I mean, they’re #4-40 1 1/8″ pan-head machine screws. How hard could it be?
Identifying DeArmond 200, 2000, and 2K Pickups
The pickups in Guild X160 Rockabilly guitars are DeArmond 2000s, and yes, this is about to get very confusing. If you’ve done even a little bit of reading about this topic, then your head is no doubt swimming with 2000, 2k, the other 2000, the vintage 200, and maybe that other company that’s making a 2000. Oh, and let’s throw the word Dynasonic in there for good measure.
Let’s talk some history.
GAD’s Guild Knowledge Base
As a result of trying to manage all those documents, I present to you GAD’s Guild Knowledge Base. This page will be updated as I either acquire new items or as I scan some of the items that I’ve not yet digitized. If you have document you’d like to share let me know and I’ll add it!
Some of the documents are PDFs, and some are just images. I’ve installed a PDF embedded reader so it should all just work, and I’ve made a point of everything being downloadable because information like this should not be hoarded or hidden behind pay walls.

Targ and Dinner (T&D) was Chicago Based Musical instrument distributor that sold Guild and sometimes included Guild catalogs. Since Guild did not time their catalogs to be released at same time as T&D, the contents were often reflective of the previous year’s Guild catalog. Note also that T&D catalogs contain prices which were not part of the Guild catalogs and may not necessarily reflect those found in Guild price lists for the given year.
