Comments about CE-100D Capri with Guild Vibrato Tailpiece:

The guitar isn't great acoustically, but it is fun to play. I am really frustrated with Musician's Friend because I bought this new and right out of the box, the case has a hole/tear in it! The picguard is scratched (although, this is just the film on it) and there was a lot of debris from Styrofoam and stuff clinging to the guitar. This purchase has really soured me on Musician's Friend and Guild. I guess I expected a bit more from both.

    When I received the guitar everything was perfect. No blemishes. Action was fine. I have bought four guitars from Musicians's Friend and all came in perfect. Thanks

        Comments about CE-100D Capri with Guild Vibrato Tailpiece:

        I like Guild guitars. I own a newer Aristocrat and a newer Starfire iv hardtail, so I can't be accused of bias against the brand. But this Capri was not very resonant, sounded dead acoustically, and when plugged into my Fender Champion 100, never came to life like the demos available online and from the Guild site. Others certainly do not share my experience; but we love our guitars and this one did not want to love me.

          Comments about CE-100D Capri with Guild Vibrato Tailpiece:

          I love this guitar, but then again I seem to love most Guild Electric Guitars...they are beautiful to look at and a pleasure to hold, a joy to play, and a source of great pride to own. I recently bought one of these and I can't seem to put it down. The sound acoustically is amazing and the plugged in sound is great too. Honestly, I don't have much experience with hollowbody guitars to compare it to, but I was able to play a 96 Gibson ES175 unplugged recently and I believe the Guild CE100 sounds much better. The Value is amazing too when you consider what a new ES175 will run you. I had looked at the Gretsch 5420, but when you threw in a hard case, it wasn't much cheaper and I don't think it sounds as good. Guild Guitars = class to me...not overpriced, everyone has one who can spend $5k on a guitar kind of class, but an "I value Value and good looking, great sounding guitars" kind of class.

          Comments about CE-100D Capri with Guild Vibrato Tailpiece:

          I've been playing for 40 years. I've owned many guitars and consider myself an expert on guitar setups, build quality, & tone sculpting. I mostly play rock, alt rock, blues and country. My collection currently inlcude 6 quality USA built guitars (Gibson SG Standard, Gibson SG Pete Townsend w/p90s, Gibson LP Double Cutaway w/P90s, Fender American Deluxe Strat, Fender American std Tele, and a Fender American special Tele). I've had to cut down considerably to just get to this basic set of guitars that I love to play. I've passed through many others that wound up getting sold to focus on this set. I just recently added the Guild CE-100D Capri to the line up. I've owned several Asian Gretch hollowbodies etc. and am familiar with what your money can buy in the hollowbody arena. I absolutely LOVE this Guild CE-100D. It's build quality is excellent. It feels great to play. It sounds incredible. The good news is that it's versatile enough to play any of the styles I enjoy. I mean I don't play metal very often and when I do, I would not reach for this. This thing has the tone I've been looking for in a hollowbody. I found myself playing and getting the sounds I heard coming out of George Benson - deep bassy balsy guitar runs that just make me smile from ear to ear. The hollow body is very controllable in terms of feedback but you can get it right to the edge and hear this wonderful sustain. You can feel the back of the guitar move against your body as it fills up with sound. Also note that - the reason I picked this one is that it sounds great unplugged. I mean I compared it to an Gibson ES-175 unplugged and I this one moved more air. I think it's a great price. I compared to the Gretsch g5420 and similar Gretsch's i've owned and this is guitar does edge them out for certain styles. If I were only going to play Rockabilly I'd prefer the Gretsch. But for blues, jazz this one wins. And it comes with a case which the Gretsch doesn't. I'm happy
