Thread Name: Guild 12 Strings
Subject: RE: Guild 12 Strings
guild wass originally started as an alternate,quailty, guitar after the Gibson/Epiphone merger thing and has always maintained a high degree of quality, even after takeovers such as the fender one in '95 or '96. The feel has always been more Gibson than Martin, but over the years they have become distinct themselves. As I said elsewhere, Guild has never had the "panache" in the collector matket.

Another good source for Guild info outside of George Gruhn (who does have a history with Guild), is ....well, I can't remember......but you seem to have all the info you need anyway don't you Lyn? It is Lyn isn't it? Bad memory today........Lyn....right?
