Great comping archtop

04.01.2016
I bought this wonderful Guild archtop from Thomann in December of 2014 and I must say that I?m very happy with it. The build quality is great and it has a nice loud and crisp tone. Starting from the headstock and down, the tuners work well and holds the tuning really good, nut is nicely cut and set slightly high from factory so you can trim it down if needed. Neck is really nice and chunky and fretjob great. The fretboard inlays are not the most spectacular in the world but does the job. Bridge is well-made and the tailpiece gives the guitar a nice classic look. The sunburst finish is great and adds to the constant inclination to want to play this guitar just by looking at it.

I can?t say much about the pickup since I removed it quite quickly since I do not intend to play this guitar amplified, but use it as an acoustic jazz comp guitar. Pick guards are in the way for my playing style anyways, and the one on this guitar made some buzzes when played forcefully. If you want to remove the pick guard and pickup, take the guitar to a pro since the wires are attached in a strange way to the back of the guitar, inside of where the strap pin is.

I can?t really find anything critical to say about this one, it?s a blast to play, loud with a crisp almost dry tone comping and really clear when playing solos. This is a keeper for sure!

Trasgo, 23.01.2016
Zuallererst möchte ich sagen, daß die Gitarre hinsichtlich der Lackierung makellos verarbeitet ist. Eine wahre Schönheit offenbart sich demjenigen, der den gut verarbeiteten Koffer öffnet. Lediglich das Binding an den F-Löchern fehlt, eine Tatsache, die allerdings in dieser Preisklasse zu verschmerzen ist. Der akustische Ton ist generell gesehen sehr gut, auch wenn es sich bei diesem Instrument nicht um eine geschnitzte, sondern gepresste Decke handelt. Kleine Abstriche mußte ich jedoch in der Ausgewogenheit zwischen h und e-Saite machen, dies (wenn nicht konstruktionsbedingt) dadurch hervorgerufen, dass der Steg keinen vollständigen Kontakt mit der Decke hatte (wurde in einer anderen Bewertung auch schon einmal bemängelt). Das muss und darf nicht sein. Das Volumenpoti hatte minimalsten Kontakt mit der Decke, was bei bestimmten Frequenzen zu Vibrationen führte. Verstärkt ein schöner, jazziger Ton, der den akustischen Archtop-Charakter der Gitarre schön mit sich trägt. Jedoch war die Unausgewogenheit zwischen h und e-Saite verstärkt dermaßen auffällig, dass das Spielvergnügen schnell beeinträchtigt wurde. Nach kurzer Begutachtung habe ich festgestellt, dass der Floating-Pickup nicht am Schlagbrett befestigt war und somit nach unten abfiel. Ich habe ihn einmal kurz fixiert und siehe da, eine minimale Verbesserung des Problems. Zusammen mit der Anpassung des Stegs hätte dieses Instrument ein vollkommen gut funktionierendes sein können. Ich muß dazu sagen, dass ich selber Gitarrenbauer bin und habe die Gitarre mit der Bitte der Überarbeitung und Rückmeldung nach Thomann zurückgeschickt (Garantieverfall). Ansonsten bin ich überzeugter Thomännler, immer äußerst zufrieden bezüglich Service, Kundennähe, Kulanz etc.
Mir wurde jedoch der Preis einfach erstattet, ohne jegliche Rückmeldung oder dgl.
Schade, hier hätte ich mir mehr von der Reparaturabteilung erwartet, als das Instrument einfach als B-Ware wieder einzustellen. Hätte mich mit der Gitarre anfreunden können. Zu diesem Preis ist es dennoch ein hervorragendes, unschlagbares Instrument, wenn man von den genannten Mängeln an hoffentlich nur diesem Instrument absieht. Andere Savoys mögen da sicherlich besser dastehen.

Nachtrag 31.01.17 :
Habe mir das Instrument noch einmal bestellt und dieses Mal gründlich gecheckt. Wie gesagt am Klang und an der Verarbeitung gibt es nichts zu meckern, doch die Vibrationen waren auch bei dieser Gitarre vorhanden (daher nur die 2 Sterne bei der Verarbeitung). Ich bin dann nach Thomann gefahren und habe zwei weitere Gitarren angestestet, alle mit demselben Resonanzproblem. Auch in der dortigen Gitarrenwerkstatt konnte man den Fehler nicht finden. von der Hardware kommt er auf jeden Fall nicht, denn die wurde abgebaut. Es scheint sich hier um einen bauartbedingten Fehler zu handeln, denn ich habe insgesamt 5 !!! Savoys (auch von andere Anbietern) getestet, die alle akustisch und mit dem Plektrum gespielt auf der tiefen E-Saite im 3./10. und 12. Bund merkliche Resonanzen aufwiesen. Verstärkt nicht wahrnehmbar, aber mit dem Mikrofon abgenommen nun doch schon sehr auffällig. Wirklich schade, denn ich hätte dieses Instrument gerne mein Eigen genannt, da ich mit dem Klang sowohl akustisch als auch verstärkt sehr zufrieden bin, aber bei einem Instrument von über 1000 EUR kann ich mit dem vorhandenen Fehler leider nicht leben. Ich würde mir wünschen, dass Guild einmal auf dieses Problem aufmerksam gemacht werden und diesen Fehler beheben würde. Ansonsten wie immer wunderbarer Service seitens Thomann.
Nachtrag 2: Thomann sagte mir, dass alle von mir angetesteten Gitarren zum Hersteller zurückgeschickt würden, weil so etwas nicht ginge. Sie waren aber sofort wieder online verfügbar, also Obacht und Augen auf beim beim Kauf.

