Thanks for the info!The guilds easliy hold there own . In this vid the Guild is warmer and more balanced even with the lowend muting or chunking as I would call it
With the Yamaha over all brighter or thinner sound depending on inturputation once the lowend muting is taking place with the Yamaha it's lowend seems to drone a dull under tone .
That could easily be the opposite if you bought both guitars and did the same comparison.
If you buy online you'll never know what said differeances will be unless both are in hand .
Yamaha make great quality guitars but it comes down to tone or what your ear likes best
I'd take a beat up trash bound cracked up guitar over anything new if it had " The Tone "
A friend bought a alveraze Cedar top rosewood back and sides 1,200 sell price new but it was beat up , chunks out of the top and all . She's a bluegrasser she bought for 350 .
I have to say she scored and I was very impressed with it . Thing is are they all that good tone wise ?
Do there ya go lol hope this helps
Yes, ALL Guild's GAD guitars and the "Westerly Collection' guitars are MIC.I believe these D-150s are made in China, so I was wondering about the quality and craftsmanship. I have no at all been impressed with Chinese guitars, but people say they're on the rise with their builds.
Your observation is in line with just about everybody's who've given the instruments an open minded listen: that they represent a VERY good value in price-to-quality.Personally American and Japanese are the only I find making quality instruments.
BUT, in this video, it did sound really good to my ear.
"J" I think you're gonna have to look at at the D55 which is just beginning to hitting production, don't know if they've even shipped any yet.What's the cheapest USA guild currently being offered with an Ebony board?
