Made in China under license Guild.
20 bars of cargo (check because I did not count
Fishman pre-amp in the rose (invisible) and transducer under the bridge.
Adjustable volume and tone
Elliptical fairly flat and round end is played almost like a Lespaul ...
Good accessibility thanks to the cutaway, good balance (it does not fall on the neck like a Firebird eg sober and impeccable finish. simple mechanical (not oil bath gear or molded with visible Comes with a nice solid suitcase tweed khaki vintage look.
Very soft and balanced across the spectrum, bass not turn out as a Martin and are very accurate. The highs are singing in the upper midrange, it has a large projection and sustain correct for volume rather reasonable. I play a pre-amp Via Mind print DTC / 01V96 in a small system with Yamaha active sub in 5 +1 and it's great? I played with fingers or a plectrum (dugain for thick media in chorus) in a style that moves between jazz, blues and flamenco accompaniment "pop-folk" by typing sometimes on the body, and the slide I'm always happy!
The Guild made in China, me it seems, is really an excellent value for money with its preamp Fishman hidden in the rose (Volume + tone) the body is preserved from the usual who smashes generally does not help sound. This guitar is really easy and fun to play.
It can be set low enough action and produces a singing midrange and crystal but not located too high in the spectrum which gives an impression of artificial other guitars (especially with new ropes phosphorus type ...) Not the presence is between 2k and 4k depending on the game and it gives a good color "American" if you can say that. In my case I climb with ropes 11/53 because I often give a lower tone than normal view even lower depending on projects. and in this context also behaves very lelle bien.Je played for years I had a lot of acoustic guitars and electric, vintage or not registered or not, so far. and cejour, I believe that between € 800.00 and € 1500 (price new in France) you can find more instruments than honest look very good, and in the case of this model is in the € 900.00, the same level as those at the top of this range ... after must squarely hit much higher or have the chance to find an instrument called exeption. I therefore warmly recommend this instrument while stating that I do not sell and I do not have family or relationship of subordination with the manufacturer ...!
