NGD! ‘72 Guild F-50

Haven’t received it yet, not even seen it IRL. Been looking for a jumbo, either a J-200 or a F-50. This showed up on the marked a couple of days ago and had to respond quickly to get it. According to the seller it needs a neck reset (and judging by the pictures it should be refreted as well). Must have been used a lot as it has a lot of wear, but then it hopefully means that it is a great guitar.

Edit! Photobucket is a PITA.

Good luck on your incoming jumbo.

Try imgur for your photos. Free and easy.
I have uploaded my photos on imgur. Can someone please tell me how to download them to LTG?
many thanks and Merry Xmas to all!

I would worry about the cracks on the top on both sides of the neck. I'd guess the neck block has moved and will need to be re-positioned.

Here’s my point of view, iPad, Safari and Imgur app.

I know, therefore the need for neck reset I guess. A couple more days and I will pick it up and see it for my self. Might be worse than the pictures show, but could be better as well.

I'm thinking you want to "copy image location," not "copy link." You should get this option if you right-click on the image itself. Then click on that picture icon to open a little box to paste the image location into.

Congratulations on the F50! I hope the repair needs are minimal ( aside from the reset of course ) and she brings you years of good playing.

So! Picked up the F-50 about a hour ago. The overall condition is as expected. It needs a neck reset, though it plays surpisingly fine as is. Sounds fantastic, even with what I suspect is a 0.11-set of Elixir, and it's amazingly lightweighted compared to my F-412.









From this point of view it almost looks like a square neck... The action isn't THAT HIGH!

Because we need more pictures.

Guitar got a neck reset and new frets six months ago or so.
This is perhaps the most pleasing piece of instrument I’ve ever had. It’s big, bold and beefy. Sounds amazing. It’s great for travis-picking, nice for leads and excellent if you dig in some straight forward strumming. The sound is full and even across the spectrum.

Nice job.

You've given that guitar a good home.

I really like the back of that guitar

That's a good one, u can tell just looking at it.

Rarely do I ever lust over Maple but this one would convince me otherwise.

Uh oh, another bucket list guitar.

But, I have to many dreads, so there's a solution in sight ;)

But seriously, that's a beautiful old Guild rejuvenated, money so well spent.

Remember that, when you're up to yr @$$ in guitars and tripping over the cases, all money well spent ;)))

Can you say that about much of anything else you spend money on?
