1978 Guild D25M [5.5 lbs] :: new pickup for piece of mind at gigs
Lynn, MA performer Don White brought his old Guild by the shop to replace a pickup that had been giving him troubles recently at shows. The pickup was an older Fishman Acoustic Matrix Natural I that had become intermittent. I had worked on this pickup last year (along with other repairs) but the time had come to replace it for piece of mind on the road. We decided to go with a D-TAR Wavelength undersaddle pickup with the optional sound hole-mounted volume / tone control.
Don bought this Guild new in 1978 and tours nationally with it. This guitar sounds great and is one of the most stable road guitars I've come across. The action and neck are solid (ie. no tweaking required). Learn more about Don White at www.donwhite.net
Oh, and make sure you call your Dad.
Note: Fishman makes great reliable pickups. We decided to go with D-TAR just to try something different.
