Built from 1964 to 1982, the Guild F212 came with a Natural Top (NT) and was based around a 16 inch wide Jumbo body of Spruce and Mahogany.

This guitar is in good working condition and has had a number of repairs over the years.

❌SOLD❌ Guild Bluegrass F47 Steel String Acoustic Natural, 1972

Introduced in 1963, the Guild Bluegrass F47  model was aimed at the exploding folk and bluegrass boom. In 1966, production moved from Hoboken NJ to Westerly RI.  In 1972, the year this guitar was built, Guild’s President Alfred Dronge was killed in a plane crash and was succeeded by Leon Tell.  The Guild Bluegrass F47, here seen as a one-owner-since-new 1972 model, is based on what’s currently referred to as a ‘Grand Orchestra’ body shape, with solid spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides.

❌SOLD❌ Guild D40SB Steel String Dreadnought Guitar Sunburst, 1975

This Guild D40SB was built during 1975 while the company was in Westerly, Rhode Island. It has definitely been used as its maker intended, and has the wear and repairs to show for it! The Guild D40SB is a dreadnought guitar (hence the D) with 40 level materials and appointments and a Sunburst finish top (the SB in the model number). Similar in concept to the Martin D-18, the Guild D40 pairs a Sitka Spruce top with tropical Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks, back bracing and neck, with Rosewood for the bridge and un-bound fingerboard.

Here’s an unusual piece – from the late 1970’s, an Ovation Preacher Deluxe model 1282 in largely original, good working condition. Built from 1975 to 1983 with the Preacher, the Preacher Deluxe used traditional Mahogany for the body and neck, with an Ebony fingerboard bearing Abalone position markers. The hardware was gold plated, and earlier models had a bridge that partly used plastics.
