Comments The Guild guitar company made many excellent archtops. This is perhaps not surprising for a company formed by former craftsmen at Epiphone, for decades the premiere builder of archtops.This 1992 example is an outstanding instrument in pristine condition, with very comfortable body and neck shapes.If you need a quality, full-body archtop – and let’s be honest, who doesn’t? – look no further.
