Great guitar at ridiculous price
bigdrum52, 24.11.2015
In order to make this work, I have been playing guitar for 45 years, 12 string for 40 years and 30 years GUILD (over time some 6 string and 12 string models). So I know what I'm talking about. Finally I had an original USA F-512, which I have now sold for financial reasons.
The latter, however, only after I had bought this 1512 here and tested. Result: Although not USA, but China, but nothing at all, 1a processing, great sound (GUILD halt, if synonymous somewhat brighter and a tick, but really only a tick less voluminous than the 512, which is actually only in direct comparison) Both acoustically as well as over amplifiers, and truly perfect playability and bundle purity. You can not really complain. And that to a third (!) Of the USA price!
OK, it has only "dots" on the fingerboard and not the fantastic mother-of-pearl inlays of the original and is otherwise somewhat less luxuriously equipped, but it does not itch me at all, I am interested in sound and playability.
Unfortunately, the battery compartment, actually a battery case, as in my 512 with a Velcro closure inside the body accommodated. Optically, this is fine, but it is not practical at all, because you have to remove the strings (or at least loosen them very far) to replace the battery. The use of nano-coated ELIXIR strings, which do not have to be changed so often, is really annoying.
Unfortunately, GUILD, without THOMANN and I knew, had exchanged the Koffert promised in the article description for a "softcase", which is quite light but does not offer the same protection. On my objection, THOMANN finally gave me a suitcase from my own assortment. All's well that ends well.
