    Thanks for all the positive replies, guys!

    I've been working on getting a nice feedback howl going with it so I can play some dirty, nasty blues. I think I need to practice more because it gets out of hand pretty quickly and the whole guitar starts vibrating like mad! I still need to find that sweet spot where I can control it.

        Yep! This is actually the first time I've owned a hollow body electric so it's a whole new adventure. I've owned lots of semi-hollows, but they're nothing like this thing when it comes to feedback. I love it, though! Feedback done right can be so musical and I'm taking it as a challenge.

            I've come so close to owning a Guild on at least three occasions. Yours is divine.

              And, when it's hot like that, you fret a note & frequently don't even need to pick it...it just leaps out at you...
              don;t always remember this so...best to all!
              education...how ya gonna know what to do...'less ya know what to do
              people will not always believe what you say
              but they have no choice but to believe what you do

                    Thanks for that! Are you into old Guild guitars as well?


                    Not like Jay is, i actually am more into the avnet and later solidbodies. I do love me the M series and later bluesbirds.

                      I had a '73 Bluesbird that is one of the few guitars I regret selling. One of my dream guitars is a late 50s Aristocrat, but that's not happening any time soon.

                      There's a guy about half an hour from me who listed two CE100s on Craigslist for $800 each. One natural, one sunburst. We exchanged a few emails but he seemed a little sketchy so I backed out of going to look at them. I kept asking him for photos (because he said in the posting to email him for them) and more info about the guitars, but all he would ever do is propose times and places to meet in less-than-spectacular neighborhoods and say the guitars were in great condition. No thanks. I didn't want to take the risk.

                        If you can master it, you can do some sweet stuff with it. I can do do some simple stuff with mine. It takes practice.
                        And people say theres no sustain with a hollow. HA!

                          if you need correct replacement parts, email this guy: jpilzer@guildguy.com
                          He's called "the guild guy" for a reason. Nice man


                          I emailed him and he responded right away. Sadly, he only has a hinged tailpiece so it's not quite the right one. I'll have to keep looking. Thanks again for the lead anyway!
