    congrats on your Gurian ! i've bought mine in a small shop in Carmel back in 1977 and it will be with me until the day i die. mostly for sentimental reasons of course but it is a great and eminently playable guitar, non the less. i have seen some with very narrow necks that where not useful for me though- one thing you can count on is that the wood Michael used back in the day was always the best of the best.

    I know a couple of guys who bought Gurian Guitars in the 1970s and traded them in when Taylor and Collings became the talk of the town. Both are now kicking themselves in the pants.

    Congrats Bro.

    Hey, Ed...is that the one Andy got from me?

    If so, it's a great guitar.

    Even if it isn't, it's still a great guitar.

    Welcome to the Gurian club!

    It sure is. I dig this so much I actually started using a thumb pick...on my electrics.
    At least now we're even, with you having that killer Suhr of mine. :)

    Next step I gotta figure out how to amplify it...

    Let me know what you come up with...I need to do the same with the Gurian I kept for myself!

    I've also got a line on a wide-necked cutaway that looks like it was made from the same batch of wood as yours...the seller seems to think it's made of unobtainium (and perhaps it is) but we'll see if she'll accept a realistic offer...it's another great guitar.

    I'm not counting any chickens on that one...the guitar is seriously beat-up, the original FRAP electronics are gone, and the case is shot, but it belonged to her dad and she wants what a clean original example would have brought in last year's economy. On the other hand, it sounded like the voice of god, even with dead strings.

    Tell you what...put a Fishman in yours, and we can see how it sounds through my Mama Bear preamp...
