they are working on a new string set for him as mentioned on his web site. The 13s should sound fine if you tune down 3 or 4 steps to reduce tension.

    D40 CVM00071

    My 2002 D-40 has the Fender decal. If it is mint I wouldn't sell for less than $1250. The $1000 ones on reverb are only in fair condition. I think the new dealer price was around $1700-1800. Got mine in 2008 for less than $1000 new. Guild sold alot of seconds when the closed Corona which...

    NGD: Doyle Dykes DD6 MCE

    Try GHS Doyle Dykes Signature Series Phosphor Bronze 11 1/2 strings on her. (DD S325). They sound great on mine. DD guitars were under the radar for a while. Picked up mine for less than other comparable Guild models. Sure cure for GAS. I didn't realize the impact of the wider nut until I...

    NGD: Doyle Dykes DD6 MCE

    I think these are great guitars. I loved mine so much I got a DD-12MCE to go with it. Looks like yours has the LB6 pickup. Mine has the Barbara pickup. Wait till you plug it in. It adds a whole new dimension. I play mine unplugged mostly.

    F 512 Maple (Should I buy it?)

    Check out the Guild F-512 videos on Youtube to hear the difference between rosewood and maple. I don't have any rosewood guitars, but I love my DD-12MC. It works great for fingerstyle. I think Guilds have lower action then Martins from the factory. I liked the sound and action of by D-40...

    First post - New M-25 owner

    If you don't want to wait get a ToneRite. You can get a used one on Reverb under $100. I used it on my Guilds that I hadn't played much and they opened up. Each guitar will behave differently. see for test on cheap Epiphone.

    Started fingerpicking 50 years ago and like it best. Now use mostly just a thumb pick. For a 12 string try Earnie Ball Picky Picks. They fit between the pairs. They sound good on my resonator as well. Finger picks do increase the volume and give a different sound than bare fingers.

    Looking for capo recommendations

    I still have a couple Dunlap elastic capos from the 60s. Use Dunlap triger capos mostly with a Kyser 12 string for my 12 strings and they work ok. Dunlap triger has a classical model I use for my GAD-N5.
