I wanted to check in to see if you were going to pursue @CLMacPherson's G-212? You made the initial contact so if you want it of course it's all yours. If not I'm going to follow up with him. LMK thanks! How was that other G-212 you went to look at?
Hi Dread: several folks tell me you are/have been involved with Guitars for Vets. I'm thinking about donating to them, but would like to hear something of your experience with this group. Just double checking before I make a contribution. Thanks, Jeff/Uke
As I mentioned in the chat about your Starfire II to III conversion, I'd like to do the same to my '64 Starfire II. Is it a Guildsby B7 I should be looking for?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Serial no. on Ricks 1967 is HD-260. Yours is pretty close. I did buy it and it plays like a dream and I'll bet yours does too. It is strange playing it knowing what it has witnessed. I was lucky enough to see Rick playing solo gigs in Niagara Falls three times with it, over a good span and yes, he played it like no tomorrow, hence the earned wear and tear. Cheers
I'm a relatively new LTG member based in Southern California. I'm wondering if you could recommend a luthier in SoCal who is experienced with Guild acoustics and electrics? Thanks in advance for any info.
I picked up a 59 X-175, s/n 11828. Came with the original case. It's been modified with a Bigsby. It has the Chesterfield logo on the headstock.
The pots closest to the edge are the tones and they are both stacked pots. Curious to know if this one is the same. The volume pots are normal. I had to reglue a couple of the fingerboard inlays as the were coming up. Let me know if you're were able to get it.
William, somehow I managed to delete your message (this forum is NOT easy to use), but I'll try to answer your questions as best as I can recall them.
However, I've tried 3 times now and am unable to post. Too many characters, it tells me. Can you try using the envelope character up at the top? Just send me a quick note, you don't need to repeat your questions.
I'm very interested in your D-50 burst. Is it still available?
If so, a few questions:
-does the guitar have any cracks anywhere? Any checking (crazing)?
-could I trouble you for a few more pictures? Of the sound hole and pick guard, of the sticker inside the sound hole, and another that is a side view of the string action at the 12th fret?
I got a message from Chazmo. Told me to knock my politics off. Politics has got in the way of me expressing myself. What I said would have not been deleted a year or two ago, but now it's a new relevance. What is the next word I won't be able to say?
Hope I'll be here to answer your reply.
