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!

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.

This is a great book for one interested in guitar history and particularly Guild guitars. There are many pictures to help guide you through understanding each model. Additionally the personalities involved in the history of this very special line of guitars.
