The 1968 Guild electric guitars catalog was a two colour, 16 page brochure of Guild electric acoustic guitars, solid bodies, and flat-top acoustics available from the company circa 1968. Dimensions 12" x 9". New models include the newly reissued M-75 (now a Bluesbird rather than an Aristocrat), and single and dual pickup companion M-85 bass, dual-pickup Starfire bass, D-40-E and F-212-E (electric acoustic flat-tops), and the D-35 Bluegrass flat-top. This catalog also saw the final appearance of a number of models: Duane Eddy DE-400 and DE-500, Starfire II, S-50 Jet-Star, S-100 Polara, S-200 Thunderbird, non-cutaway Cordoba models X-50 and T-50, Jet-Star bass, George Barnes Guitar in "F" and Acousti-Lectric.
This was also the final Guild catalog for very many years to include both electric and acoustic models in the same pages.
