1958 Guild F20 – £1699

NEW ARRIVAL  From it’s introduction in 1956 to 1958 the Guild F20 featured a Spruce top with Maple back and sides, before it changed to the better known Spruce / Mahogany combination. That makes this quite a rare find, and tonally different from it’s later equivalents. The Maple gives a sweeter treble response, while the Spruce top gives punch. Tonally is a little brighter than the later spec, full bodied, well balanced and really versatile. The guitar has a very unusual dark stained finish, giving it the appearance of an all Mahogany guitar, similar to the more famous Guild M20. The guitar’s in very well played condition, with plenty of bumps and bruises, and a comfortable feeling neck with good action. The guitar has an LR Baggs active pickup installed with volume control mounted inside the soundhole and comes in a non original hard case.
