Me and my guitars...

I bought my first Guild, a 1972 D-35 in January '73, my senior year in high school. Picked up another D-35 (a '78, since sold) in S.F. sometime around '86, for Anne (then girlfriend, now wife). In the summer of '06, I bought a couple of 1974 Guilds off eBay... a mahogany-bodied D-25M and a maple-bodied G-37Bld. When I discovered how wonderfully different they sounded from each other and my D-35, I was hooked... I started "collecting" Guild dreads, with the goal of getting one in each of the tone woods. Between 2006 and 2010, I added a rosewood-bodied '92 D-55 (recently sold), an '81 ash-bodied D-46, a pearwood D-44 from 1971, and a rosewood bodied '76 D-50.

In 2012, I added a 1995 DV-73, with Indian Rosewood back and sides and turquoise, coral, onyx, and nickel silver inlay, and last month (Oct 2014) a 1994 DV-72MK, with Indian Rosewood back and sides and malachite inlay.
