    Congrats on your fine looking new guitar. I hope there are no more problems with it. Demo video makes it sound good for sure. Enjoy!

    Thanks, Dana. I'll be plugging it in this morning. What's that model in your avatar? That's gorgeous.

    Okay guys. Some of you wondered how the Guild sounded (to me). Its got a great voice. More than I expected from a dreadnought. Its not at the booming level of my Gretsch White Falcon Rancher but that's a jumbo body. Not as 'punchy' as the Ovation Celebrity.
    Nice sustain. Very well set up with a surprisingly easy action.
    It may be my imagination, but I believe the ebony back and sides radiate more sound than the sides of my other acoustics. Unplugged, its a tactile feel right through my t shirt. The higher notes have a 'percussive' quality (but that might be my clumsy picking). All in all, I'm pleased. Aesthetically, I'm very happy.
    If it was a cup of coffee, it would be Jamaican Blue Mountain.

    That's my G5422G-12 twelve string. I really like it and it's my granddaughters favorite to play also.
