I'm hopeful you can confirm the year made and build location for my JF55-NT. THE S# is AJ550819. Here is a pic of the label. Many thanks, PaulGeb

Hello Paul,

Welcome! Your Guild JF55-NT was completed during the year 1998 in Westerly, RI. However it is not a 'Westerly Collection' guitar; those are not U.S.-made instruments.

Sincerely,

Hans Moust

Hello, I have a guild s 100 polara cherry red with the serial KSG1200514 from what I could discover was manufactured in 2012 in Korea by SPG, but I did not find more information, could you give me some more information, if you have something or any different material to those who manufacture today. I bought it second hand from a friend and he also bought it second hand and could not tell me anything else. Thanks and best regards !!

Actually, would some kind of Guild wiki be useful? Serial number info, etc, would make sense there. I could arrange that, even with a custom URL.

You need to talk with @SFIV1967 who would almost certainly be the best source and curator of this kind of data.

You should know that the current owner of LTG, @GAD, has the skills and resources to host just about anything LTG wants. There is a lot of agreement that a Guild wiki would be a good thing and it has been discussed for at least a decade. So far no one has had the time and energy to organize the wiki and make guidelines so folks know what belongs on this site and what belongs on the wiki. It would be wonderful if you were the one with the vision, time and energy.

I just don't see that another webpage would be helpful...especially that most known info is already on LTG. Something like a WIKI could be useful in finding the "hidden" info but that is a lot of work and I certainly have no time for such work. Also Hans hopefully publishes his second book rather sooner than later....I hope at least. Maybe even with corrections to Volume I ?

This D25 has the number DA100506. This file (http://guildguitars.com/wp-content/...tr_sl=en&_x_tr_tl=ru&_x_tr_hl=ru&_x_tr_pto=sc) indicates that serial numbers D25 in 1979 began with the code DA100914. Why does my D25 have a different serial code?
Hello BRZV,

Welcome! If you take another look at the serial number charts, you will notice that the numbers for 1979 end with #DA100914; it's not the starting number. Consequently, your D-25 with ser. # DA100506 is from the year 1979.

Sincerely,
