    Nice looking axe, ez. Hope it serves you well!

    When you have a chance, have a look in the soundhole. I'm curious whether there are one or two truss rods in the latest MIC Guild 12s.

    My only complaint is that with all of the real estate on the headstock, they should have laid in a Chesterfield. But that's just one man's opinion...

    I agree 100% about the headstock. there is only one truss rod.

    One truss rod? Isn't Guild famous for double truss rods in their 12's?

    Mark, on the US-built 12s, that change order to go from 2 x single-action truss rods to 1 x dual-action rod (flanked by two carbon rods) took effect in either 2007 or 2008 in Tacoma. However, I'm fairly certain that I saw GADs being built with 2 truss rods after that time. In any case, I was asking ez about this as his is of fairly new vintage (probably under CMG's stewardship). Looks like they've picked up the single truss there too. I presume they're also using the fixed carbon rods, but that's a wild guess.
