Guild F5CE-NT Thin Steel String Natural Top, 1996

Guild F5CE-NT Thin Steel String Natural Top, 1996

This example Guild F5CE dates to 1996, and is in overall good condition. It has been used as intended, so there is expected play wear, but that’s a testament to how useful it is. The original chrome Grover Roto-Matics have been replaced with Gold plated Roto-Matics, but otherwise it is in original condition.

SOLD!!! Guild Songbird Thin Body Acoustic Electric Black, 1990

SOLD!!! Guild Songbird Thin Body Acoustic Electric Black, 1990

Designed by George Gruhn with the staff at Guild, built from 1984 to 1991, this thin-bodied acoustic electric guitar has an under-saddle pickup with controls on the side. These are common features now, but at the time they were groundbreaking. The Guild Songbird Thin Body Acoustic Electric features a spruce top paired with mahogany for the body and neck, and rosewood for the fingerboard. The Fishman Transducer is coupled with side-mounted controls featuring a four-band EQ, volume control, and phase switch. Helpfully, there is an LED indicator for the battery being engaged, or low, and it’s always good to have warning of a low battery. The standard 9v battery compartment is easily accessible on the back of the guitar. Tuners are gold-plated Grover Roto-Matics and work well.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Guild X-170 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Amber, 1985

This first-year Guild X-170 Thinline Archtop Electric Guitar Amber is in good condition. The model seems to have gained the name ‘Mini-Manhattan’ shortly after this one was labelled. It is missing its pickguard and has a replacement compensated ebony bridge and saddle. The original Guild pickups, instantly recognisable with a three-screw adjustment system and two raised areas on the covers, have been replaced with Seymour Duncan units. All the metal parts are gold plated, and the original etched Guild harp tailpiece is in good shape. The strap pins have been replaced with Schaller style strap lock units.

SOLD! Guild F412 Jumbo Maple 12-String Guitar Natural, 2013

SOLD!  Guild F412 Jumbo Maple 12-String Guitar Natural, 2013

The Guild F412 has been near the top of the line for 12 string guitars, with a jumbo body and a huge sound. The F-412 and its mate, the Guild F-512 mainly differ in woods used for the sides and back – the F412 uses flamed maple and the F512 Indian Rosewood. The F412 Maple version will tend to have a brighter sound with a tighter focus on the high end, while the F512 Rosewood will be warmer and focus in a slightly lower range.
This Guild F412 dates to 2013 and was built in New Haven, Connecticut. It’s in very good condition with little wear. It’s bright, clear and well defined. This is a guitar you can really dig into.
