Latest Guild Updates

1978 Guild B302F fretless The B302F is the fretless version of the Guild B302, which, along with the B301 were Guilds new bass offerings for the late 1970s. Guild hadn't really came up with a innovative bass design since the low-selling Jetstar of the mid-1960s. This is not to say they didn't make fantastic basses; far from it, but the Starfire, JS and Bluesbird (M-85) basses of the late 1960s - mid 1970s could all be said to be derivatives of designs by Gibson (the EB2, EB0/3 and Les Paul bass respectively). So the B301/302 series was something new, not just in looks; it had a new design bridge and pickups too, although the actual construction (mahogany body, set mahogany neck) was traditional Guild. This bass paved the way for many new bass designs into the 1980s, some very unusual indeed. Have a listen to this bass here.
1967 Guild Capri CE-100 A closer look at a 1967 Guild CE-100. The Capri was a full-depth archtop, and Guild's first guitar with a Florentine cutaway - and a very sucessful model too; staying in the Guild catalogue in one form or another from 1958 until 1984. Stylistic similarities between models such as the ES-125C and ES-175 can be made, but this guitar is every bit as good quality as the better known Gibsons.
1968 Guild Starfire Bass IImages and description of a single-pickup 1968 Guild Starfire bass. The Starfire was a very fine bass, and a serious competitor to the Gibson EB2, finding favour with bass players from Phil Lesh and Jack Cassidy to modern-day players such as Justin Meldel-Johnsen.
1953 Guild X-175New picture set of a 1953 Guild X-175 electric acoustic guitar. 1953 was the very first year of Guild production, and in fact this was one of the first 500 instruments produced. It has a number of early features: Franz single coil pickups with black covers, very early inlays, just one volume and tone control and mahogany/maple/mahogany neck. More about the Guild X-175
Fold-out ten sided Guild catalogue. Updates the 1970 Guild catalogue. featuring an expanded range of S series solid bodies, with the addition of the S-50 and S-90. Models are shown with new 70s styling and Guild humbuckers.

1973 Guild CE-100D - Westerly



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

I have a guild electric guitar. I called Guild in their New York location (many years ago) and gave them the description and they told me that there was only 50 made of this guitar in the United States. Do you have any information on this to validate this to be true? It is beautiful red with rosewood and has toggle bar, etc. They said it was custom made. It also has autographs from 2 very famous artist. I would like to have that authencated.
