Description

100% original & a superb player with a gorgeous voice that delivers warm, luscious tones from the pair of P-90's. Very light weight & exceptionally resonant with a rich acoustic resonance that is second to none. Professionally inspected & set up by the experts here at Cream City Music, so it's ready to play straight out of the case.

Cosmetic Condition: Personally I think she's looks great for being 60! Good honest play wear typical of its age - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & some mild finish wear. There's a bit of shrinkage in the body binding here & there, but it's all still firmly attached. Overall it looks marvelous & invokes everything we've come to love about true vintage guitars - an authentic vibe with a beautiful patina.

Neck: Very soft V-shaped mahogany neck that rounds out nicely as you work your way up. Nicely aged cream binding with black side-dots. Beautiful Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl & abalone block inlays. Frets show a little bit of wear, but have plenty of life in them. Mother of pearl Guild & Chesterfield headstock inlays. Kluson Deluxe tuners with pearloid buttons in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 25" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod is in good working condition.

Body: Single-cutaway, semi-hollow mahogany body. Spruce top in sunburst finish with 3-ply binding. Guild "harp" tailpiece with gold hardware. Compensated rosewood bridge with adjustable wheels. Black plexi pickguard with gold Guild logo. Guitar weighs a delightful 4 lbs 15.5 oz. Under 5 lbs!

Electronics: Dual P-90 single coils with cream "soap bar" covers. Bridge - 5.95K ohms; Neck - 5.91K ohms. Dual volume & tone controls with clear Guild knobs; 3-way toggle switch. All electronics are in good working condition.

Case: Original hardshell case included. The case also shows typical wear & tear for its age & the fabric from the handle has come off.
