    Hard to say...
    Guild has always come up with obscure models over the decades to see what would 'hit', some cool some not.

    The best place I like to watch for values is ebay, because those bids are telling me that's what people are willing to pay for such items.

    $450-600 is what I have seen them sell for
    Quite a number of people are up grading them with DarkStar pickups

    Thanks

    No then I wouldnt recommend it
    The Guilds have a 60's feel to them

    Show him some catalogues and see what your son has to say

    I'd be interested in buying the Guild

    My son is 14 (today) and he is pretty specific about what he likes and doesnt like. Get your son involved and do some research together and then check out some shops together.

    Definitely get something used
    I would suggest Fender Japan , they have some good models and they have good resale

    Thanks

    Robert

    Hi all thanks for the reply , I will do some more looking into the bass recommended we only need a guitar as I have a old fender pratice amp 10 watts.
    As for buying the Guild dont forget I live in Australia so shipping the guitar to you might be fun
    Thanks all Robert
