I went into REAL GUITARS in San Francisco yesterday to drop off a Strat for a PLEK job at Gary Brawer's shop inside.<br /> <br /> Then i saw it...<br /> <br /> A 1972 Guild G-37 acoustic on the wall. After five minutes of nirvana playing it, I bought the guitar (came with it's original Guild hardshell case) for $825 out-the-door. <br /> <br /> Next stop was the weekly Open Mic at Cameron's Pub & Inn on the coast in Half Moon Bay, CA. I played Gene Vincent's "Be Bop A Lula", Patrick Sky's "Separation Blues", and "Greensleeves" and just LOVED the tone!<br /> <br /> The G-37 is a dread-size guitar that has maple back and sides, solid mahogany neck (in 1972), and an arched back. RINGS LIKE A BELL! This is the first G-37 I've ever seen and/or played in my life.<br /> <br /> i'm a very happy dude!<br /> <br /> 6

For a guy who regularly extolls the virtues of Collings guitars (I think that's you...??), you sure are a Guild junkie. But I understand!

Cool guitar, congrats !<br /> <br /> Laminated maple back and sides gives it some jazz nuance.
