Thread Name: Help: Advice on Hollow Body Guitars
Subject: RE: Help: Advice on Hollow Body Guitars
My advice is 1) buy a used model, 2) spend the money to get a professional to set up the action as you want it, it's worth the cost. It is purely a personal thing but I have great respect for Guild guitars, both hollow body and their accoustic models. I have an 80's X-170 F-hole and it has a enormous tonal range from warm jazzy through to a rockabilly treble with everything else in between. In the 'States you should be able to find plenty of used Guilds. Good Luck.
