1967 Guild Capri CE-100
|Strings suitable for this guitar|
The Guild Capri CE-100 was available from 1956 onwards, and this 1967 instrument is typical of a mid to late 1960s Guild. It has a Guild Harp tailpiece, and, unlike earlier versions with single-coil pickups, a Guild humbucker (used since 1963). Free-floating rosewood bridge and individual tuning keys (Japanese-made). Perhaps these are missing their covers?
Block neck inlays were standard throughout production, as was the inlaid Guild motif and Chesterfield inlay. The neck is a mahogany laminate with a thin maple centre-section, whilst the fretboard is rosewood. The scale is 24 3/4".
The oval label within the sound-hole gives the guitars model and serial number respectively: CE-100 and EF-416 - making this an early 1967 instrument. The style label (with U.S.A. printed at the bottom) was only used between 1965 and 1969.
