This is one of the most frustrating questions from the MIJ collector. People often make the mistake of citing the American or European importer as the ‘maker’ of the guitar, when in fact several Japanese manufacturers were producing badged guitars out of their plants and shipping them to America and Europe to sell. Japanese manufacturers made multiple badges at the same plant, many of whom resemble each other closely.

Some manufacturers merged or changed hands over the years which added to the confusion, sometime merging with another maker, only to pick up their name later. In some cases a manufacturer would farm out production to various manufacturers, making it still more difficult to know who made the guitar in your hands.

The only force powerful enough to stop their progress was the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, According to history, all makers dropped what they were doing to join the war time effort. Epiphone had suspended their guitar production to make aileron parts for aircraft. However, the company emerged from the war with a different face…the man whose name was on every musical instrument had died during the war.

When the war ended in Epiphone renewed its battle with Gibson, however Gibson never resumed making upright basses and Epiphone again held strong with its upright bass making prowess. The Epiphone catalog showed this line up of basses with a notion that many items were not yet back into production after WWII.

If you’re not familiar with my site, it’s simple, and you’ll love it or hate it: It’s not a fancy site but it remains unchanged since ’98 so I figure, “if it ain’t broke – don’t fix it. Just click on any underlined text and it should open a picture; if you move your cursor over the pic and there’s a magnifying glass displayed instead of your cursor, click the pic and it will expand it to larger size.

These guitars already have a great vintage vibe with an authentic looking two-tone sunburst gloss finish, parchment parts, and tinted neck, so the vintage logo is icing on the cake. Other features include C-shaped maple neck with maple fingerboard and modern 9. Like the early vintage models this guitar also has stacked knobs with a volume and tone on each pot.

The tone pots are the click type, rather than a smooth taper; nice touch. It might seem odd to have a Jaguar logo but we wanted to have a little fun with it and the two models are very close in styling, especially on these Vintage Modified models. We also did a Jaguar with a Jazzmaster logo! The logo job is perfect with several coats of nitro finish, wet sanding between coats, built up to be as thick as the logo so the outline isn’t visible pic here.

The Guild Company has lived the gamut of human experience. It was created, went through a strong but turbulent adolescence, experienced marriage, blended families, loss and rebirth. In the s, Gibson acquired its chief competitor Epiphone, and in many ways Guild emerged as a high-quality alternative to those two companies. Co-founded by a former Epiphone executive, George Mann, and a music store owner, Alfred Dronge, Guild set up shop in in New York City, amidst both session jazz guitarists and the craftsmen from the Gretsch and Epiphone factories.

Guild hired from the group of craftsmen and received expert input from the session guitarists on building better instruments. The partnership disintegrated shortly thereafter, leaving Al Dronge to bring the company into its powerful adolescence. Dronge hired the right people from around the world to build the first guitars.

It is here that Guild began to attract the biggest artists of the day, and the company attained a high level of market credibility.
