Dronge's death was a blow to Guild, but his powerful legacy remained the guiding spirit behind operations.Despite many challenging ups and downs through the late 70s and 80s, the factory in Westerly held to its ideal of craftsmanship. When Guild was eventually purchased in 1995 by Fender Musical Instruments, the event was hailed by the craftsmen in the factory.This commitment means doing all the things that made Guild great in the first place: investing in the highest-quality craftsmen and equipment, and establishing close ties with the finest guitar players.The guitars produced by Guild have always been inspired by the needs of the guitar player.Alfred Dronge, a professional guitarist and music store owner, and George Mann, a one-time Epiphone exec, formed a partnership and registered the Guild name in October of 1952.The partners set up shop in a 1500-square-foot New York City loft in the midst of two very important communities: the community of experienced craftsmen from the nearby Epiphone and Gretsch factories and the community of big-time jazz session guitarists performing and recording in New York.Fill out the form below with some info about your Need and We will get back to you as soon as I can.

But I can't find any "AJ" numbers that go up that high for this model of 12 string. I SAW A PHOTO OF THE SAME GUITAR IN A BOOK ABOUT THE HISTORY OF GUITARS, WHICH STATED THAT IT WAS PART OF A BRIAN MAY MODEL LINE.
