Cosmetic Condition:  Authentic vintage look - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, weather checking & finish wear.  The binding has shrunk just a little bit in both cutaway regions of the body, but is still firmly attached.  There's a very slight gap in the headstock flange on the treble side, but here again it's very firm with no movement.  The guitar is 100% original with a great vibe & gorgeous patina.

Neck:  Slender profile mahogany neck with nicely aged cream binding & black side-dots.  Beautiful Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl block inlays.  Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them.  Mother of pearl Guild & Chesterfield headstock logos.  Grover Pat Pend tuners in perfect working condition.  1 11/16" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.

Body:  Multi-bound, semi-hollow mahogany body with dual F-holes.  Guild-logo Bigsby tremolo tailpiece with compensated bridge; nickel hardware.  Black stair-step pickguard with gold Guild logo & trim.  Guitar weighs 8.5 lbs.

Pickups:  Guild humbuckers.  Bridge - 6.78K ohms; Neck - 6.79K ohms.  Dual volume & tone controls with Guild logo knobs; 3-way toggle switch; master volume control.  All electronics are in perfect working condition.

Playability / Sound:  Nice, low action; smooth, comforable neck - plays & feels great.  Gorgeous humbucker tones - warm & rich sounding with beautiful dynamics & sustain!

Case:  Vintage hardshell case included.  Case is a bit rough with its handle & tolex missing, but serves its purpose well.
