Excellent guitar at an affordable price
15.09.2016
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.

Hard to find a fault, five stars all around!
jcymbal, 07.03.2018
Wow, this guitar is even more beautiful in the flesh than it seems on the photos. Another 5* for guild. Just had to lower the bridge a bit to get it to where I'm used to.

Can't find a fault with the finish, love the neck (think of thick C shape without being a baseball bat). It's sounds great acoustic (great for playing at night without waking up the neighbours) and plugged in it's just wonderful too. That's a special single coil pick guild got there.

Also, I appreciate the second rosewood(?) bridge that comes inside the quality case.

Thanks thomann for the fast shipping!
