Our First Ever Field Trip!

We recently hosted a group of beginning guitar students from Caesar Chavez Elementary School at the Guild factory in Oxnard, California. The 8th graders had a chance to tour the factory and learn how we make our guitars, from sourcing wood to final assembling, and everything in between. After touring the factory, the students got […]

Guild + Make-A-Wish

Ultimate cool-kid Joe from New Jersey asked the Make-a-Wish Foundation for his very own Phil Lesh bass. We were so excited and honored to be a part of the process by donating a Starfire Bass II, which Alembic then modified to match Lesh’s iconic Grateful Dead-era bass. While we’d like to say that the Starfire […]

Guild at SXSW with She Shreds Magazine

We were so excited to take part in SXSW, last week’s film, tech and music festival in Austin, Texas.

Vintage Guitar Magazine Reviews the D-55

It’s another ringing endorsement from the team over at Vintage Guitar magazine: “The D-55 is surprisingly loud even for a dreadnought. And, it’s not just loud, but big-sounding–there’s plenty of bass without sacrificing chime. Chords are clear and balanced even when digging in, and the neck is very comfortable. Overall, the D-55 is an impressive […]
