Guild A-150 Savoy Hollowbody Electric Guitar (with Case)

A Guild classic is back! A single DeArmond Rhythm Chief 1000 floating pickup gives this hollowbody guitar a highly present, snappy tone that's rich and warm.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Solid spruce top Punchy, articulate and warm sound
U-shaped neck profile Boat neck with very woody tone and feel
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
Grover Sta-Tite tuners Great tuning stability and classy looks

The elegant tone quality and design of this guitar will bring real satisfaction of ownership to the most critical player. A truly outstanding acoustic/electric, the A-150 Savoy is a pleasure to see and hear, pairing a wonderfully free-playing late-1950s Guild orchestra model with the distinctive addition of an exceptionally voiced DeArmond Rhythm Chief 1000 floating pickup and a blonde finish. The welcome return of a true Guild classic.

"three minor issues"

This is a beautiful instrument. Three minor issues: 1) The tailpiece can make changing strings extremely difficult. If the little washers on the strings are not lined up right, they get wedged into the narrow space and it's very difficult to get them out. The factory didn't install the strings correctly, so it took me roughly a half hour and a bunch of tools to change two of the strings. 2) The floating pickup floats closer to the bass strings than to the treble strings, so the E and B end are not as loud in the mix. I may insert a tiny piece of foam to correct this. 3) The Guild website invites feedback, but I got no reply.

Musical Background:
