Guitar makers have advertised in music magazines such as Down Beat, Guitar Player and very many more. Some manufacturers advertised widely (Guild, Gibson, Fender) but many more didn't and adverts are few and far between. Here are some of my favourite ads out of the ones i've seen. You can browse through all the images from the category links above, or by manufacturer from the links below.

1973 Guild CE-100D - Westerly

GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA, 29607, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$1499

This is a great playing and fantastic sounding Guild CE-100 with a few cosmetic defects that do not detract from its playability or tone which are superb. The parts appear to be all original. The frets show some wear with approximately 70% of their life left in them. The finish shows some checking, but it is quite light for an archtop from 1973. The medium C-shaped neck feels completely smooth, except for two very small finish chips that I don't notice when playing. There is also a chip in the ... more
