well, here are two beauties....

first is my 1966 Guild f-20. Barely a scratch, small lightweight and just rings when played.



next... the nicest guitar ive ever played. i had it in my possession for a while, but i was holding onto it for my uncle. a 1942 Gibson L-00.... same deal, small body, but you would never know it by just hearing it.



Both of these guitars are in MINT condition, they are amazing.

Lovely F-20 Darren. I had the pleasure of playing one a buddy brought to the Arlington Guitar show in October. Tons of sound and real easy to play.

Different pickguard on that though no?

Thanks for the compliment on my guitar. I love everything about it, and it definitely turns some heads.

As far as the pickguard goes, I think it is original... but I'm not sure.

Also, looks like you are quite the Guild fan! I dont blame ya.

To me, they're an incredible guitar. They don't get the respect I think they deserve, which does tend to keep the prices down, I don't mind that. They have a great sound, full, throaty, even my JF which is maple has some real good bass to it, unlike others I've heard and played.

Guild

I have one old Guild like i said 1966. And then Guild starting making the Dearmonds made in Korea. These guitars are awesome for the money. I have two Starfires and one DEarmond special with a Bigsby type tremolo.

I have many guitars and the Cherry red Dearmond with the DEArmond gold tone pickups is a great guitar.

Just had it professional set up and it plays really nice. They made the DEarmond for 5 years and then Fender pulled the plug on them.

I think someday they will get apprecaited for what they are.. No there not the real deal but there also not 1800.00.
I see you can get them used now for about 500.00 a steal for a guitar like this.
I had a new Epiphone Dot..very similar in style but night and day with playability and sound.

MY Guild

I have had this guitar a long time. Its a 1966 T-100 Guild. I am a bit confused about the T-100.
I see T-100 on ebay with a single pickup and this one has to single coils.. Unless there is maybe another letter like T-100-D.


This guitar is not all origianal like i wish it was.. Been Re-finished and , re fretted and the Tuners are different.
Everything else is original. Plays pretty good..

I bought a New Dearmond Special that was i believe taken after this Guild and the Neck is exactly the same.


Well for some reason i cant post a Picture.. The button at the top dont work.

Im not sure about the pickguard, but you are not the first person to say something about it not looking original... but I've also had quite a few people say that it is.


But anyways... For anyone who really like the Guild, I am sad to say that I am putting this guitar up for sale.... so check out the sale forum, or email me at [email protected] and we will talk.
