In [this article](http://www.guitarplayer.com/miscellaneous/1139/kim-thayil/13759) by Guitar Player, Kim Thayil says, "A particular attribute of the Guild S-100— which is still my main guitar—is that the low strings are very resonant behind the bridge. That helps create weird harmonics when the signal is feeding back. I pick below the bridge, and slide my left hand up and down the string around the 12th fret to create a pulsating, harmonic effect. The other prerequisite is hot pickups. I noticed as a teenager that my guitar was louder than my friends’ SGs and Les Pauls. The S-100’s pickups are also slightly microphonic, so they are great for distortion and feedback."more

This is a beautiful guitar. Adding to its beauty is the truth that you really have to work to get a bad sound out of it. That’s rare these days, especially with a guitar that you can have for under a bill. It’s especially good for dropped tunings. The thing stays in tune no matter how much I throw it around. You can get the specs anywhere, I’m just trying to give y’all a sense of this righteous instrument! Play one. Always play an instrument before you purchase it. Common sense, no? Well, with Amazon, Guitar Center, Musician’s Friend, etc., it’s easy to browse and buy just by looking and reading reviews, but quality can vary so always play before you buy. I’ll tell you though, Guild is an excellent manufacturer and this is a badass instrument.
