I got s chance to play two of the "new" revamped Guilds this week. I know they've been out for a while but this is the first time I got to put my hands on some. One was a lower end Dread, sitka top, hog body, and one of the American made 000's that was mahogany body and top I beleive. BOTH guitars were an absolute dream to play, just very easy and comfortable. The sound was HUGE. The 000 was almost as loud as a D18 that was also in the shop and the dread was rich and booming and warm. Fit and finish were pretty much perfect on both guitars. What was crazy to me was the dread was said to have scalloped x bracing and it was listed at $399??? Really impressed with both guitars. My old Takamine is about ready to be retired and I'm thinking hard about a Guild. Anyone own some of the new ones? What's been your experience?
