Guild / T100D Slim Jim / 1965 / Sunburst / Guitar
Built in the Hoboken, New Jersey factory, the Slim Jim is the single coil equivalent to the Starfire 3. In production from 1958 - 1973 it's a very distinctive looking guitar in a very striking sunburst finish. It features a 16" single cutaway body, a bound Maple top, back and sides, bound Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard. The guitar is in great condition, all original with no cracks or repairs - the front shows that it been looked after really well, and the back tells you it's been played a lot with plenty of buckle wear visible. Plugged in, the front pickup is warm and smooth sounding, very bluesy, while the back pickup has a rocky tone with plenty of bite. The guitar has a good weight to it, feeling well balanced, and the neck is very comfortable with a great playing action. The guitar is full of character, and a great way to buy an American made 60's electric without paying a fortune. The guitar comes in a non 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.
