Cosmetic Condition:  A rare vintage guitar with a very cool vibe.  There are the typical signs of play wear - nicks, chips, dents & dings along with various surface scratches.  There is a crack in the top of the body, upper bout, next to the pickguard.  The crack has been professionally glued & cleated.  There's another smaller crack in the bottom of the body, near the end pin, that has not been repaired.  The neck was reset, and the original saddle & end pins were replaced.  The neck angle is good, and the guitar plays well up & down the fingerboard.  Overall the guitar has a great look to it with a gorge patina.  It's been professionally set up by us with a fresh pack of strings & delivers a warm, rich tone.

Neck:  Nicely rounded mahogany neck with a beautifully figured Brazilian rosewood fingerboard.  Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them.  Original open-back, strip tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 11/16" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length.

Body:  Solid spruce top in sunburst finish with 4-ply binding.  Rosewood bridge with unoriginal saddle & end pins.  Original tortoise pickguard has come unglued slightly around some of the edges, but is still very firmly attached to the guitar.  Solid mahogany back & sides with single-ply back binding.  15 1/4" lower bout width; 4 1/4" depth.  No pickup.

Case:  Vintage hardshell case included along with an old Guild owner's booklet.
