Ahhh yes nice collection you have there, love that white stack as well! Cheers Mitch
After my PRS and SG, this c. early 80's Harmony Marquis is tied for 3rd wth my Strat. I rebuilt last year - fret level all new electronics, etc., and it plays and sounds great. Now that I think about it though, all the electronics are essentially same as a Gibson (490R/498T, Orange Drop caps, braided wire, etc.,) so maybe this doesn't qualify on this post since it's supposed to be non-Gibson/Fender lol.
And of course 80's Jacksons:
My favorite guitar would be my Martin D18. That's a real treat to play!
LOL Man of many words
Ok KB, I’ll use a few more words!
Back in 1974 I was on the market for a nice acoustic guitar, I was 18 years old. Now keep in mind, back then there was no internet, so no online buying. People went to their local stores to buy products. I frequented a couple of different music stores for my guitar stuff.
So I went to one of my local music store to try some acoustics, this particular store usually had the best selection. I played a couple of Gibsons and a couple of Martins and one Guild. The Guild sounded the best!! I kept going back and forth between these guitars, I wanted to like either the Gibson or the Martin, but it wasn’t happening.
I didn’t know anything about Guild, but it sounded great! I spent quite a bit of time there trying to prefer the Gibson or the Martin,....I thought if I play them long enough, one of them would sound and play better than the Guild,...didn’t happen!
So I ended up bringing home a 1974 Guild D35,...that I had been playing for almost 3 hours,....and I’ve had it ever since,...45 years and counting.
Great story! Thanks for sharing.
I grew up just behind you and remember gear hunting going from store to store. There’s something to be said about that.
Some people consider this a Fender. But this thing will Smoke a Fender any day.
