Um, I use strings.:nevreness:
Aww heck, since this just got made a sticky, and think he must be busy with a kayak, I'll back him up:
For the first time I can ever remember, somebody who actually was at Guild at the time, Drumbob, finally confirmed recently that he was buying strings for Guild from D'Addario from '79-'81:Ahhhh... now it feels like home.
I bow down to you Al, on achieving the well deserved sticky status, and will be eternally grateful for finally having a reference thread to soothe my anxiety attacks each time I wonder whether or not I'm using the right kinda strings.
I'm sorry to say, I didn't see your post until just now. I visit this forum only occasionally. I worked at Guild in Elizabeth, NJ from '79-81 and handled customer service, artist relations, procurement, R&D, and pretty much everything else Neil Lilien didn't want to do. I ordered strings from D'Addario, dealt with the sales reps, made sales calls to Guild dealers trying to unload overstocked items (and never got one cent in commission), handled dealer and customer problems and issues, and was frequently the whipping boy for mistakes made by others, people like sales manager Ramon Portal.
Your very own sticky! There's one thing off of your bucket list, Al!
