Anybody have any experience with one of these? It's for sale here in Chile.
Early run of guild inspired designs 1990's? Probably right after fender bought guild...
It's a Squier version of a guild s1.
They also made some 335 shaped guitars too. mostly Korean mostly decent.
Never seen one of those.
Oh thats gonna piss of the Gibby Faithful
Gibsg look its the sign of the second coming !!!
I peed myself I laughed so hard.........
Yeah Dearmond was absorbed by Fender and this was one result.
I don't like it...it's horns aren't pointy enough to be a SG.
This is a Guild copy , funny guitar.
Looks interesting; if the price is right then why not?
I've played one. It's ok, but no SG. I found the feel a little rough and the sound a bit brash. I'd throw out the tuners pretty quick and clean up the fret work. Might sound good through a Bassman with 2/15s but what doesn't?
The Dearmond bluesbird/M-75 copy I had for a time was about like that.
Asian copy of the Guild Polara (also known as the S100). I had an original and it was pretty nice. More heavily built than an SG, brighter pickups, phase switch, Grovers.
It was nice, just not special...there is magic in an SG.
I really dig the USA made S100s.
The later ones had Seymore Duncan's stock.
Kim Thayil's weapon of choice...
'93-'94 still had HB-1s. At some point in '94 on through '00/'01 they had SD-1s (Duncans), with early ones having the Guild covers. There are also later Fender designed HB-1 style pickups out there that tend to sound like poo. The first Korean run has mini-humbucker sized pickups Guild dubbed Anti-Hum Dual Coils. The current Korean run has full sized humbuckers, designed with help from Mr Tim Shaw to emulate vintage HB-1s as closely as possible.
