The overall condition of this beautiful guitar is excellent. The chambered sound is bright and clear, very live acoustic tones.  Most of these guitars were equipped with Duncan SH-1 humbuckers, but this one has factory-installed P90's. I've taken out the original P90's but have since put them back in. Check the picture of volume pot cavity so you can see current condition.
I'm a humbucker fan, that's the only reason for selling.

Still pictures don't do this finish justice. The colors shift as the light hits the holoflake.

Original Guild hard shell case is included.
