Guild X-500 Archtop 1992 (consignment) SOLD

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 of the X 500 is an outstanding instrument in pristine condition.

Guild made many great working guitars, and this is an example. Spruce tops are unusual on archtops outside of the high-end range, and have a presence, snap and fullness not available with laminates.

Epiphone Zephyr Emperor 1951 (consignment) SOLD

Epiphone Zephyr Emperor 1951 (consignment) SOLD

This is a great older piece. It’s in good shape and has a number of interesting features that show up in much later items. The pearl/abalone V block markers and extra binding inlay on the fingerboard appear on later and higher-end Guild guitars, such as the 1970’s Starfire VI. And the pusbhutton selector appears on many items, from Italian instruments to the 1950’s Dodge Torqueflite transmission. This is a big guitar from a time when volume was really needed, and the Emperor was the top of the heap. As a Zephyr, it’s an electric model, and the Vari-tone refers to the pushbutton selector.
