Guild Guitar Catalogs

Welcome to GAD’s Guilds guitar catalog collection. I’ve spent years (and many dollars) collecting these catalogs for my research of varios Guild guitars for my GAD’s Guild articles.  I became frustrated by people charging for the privilege of looking at catalogs and I firmly believe that this stuff should be available for everyone’s research use, so here they are. I have physical copies of every catalog shown which were all painstakingly scanned or photographed, then cropped, formatted, and color-corrected in order to be included here.

If you have a catalog that I have marked as Missing, and you’d like to share a copy (or sell me your original), please contact me or leave a comment.

Each catalog has an image of every page as well as a PDF of the entire catalog.

The binders where they all reside along with other research material related to Guilds (mostly):

Last but not least, I must give a hearty thank you to Meghan Donahue who I paid handsomely to scan all of these catalogs. It was worth every penny because there are well over 1,000 scanned pages in this collection (not including the pre-1969 catalogs that are too large for the scanner) and it took her weeks. Having a bored college kid around who needs money is the best!
