What makes this guitar special:  100% original with a super cool, authentic vintage vibe!  The guitar produces a warm, woody tone with a rich resonance & superb playability.  Professionally set up by our luthier with fresh string & low action, so it sounds amazing!

Cosmetic Condition:  This was the previous owner's 'go-to' guitar, as evidenced by the considerable play wear - lots of nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & finish wear.  There are some surface cracks along the laminate sides, particularly around the input jack, but these are purely superficial & do not affect playability or sound quality.  The inside label is mostly missing, but based on the year this guitar would have been made in Hoboken, NJ.  Overall the guitar has a great look to it with a gorgeous patina. 

Neck:  Medium profile mahogany neck with nicely aged cream binding & black side-dots.  Beautiful Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays.  Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them.  Nickel Kluson tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 11/16" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod is in good working condition.

Body:  Single cutaway, hollow maple body with bound top.  Guild trapeze tailpiece with compensated rosewood bridge.  Black 'stairstep' pickguard with gold Guild logo.  Guitar weighs 6 lbs 1.2 oz.

Pickups:  DeArmond single coils with black bezels.  Bridge - 5.58K ohms; Neck - 5.69K ohms.  Dual volume & tone controls with 3-way toggle switch.  All electronics are original & in perfect working condition.

Case:  Later-period Guild hardshell case included.
