This was one of the last instruments to come from Guild's Westerly, Rhode Island, plant.    It has been used a little but is as near to Mint as you can get with just a few very light and hardly noticeable polishing swirls and some some light marking on the pickguard  -  that's all.    

Gently flamed maple has been used for the top, back and sides with a three piece, highly flamed, Maple neck.    The fingerboard is Rosewood with mother of pearl block inlay and a bone nut.    All hardware is 100% original and gold plated, including Guild adjustable humbucking pickups. etched harp style tailpiece and Grover Rotomatic tuners.    The carved, compensated bridge is in solid Ebony.    Body size at lower bout:16" x 2 1/2" thick.  Scale length: 24 3/4"   Nut width: 1 11/16'

Guild stopped making this model a few years ago, so prices are now rising and can only go up in value as those in the know start to search for these much under-rated guitars.  

Thinline Manhattans in this condition are very hard to find and are highly sought after.     Whilst a great Jazz guitar,  this gorgeous twin pickup model makes it very versatile.
