“Little Martha” performed by Rick McCargar – composed by Duane Allman

This is a video of Rick McCargar playing the acoustic instrumental classic “Little Martha” using his new Jumbo Guild F-150CE to see how it would sound, and he’s pretty pleased with it.

Love the sound of this guitar! Song composed by the late, great Duane Allman.

Some reverb and chorus added after recording in post-production.

Would be very cool if you supported the art by purchasing this song on bandcamp or iTunes! Thank you, Rick

Acoustic Instrumental by Erwin Van Ligten on my new Guild Westerly Collection F-150CE

Acoustic Instrumental by Erwin Van Ligten on Guild Westerly Collection F-150CE.

This is my fifth day learning/practicing this song by Erwin Van Ligten, and is the most I’ve memorized in a short period since relearning to play following a couple of strokes. I wanted to learn a new song on my new Guild Westerly Collection F-150CE jumbo acoustic-electric guitar. Love this new all solid-wood guitar by Guild! And thanks to MusicStoreLive.com for the setup and quick delivery when I purchased it!

Thank you for watching!

American Musical Supply Review: I Received an Unplayable Guild F-150RCE Jumbo Acoustic Electric guitar

UPDATE AUGUST 24TH 2015: AMERICAN MUSICAL SUPPLY MADE A FAIR OFFER – I ACCEPTED

Announced on twitter that I accepted AMS offer

I bought and eagerly awaited the arrival of my new Guild F-150RCE Jumbo Acoustic Electric guitar from AmericanMusical.com and the guitar has serious neck problems, so I need to send it back.

Video review showing extent of the problems is below.

(EDIT: UPDATE BELOW – I adjusted the truss rod, and it improved the guitar dramatically, but did not fix the dead high-E string, nor of course, the crack at the 12th fret. You can see the new video below the original to hear how it sounds after adjustment.)

I know that from time-to-time, problems occur, and the way in which a company deals with the problem is an indication of their commitment to customer service in a very competitive online environment.

American Musical Supply readily offered to exchange my guitar for another when their next shipment arrives in two-weeks, exchange it for the “scratch-and-dent” guitar they have in stock, or to refund my money.

It would be three weeks until I would receive a replacement “new” guitar, so I asked what they would be willing to do to make me a happy customer….nothing beyond replacing/refunding.

Suffice to say that I am not happy with their customer service.

Guild Guitar is now owned by Cordoba Music Group, after their purchase of the company from Fender. This is a Chinese manufactured guitar, but at $1250, it is not inexpensive. This should never have been shipped.

I’ve purchased from zzounds.com, what they call their “sister” company, and they’ve quickly resolved any quality related problems to my satisfaction..and sadly, there have been a few.

So, here it is, an unplayable Guild guitar:
