Anyone have one? Post here if you do...I know some of our members are actively looking for one (I'm looking your direction Chazmo).

Tee hee hee.... Nothing subliminal at all. Blatant, would be my assessment. :)

Aren't they great, though!? My favorite 6-string on the planet. Probably no small coincidence that my favorite 12-string is its brother, the F-512.

I haven't had this very long...in fact, it still has the strings from the previous owner. Earthtone or something like that 80/20 mediums. I'm bonding with the guitar with these strings...it's an interesting guit. Fits like a glove, love the body shape of Guild's jumbo. Snugs right up. Such a great balance to the F50R too...the sound starts off inside and melts out. I'm digging it quite a bit. The previous owner was a strummer but I've just been doing bare finger and nail stuff. I have no discernible talent but I do love guitars.

Originally I figured that was yer hidden agenda fer takin' the stray, to get a matched pair.
From the same factory even.
Whelps with the same mama from different litters.
Peas from different pods.
Whopsie, feel a song gestating.

I bought mine new in 1979. It's THE most awesome guitar I've ever heard. I already had a 1975 Martin D-18 that was so outstanding in tone and volume that it would literally stop jam sessions at all the bluegrass festivals I went to because everyone wanted to get their hands on it. The Guild beats the Martin in every way--tone, volume---you name it. It ain't the easiest guitar to play because I raised the action a bit to get even more tone/volume, but it still beats anything I've ever heard/played.

Talent, or no, Sixx, you have great taste in Guilds!
