1 wgnhim 1 year ago Am I correct in thinking Duane's Guild guitar is the only one of his signature guitars that, in addition to individual volume and tone controls for each pickup, had a master volume control? I don't recall seeing this configuration on any of his Gretsch guitars.I realize it means more wiring and an additional knob, but I've always thought this was a really good set up. My first electric was my 59 Gibson ES-355 and I've always like having individual volume and tone controls. Years later, when I added some Gretsch guitars to the family, I really liked the idea of a master volume, so you retain high frequencies when volume is lowered, but it took a while to get used to having only one tone control for both pickups.I don't believe either Gretsch or Gibson, or many other guitar manufactures for that matter, have offered many or any models with the Guild configuration. To my mind, it's the best of both worlds and I'm surprised there isn't a larger market for it.
