manufactures the new 2005 Guild models that are getting rave reviews worldwide.
Do not buy one of those Corona built Guild's they were considered a failure even
by the people who built them. In fact Fender dumped them on the market by
selling them all off to a wholesaler from Tennessee who specializes in
supplying pawn shops with dreck guitars. The smartest move Fender ever
made was to purchase Tacoma and leave it alone to continue building some of the
finest guitars in the world.
Custom Shop Monterey Mod
This Tacoma Custom Shop Series V guitar sounds even better than it looks, if
that is possible. It's
wearing an Amazon top, which is nearly 2,000 years
old, and the sides and back are of Claro Walnut. The exquisite Purfling and Flamed
Koa Binding all around
the Body and Ebony Fretboard truly accent the beauty of the Walnut. This ancient
Cedar top, which is extremely dense, when paired with the Claro Walnut, produces a fat, sweet tone that is
evenly balanced with great depth.
