I think thia is a good book. It gives an interesting history of the Guild company. It also has a lot of details that can help the collector identify what type of Guild he has and the date it was made. It has some great photos (most black and white, but there are some color ones to). It is a nice coffee table book for a musican. My only comlaint is that for the price it should be a hard cover (but then I'm cheap).

Guild experts call this book "The Bible." This volume covers Guild through 1977. (A second volume is forthcoming.) It contains more of the important details about Guild through 1977 than all other sources combined. It's as informative as an encyclopedia. Yet it's also a readable history plus an anthology of great photos.

I bought this book because I am the original owner of a Guild acoustic guitar that I got in the late 50s when I was in the 5th grade (I'm nearly 62 now!). It has serial # 16! I couldn't find any exact info on this particular guitar online or from some sources I contacted, but this book was recommended to me. It was such an interesting read, and the pictures are amazing, too. If you want to know about these wonderful guitars, this is a great source!

Very informative book especially for the older Guilds. Guild's don't get the "press" that the big names like Fender and Gibson and they seem to be stuck behind Martins and Taylors. Not sure why that is but they are solid guitars & real tone monsters.

This book has a significant amount of the normal info you would expect but also gets into info on knobs, pickups, labels, tuners, headstock differences and such. Warning this book only covers to 1977 so if you have a newer Guild you are out of luck for the moment. However, if you want to educate yourself about Guilds (acoustics, solidbodies hollowbodies and speciality stuff like mandolins) this is an excellent book to do so. The black and white photos are crisp and clear and the color photos really look nice and the text is easy to read. Very much worth the money.

Now would somebody please do a book for guitars made after 1977!

The book does a good job of catalogging the Guild companies guitars in the early years. There are a lot of pictures of very well preserved/restored Guild classics. I am curious as to why the author didn't continue the timeline at least until Fender bought the company. Guild made some fine guitars after 1977(the last year the book documents). I know because I own a 1978 D-35sb that is amazing. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in Vintage Guild guitars. It contains a lot of good information that can be difficult to find elsewhere.
