Guild Aviator

Hi,
I borrowed this from friend. Did not see anything like this before. Centre joined 2 piece flame maple body, flame maple set neck, looks like ebony fretboard, EMG 81/s/s pick ups, kahler trem. Strait from 80's. Plays nice.

Re: Guild Aviator

I like nothing about it.
And that bridge to me looks really ugly.
Well personal tastes...

Re: Guild Aviator

If you have nothing nice to say...

That looks like a nice guitar man, any problems with the kahler's tuning on bends?

No tuning issues whatsoever. I was not interested in this guitar first time when I saw it, but after tried it through JCM800 50w combo, I changed my mind. Guitar is very wet sounding. Covering sounds from warm jazz , or very clean but not too bright strat sound, to mighty Les Paul sound. Like Zak Wilde's sound. And neck is just perfect.
It is regularly used in recording studio.

Re: Guild Aviator

I remember these as well; never have seen one "in the flesh" though, only the ads in Guitar Player. Seems like a cool little guitar, and quite the mid-80s time capsule piece. Seems like these were out at about the same time as the original Guild Brian May guitars (the ones with Strat-sized DiMarzio pickups with May's initials on them and also with the Kahler trems).
