Guild M-80

Solid body electric guitar

The following text is taken from the 1975 Guild catalogue

Guild 1975 catalog Dynamite because it's so efficient. Everything you like about a double cutaway solid body, plus everything you want in a personal kind of arch topped guitar
M-80CS is more than a rock guitar; its a different way to get deeper into the style of rock that's yours. Full 24 3/4" scale. Guild humbuckers. Polarity reversing phase switch. Master volume. Lots more. Spend a little time with this one. You'll find yourself a new friend.
