I just read the article in GUITAR. Wonderful guitars! I have a small collection myself, and among them a Guyatone Lafayette similar to yours. It plays great, but I had to change the plastic bridge to a metallic one with roller saddles (I have kept the original, of course). The vibrato arm is among my favourites ever. And I just love those quirky pickups. This guitar is a keeper and I use it all the time.
