    Help needed properly explaining to people why the guild laminate archback is not a bad thing

    I say it is not our burden to educate the knaves, reprobates and wretches..... But if you must, ask them to consider the fact that Guild uses laminated back and sides on the F-412.

    A question about the True American series.

    I had a D-4 True American. It does have the laminated arched back but that is NOT an inferior quality in a Guild. It was a great guitar, they are bargains if you can find a good one.

    Why does my fretboard look like this?

    I read that a while back. Got me looking for a set for camp. Ended up with a nice Lardy set...not top end but nicely weighted and around 40 years old.

    Any option/suggestion to this wall mounted rack? Getting ready for the move. I was relegated to one small room in the new house so I need to conserve space. I like the fact that they can swivel. Not crazy about the color but...

    How I lost 1,000 lbs.

    It was placed there around 1910 +/-. I have a postcard dated 1920 showing it there. Local lore says it came from Wanakena after Rich Lumber left the area. They did leave a number of somewhat smaller houses in place, but this was supposedly the mill Mgrs house which they would disassemble...

    D-55 in action?

    BTW, thanks too for the "approaching middle age" comment. I sort of think of myself as at the upper end of middle age at 49. Take care, West Ha!! That was in 2006! So where do you slot yourself now days????

    How I lost 1,000 lbs.

    Better in person...come on up!! With the exception of the kitchen it is still circa 1860 something. It was a lumber camp Mgrs house that they disassembled and moved onto the island as a joke one winter before departing the denuded area...(all that Adirondack spruce??). I spent the better part...
