    Heck of a deal on a great offsite with that Guild quality.

    The link won't show. It is a White Guild T-Bird on Amazon for $399.

    As far as weird goes I think I like the guild just a bit more than the liquid

    not more for the money but still tempted more because the different brand, hopefully less a project, different pickups and it would be cool to have a guild.

    You should check out my recent NGD thread about my T-Bird.

    https://www.aguitarforum.com/threads/ngd-guild-s-200-t-bird.101563/

    That $399 one is very cool and a GREAT deal. But the more expensive and vintage-correct model is what I bought, and the controls are just batshit crazy.
    It is a wonderful guitar, and you cannot possibly go wrong at that price.

    The controls on yours just leave me scratching my head. But a lot of stuff does that to me these days.

    This won't require anything other than maybe a minor set up. The Guild Mini Hums are sweet. I owned a Liquid (older model) and the difference in QC between it and the Guild is huge but I am admittedly a Guildaholic.

    At the end of the day, the controls are almost exactly the same as what's on a Jazzmaster or a Jaguar, except that the switches and knobs are in different places. The roller pots are replaced with a second, smaller set of volume and tone knobs. If I hadn't been wishing for one of the original for so many years, and if I wasn't such a stickler for vintage spec, I probably would have gone for the simplified one.

    Not gonna lie - the trem is garbage. I never use 'em anyway. Strictly cosmetic on most of my guitars. I use the Bigsby on my 68 Starfire, and the trem on my 2004 American Std. Strat. That's about it. I took it off my Jag completely! 20180419_205727.jpg

    Dayum - I liked the trem on my JM and my Liquid a lot but I was born with a Bigsby in my hand.:cautious:;)

    Not too solid a body but firm is always nice. Don't want it to feel like you banged your hip on a dresser :)
