1956 Guild CE 100 archtop #3019 was first introduced in 56′ as Guilds answer to the Gibson ES 175. This particular guitar has a rich history in that it was made during the highly desired New York era and is also one the first of the transitional CE 100’s in terms of pickup placement.
Great "woody snap" to her when played acoustically and when plugged in, the original Franz P90 pup drips with sweet blues and jazz tones like you would expect.
1 11/16ths at the nut, 24 3/4 scale, 16 1/4 wide and 2 7/8ths deep. An extremely comfortable and versatile archtop. Great for blues or jazz.
Neck straight, good frets, no cracks or repairs, finish has no checking back and front. Binding was professionally redone by JP Guitars, archtop maker in Puyallup. Otherwise, all original and clean.
Comes with non original hardshell case.
