Guild CE-100 Archtop. 1960

Original Sunburst, very cool worn .

Original "Franz" P-90 type pickup sounds fantastic!

Plays like butter...

Hardcase.

Introduced in 1956, the Guild Capri CE-100 was positioned as a direct competitor to the Gibson ES-175, but today is a much rarer model.

This single pickup version (CE-100) debuted in 1959, and like the Gibson, has a 16" arched maple body, 24 3/4" scale and Florentine cutaway. With its 2 7/8" depth body, the Capri is slightly shallower than its Gibson counterpart, very easy under the arm, and anticipated by decades the slimmer body profile of the D'Aquisto-inspired electrics so popular with players today.

Made in Guild's Hoboken, New Jersey factory, where the firm operated for its formative era from 1956 to 1969. This model has the Chesterfield style headstock, Guild pickguard, and block position markers in the solid Brazilian rosewood fingerboard.

A versatile model, and a best buy in a true '60s guitar, the CE-100 is an outstanding value in a hard-working classic jazz box..
