Vintage guitars for sale: Guild S100
Guild produced a number of quite distinctive solidbody electric guitars in the early and mid 1960s; they were certainly one of Americas most notable guitar manufacturers, up there with Gibson in terms of quality, though not in terms of sales. This is somewhat surprising as they made some incredible guitars, every bit as good as anything available elsewhere - perhaps their distinctive body styles were just too unique? Their Gibson ES-335-styled semi-acoustic Starfire was fairing a little better, and perhaps this was the reason that the Guild solidbody range 'went Gibson' in 1969, taking on the body style of the Gibson SG.
Like the SG, the double cutaway S-100 had a mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, and was fitted with two humbucking pickups.
Guild had very many skilled craftsmen, and this was highlighted by the acorn/leaf carved guitars, in which an autumnal design was hand carved into the guitars body.
