FDP Forum / Guild/DeArmond/Tacoma Guitars / Guild D-50NT



Sep 22nd, 2009 07:16 AM   Edit   Profile  

I have a 1980 D-50 Guild. Have had it in the closet a while. It plays great and really has a great sound. I am wondering what this thing is worth and if I should invest in new bridge pins a new saddle? Any advice?

You've got a great guitar there. Well worth any investment to make it right for you.

I've seen D-50's from this era anywhere from $900 to $1800. Hard to pin an exact number on yours.

You'd be a fool to ever sell it!

If it plays and sounds great, why consider changing the saddle and pins?

Unless, of course, they're worn out. Pins (especially) will get chewed up over time because they're plastic. But if you've been careful with them during string changes they should still be OK.

And, AFAIK, you should have a bone saddle so it's probably still in excellent shape.

I have a 77 D-50 I bought new. I love it. All I know is that I could never afford to replace it.
