    Default Burnside by Guild - body wood?

    Hey - I've got a strat copy made by Guild called a Burnside - top routed H-S-S configuration.

    I'm planning on fixing it up a little (got a kahler bridge leftover and some better pickups)

    Anybody know what kind of wood these were made from? Can't find anything on the net that's clear. It's painted and I can't really tell. For all I know it could be plywood but I would bet more on basswood or alder.

    Take the pickgaurd off and look in the cavity.
    If it's plywood, you should be able to see the "layers" on the walls of the cavity. If it looks solid, maybe post a pic and we'll see if we can identify it by the color/grain.

    Okay, sorry for the delay. Here's some pics of the cavities. Looks like plywood. Probably just going to get the neck fixed and put a better humbucker in it. May throw an old kahlers bridge on it instead of strat copy. Neck is not bad but it needs a fret dress bad.

    I don't remember it sounding bad so it's probably worth throwing $150 in labor and some loose parts for upgrades.
