    I am proud to say I am finally the owner of a 1975 Guild M85! I feel like I joined an exclusive club. Was wonder if anyone could clue me in on what to look for to make sure it's all original? Any 'warning' signs if you will. Thanks

    No picky, no bassy.
  3. I've got a minor warning: be prepared for many, many other basses to disappoint you, especially if you landed one with Hahstrom pickups!

    Its a set neck so not likely thats been changed, some people didnt care fore the wood saddles and put after market bridges on them, so unless they swapped out the tuners, a 75' should have big ol schallers on it, or put different pickups in it than its probably all original. Hope you got the original case as that helps keep the value as a whole package intact.
