LR Mole Guild factory in R.I. is closing (10) Guild factory in R.I. is closing 27 Jul 01


Fender, which owns Guild, is shutting its Westerly, R.I. operation, and moving it to California. They had a job fair this week to retrain/relocate/god knows all their workers, and maybe this will result in wonderful things in a sparkly new factory and save trees and embrace musical universality. Or maybe they'll stripmine whatever goodwill there is left in the brand name, make endless copies of copies with artificially-applied wear-marks the original players might have put on them had they (the musicians)not died.Who can say? Another bit of Mordor.
