Very, Very Good Guitar

By William H. Cobb

from Fayetteville, NC

I bought this guitar without ever having played a Guild Guitar. I had heard from several folks that Guild makes good guitars and I decided that for the price, it was worth the shot... What could I lose? So, I got the guitar and it was an amazing looking guitar and was set up perfectly from the factory. The guitar has a nice, fairly low action on it and was in tune and has yet to go out of tune since buying it. It came with a super nice hard case with D'Addario strings. Overall great guitar and I would definitely recommend to anyone. Any questions, email me.

By Accustatic

Bought the GAD40 last year. It had a bad bow at the 13 fret. Some frets unusable. Guild/Fender would not replace it, though they did pay to have it "set up" at a local shop for me. The shop did the best they could with it and some of the upper frets still don't sound just right. It is a good sounding guitar otherwise. I will not buy another Guild/Fender product. To me this guuitar was defective and should have been replaced-I can't spend $700 for this kind of quality.
