Guild / F50 / 1975 / Natural / Guitar
Guild have long gone below the radar of high end US acoustics, and the F50 is essentially their version of a Gibson J200 - king of the flat tops - but at a much more affordable price. Visually it has classic good looks, with the instantly recognisable pickguard and bridge, and the highly decorative fingerboard inlays and G brand headstock logo. Featuring a Spruce top and highly flamed Maple back and sides, this guitar has a bright shimmering tone, which is huge yet balanced, and feels like you’re producing a wall of sound - really quite orchestral. This is a great sounding example, full of character, and great fun to play. The guitar is in very good condition, with no cracks, a couple of small areas of replaced fingerboard binding, and lots of cool looking lacquer checking. The guitar is just back from a neck reset and fret crown, so it plays like a dream. It comes in it’s original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
