Body: Maple

Neck: Mahogany neck with a “C” profile, 1 3/4” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 10” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Open-back tuners, one pickup (rated at 6.9 kOhms), volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: This vintage player is oozing vintage vibes! The top has some great checking lines, plenty of light dings, and lots of small scratches. The bass side f-hole shows a bit of finish chipping along the bottom. The back and sides continue this pattern of moderate to heavy play wear, with the addition of a crack repair along the side. The neck and headstock have their fair share of dings, scratches and chips, but overall feel nice and homey. Also worth nothing, there is a rather deep gouge just below the Guild inlay. This acoustic is ready to sing!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: There is a repaired crack along the side. The binding has deteriorated and a portion along the backside lower bout has disappeared. There are two added strap buttons along the heel. The low E tuner post has been replaced.
