After nearly thirty years, New Hope Guitar Traders, "The Guild Guy" is closing its business. I will continue to love guitars and may buy or sell a few to keep my hand in, but the business as you have known it, is gone.

I want to thank all of you who have supported the company over these many years. I always took great joy in matching up players with the guitars that would enhance their music, and, perhaps, their lives. This has been a remarkable experience for me, and I leave it with a bit of sadness. I am, however, going on to do other things which are all exciting. I will have a new book out this September, a new marriage, a new location, and have just started my podcast "Pilzer Pod."

I still have a stock of parts that I would like to sell in bulk. These include knobs, tailpieces, pickguards, bridges, and more. If you are interested, give me a call (931-433-1955) or shoot out an email at Email is the best way to reach me and I will call you back if you leave a number. I am also going to sell the domain name, Again, contact me by phone or email if you are interested.

So, with that, thank you again.

Jay Pilzer, who used to be "The Guild Guy."
