I haven’t thought about it that seriously, but if given a chance to own a run of the mill 70s Guild at a good price, I’d grab one. The plain jane cherry D looks super to my eyes. I’ve looked at some on ebay and seems like every one I look at has no saddle left.

It was purchased brand new by my mother 30 years ago, and is gloriously beat up! It’s dinged, dented, scratched, and broken-in: perfect if you want a reliable player!
