Thread Name: DeArmond archtop guitar -- opinions?
Subject: RE: DeArmond archtop guitar -- opinions?
The relationship between Guild and De Armond is the same as that between Gibson and Epiphone. De Armond and Epiphone instruments are made in Asia and are usually mid-priced copies of their parent companies' own US-made products. That doesn't make 'em bad, just a lot cheaper. The De Armond X155 is a copy of Guild's own "Savoy" guitar.
