I just got my first hand made Guardala, a Studio I think. And yes, it plays better than my PMS MBII Guardala, the WWBW MBII Guardala I sold, and the MBI copy Cheong made for me.

I think it is marked S-882, does this number indicate when it is made?
I thought that the baffle of these were flat, but it is not. There is a bend / break in the middle of it. And so is the chamber bigger than what I thought it would be.

I own a PMS New Crescent (lazertrimmed), a PMS BM (handmade) and played a few from WWBW. But the absolut best is an original handmade DG Artist (which is similar to the MB II). There is so much more power to the tone and it's sound is very elegant. I don't think the serial-No. is an indicator for the year of production.

Nothing compares to an original handmade Guardala----NOTHING.

...and I've tried ALL the copies out there!

I have about 35 handmades here for a reason---they are the best.

Daves facings were incredible. His handwork was better then anyones.

That's cool. Man I'm trying to get a Guardala for Alto but just not seeing what I like. I love my Tenor Guardala Studio; bought it from WWBW, got it refaced and modded by Brian Powell, slapped on a Theo Wanne Lig and it's amazing. :)
