Artist to Watch: William Fitzsimmons

Here at Guild, we occasionally like to feel all of the feelings, and boy, did we find the best music to bring all of those feelings out. You might have heard singer-songwriter William Fitzsimmons beautifully melancholic tunes on Grey’s Anatomy or One Tree Hill, but here at Guild headquarters, we’re just endlessly listening to him […]

Guild at SXSW

A few weeks back, we were at SXSW in Austin, Texas with our friends at GQ Jam In The Van! We had a blast mingling with bands and showing them a few of our favorite Guild guitars. We’ll be updating this post with videos from Jam In The Van and a few of the bands […]

Artist to Watch: The Soft White Sixties

The Soft White Sixties is a band on the rise, and we’re not just saying that because they’re the newest addition to the Guild artist roster. This San Francisco-based quartet is definitely reminiscent of that classic, gritty 70’s rock sound, but with a modern, indie twist. The boys have already caught the music industry’s attention, […]

Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein Rocks her Polara

Indie-punk band Sleater-Kinney was formed in 1994, but went on a hiatus following their critically acclaimed album The Woods in 2006. When the band released their 8th studio album in January of this year, we at Guild were excited to see this riot grrrl trio take the stage again! While casually watching this recent NPR performance […]

#AskRen Round 3

We know you’ve all been anxiously awaiting another rousing round of #AskRen, and we’re happy to reveal the next batch of questions! Let’s get right to it: Is there a chance that Guild might reissue some of the hyper-cool hardrock-oriented solid bodies from the 80’s, like the Nova, Skyhawk and BladeRunner? Not right away. There’re […]

Artist to Watch: James Blackshaw

British guitarist and songwriter James Blackshaw is no newcomer to the music scene–his upcoming album Summoning Suns will be his 10th–but his music is most certainly a breath of fresh, creative air. Recording on his Guild GAD 12-string, strung up like a 6-string, Blackshaw has been getting major buzz for his slightly melancholic, innovative album. And […]

Artist to Watch: Nikki Lane

Not a country fan? Allow us to convert you! Nashville-based singer/songwriter Nikki Lane is beloved by Dan Auerbach, KCRW, and Paste Magazine alike–and all for good reason. Says Pitchfork: “Nikki Lane isn’t like many of the young, confident, defiant women of the female roots world. You get the sense she’s more of a beautiful train […]

Artist to Watch: Valaska

Valaska is a Chicago-based indie band about to release their sophomore LP Thing. Wonderfully brooding and reminiscent of one of our favorite indie bands Death Cab for Cutie, Valaska’s latest release has been on repeat over at Guild headquarters. Check out this video of “Bijou,” off their first album, played on a Guild acoustic. Make sure to […]

Guild at the Grammys!

Did you see us at the Grammys last night?  Album of the Year winner Beck performed “Heart Is a Drum” off of  Morning Phase with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, and a Guild acoustic helped round out the performance! A full clip of the performance is below. Also, Guild favorite St. Vincent walked away with the […]