Very well made and finished. Beautiful sound through pickup. In comparison to a lot of modern guitars of a similar price range i would say the fit and finish is superior to others. Although its a solid top it's really still more an an electric guitar and is most suited to flat wounds through an amp. I rate this guitar highly.

Very good guitar since the first glance, nothing wrong in the finish.
The guitar comes with flat-wounds .012 - .052 and the factory set-up is acceptable.
Every new guitar needs tuning and set-up, but this Guild out of the box is ?playable? immediately after tuning, but the pickup is much lower on the side of the first string than on the side of the sixth string, and the factory action in my opinion is a bit too high.
After removing the plastic protection under the bridge, with the bridge at his minimum height, the factory setup had an action at the twelfth fret of 1,6mm for the first string, and 2,10mm for the sixth string.
Since the standard for my hollow-body arch-top guitars includes flat-wound strings .013 - .056 and an action at the twelfth fret at 1,3mm for the first string, and 2,00mm for the sixth string, I changed the strings and made a new set-up.
During the years I have learned to make works of basic lutherie by myself, so:
I have mounted and tuned the new flat-wound .013 - .056 strings
to compensate the major traction of the .013 strings, I have slightly tightened the truss rod, controlling the straightness of the neck with a mechanical ruler
I worked with a file on the bridge to reduce the action at the twelfth fret to my standard
I lifted the pickup on the side of the first string, adding thickness at the base of the pickup using felt pads, till obtaining at least the same distance between the pickup and the strings both for the sixth string and for the first .
Now the guitar is an excellent guitar, the action of the neck is very comfortable, and there is no fret buzz.
I compared it with my 2004 Epiphone Emperor Regent, both the guitars are made in Korea, and I have to say that I prefer this Guild A-150.
I like more the acoustic timbre of the Guild, I expected that the A-150 would have been louder acoustically with his solid body top, but the Emperor Regent with his laminated top is as much as loud, if not louder.
The Emperor Regent has an higher bridge for the same strings and action of the A-150, in arch-top instruments there is a direct correspondence between acoustic volume, the height of the bridge, and the force transmitted from the strings to the top of the instruments.
Probably the solid top of the A-150 compensates for the lesser force transmitted from the strings with his lower bridge, and what is more the Emperor Regent is 12 years old its woods are definitely more ?mature? than those of my newborn A-150.
Electrically speaking DeArmond 1000 Rhythm Chief with just the volume pot is something absolutely astonishing, you have just to play the guitar in a good tube amplifier leaving free your musicality.
The pickup seems to have an output higher than normal, and is very sensitive, I had to use a setting of the gain control on the amplifier lower than my usual.
Just changing the picking position of the right hand, from near the neck to near the bridge, you can use a wide palette of sounds, with a slight variation at the volume pot you can add or remove a bit of thickness to the sound.
You just have to remember that you are playing an hollow-body with his attack and his sustain, remember also that bending strings .013 - .056 is harder than with .010 - .046
Choosing a different position for picking and with little adjustments to the amplifier (gain, tone, reverb) you can amuse yourself playing Jazz, Rockabilly, Rock & Roll, Blues, Pop, and any song you have in your mind.
You can find yourself in trouble only if the long sustain of a solid body is truly indispensable.
I have to admit that in the beginning I thought that one pickup with just the volume control would have been limiting, but freeing my mind from the conditioning I have found that this configuration gives much more freedom than I could imagine.
I can just think what I am going to play instead of thinking about selecting pickups and setting volume and tone controls, the sound comes from the mind and the hands of the guitarist, not from the equipment.
When I play it acoustic it reminds me the Eddie Lang sound, electrically has an heavy flavor of Jazz, but remember that the James Bond 007 Theme was played with a DeArmond Rhythm Chief.
Thank you Guild, an excellent guitar at an affordable price.
