I am a newcomer to the Guild family : I hadn't paid much attention in recent years to who was playing Guild acoustics as I was more after Martins, Taylors or Gibsons at the time, and luthiers' made guitares too... Till I came across some guitars sold with an important discount in a shop, a few months ago. Makes that are not very famous here...And I got a Guild guitar again : I remembered how good they were (I've had one for a while a long time ago), and jumped on the opportunity...
So now I wonder about artists I may have been listening to, that played Guild guitars, or/and still do...I know that Richie Havens had been playing a D-40, I've seen that Eric Clapton has been advertising for the make some years ago : he'd been pictured with some Jumbo sized guitar, an F-50 or something...But who else ?

You guys here, have probably been discussing these things many times on the forum...But if you don't mind talking a bit more about it, I'll be happy to learn some more...
Thanks

Bernie

Yes good thread : Jack Casady, Mississippi John Hurt, Jerry Garcia, Stephen Stills, Muddy Waters, Linda Ronstadt, Robbie Robertson and Brian Setzer, to quote a few I remember from a quick visit on page 1 and page 49 or 50, that's not bad...Makes me think I've been confusing some Guilds with big hollow-bodies by Gretsch at times...

So, the rule is to buy one an other a coke - or some drinkable thing - when posting a information that has already been given by some one else !?
Well cheers folks, and thanks a lot Chris at AcornHouse - and Hansmoust... :courage:

Just saw Bonnie Raitt in concert again a couple of weeks ago and she was playing both her F50r’s. (one was her old 70’s standby, the other a more recent-vintage) Her guitars sound SO full and lush and very clear!

Oh yes, Bonnie Riatt...I had seen that somewhere, and in the thread that's been mentioned earlier on I think...Forgot to say ! Excellent guitar player with a wonderful touch when she plays slide guitar...In the U.S. girls can play the guitar : here they just show off...:biggrin-new:
Stevie Ray and Paul Simon, that's been a bit unusual though, isn't it ? Same with Tom Petty (Rickenbaker) and Brian May (home-made)...Quite a few others I do not know, things to listen to then...

Thanks you all...

From Ohio to Nederlands (or vice versa), long way to go for a beer still Chris and Hans...

I kinda like this one:



( A Twin Reverb for $426.00 and an F212 lefty for $290.00 for Jimi Hendrix, February 1970)

There's a video of Jorma playing Embryonic Journey on an archbach D25 put there. Put him on the list.

And while we almost always see Joni with Martin - didn´t she have a Guild before that "Martin of her life" ?
