Custom color's rarity, light weight and sound make of this guitar a winner.
Excellent action, smooth and easy maple fretboard with frets in good condition.
This model was conceived as a reply to the ES 175, but its early Guild humbuckers give a strong and distinctive personality.
Great jazz and blues guitar, all original including the frets. Figured ash body, two-tone sunburst finish, maple neck and bakelite parts.
This guitar, besides its striking beauty and great sound, has some transitional peculiarities: its three pickups are all dated Oct 15th '64, but one is an old-style black-bottom with yellow stamped date, the middle one is an early grey-bottom with the same yellow stamp (and that's the first time I see a grey-bottom pickup with the yellow stamped date), and the third one is a grey-bottom with the same date, but penciled instead... Another almost-transitional feature is the pickguard, one of the earliest white guards introduced in late '64, instead of the green one more commonly associated with Spaghetti Logo and clay dots.
