Nonetheless, given the book's purpose of providing a no-frills concise reference, it's excellent. And since the Moust book cuts off at 1977, the Beesley book is the best resource for the second half of Guild's existence.
I would say that this book is written for the collector who needs information on a particular guitar before purchasing. Because Guild is a relatively small company, it has the ability to alter it's guitars by way of including a cutaway or maybe changing the bridge or tailpiece. Hence the "collectable" and rare models often advertised. This makes the book a valuable asset as it is quite comprehensive and includes some of these "others". I'm not a collector but do own two Guilds. The book, for me is no more than a reference which I don't think I will use alot. However it is a must for anyone considering bidding on an older Guild or strting a collection. Guild guitars will appreciate and this book will assist the player or collector to make accurate assessments. Recommended for the collector (4 stars) but overall three stars as it will be sitting in my bookshelf aquiring dust for most of it's life.
