Serial #: CB000099

Body size at lower bout:16" Scale length: 24 3/4" Nut width: 1 11/16'

Materials: Highly flamed maple top, back and sides; three piece solid mahogany neck; rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl block inlay; 3-ply body binding, bound fingerboard; bone nut.

Hardware: 100% original hardware, including contoured harp style tailpiece; compensated ebony bridge; Grover Rotomatic tuners; art deco stairstep pickguard; Guild adjustable humbucking pickup.

Notes: The Guild X-150 Savoy was introduced in 1954 as a direct competitor to the Gibson ES-175. Almost half a century later, the comfortable neck, smooth tone and handsome Venetian cutaway body make the Savoy an attractive choice for the serious player looking for exceptional value.

This guitar is a rare product of the Corona, California plant, built just a few years before the venerable Guild archtop line was discontinued altogether. This hard-to-find single pickup version is in virtually unplayed condition, with eye-catching flame maple figure throughout. An instant classic, and a true American made professional quality instrument, at a price below most import copies.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel strings (.013-.056). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 5/64" to 6/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.

Case: Original Guild arched black plush hardshell case.
