Superb first re-issue of the legendary Guild S-200 Thunderbird, made legendary by Muddy Watters and 40 years later by Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys. 
The DeArmond Gold Tone pups are the last US edition of this wonderful pups. They are somehow similar to Gretsch or TV Jones filtertrons but with higher output. 
The body and neck are both mahogany with a rosewood fretboard with block inlays and a superb perloid Thunderbird logo on the headstock. 
All the guitar lines in the song I posted in the YouTube link were recorded on this superb guitar January- February last year.
I tried to take pictures in different kind of lights because the transparent Crimson Red and the wood grain under it are just superb on this guitar,

I upgraded it with an original 60s Hagstrom Tremar - the original tremolo used on the old Thunderbirds - bought from Albin Hagstrom company, which makes it closer to the original design, imho. 
I changed the knobs with simple black ones, cause I dislike the original, but will offer them alongside the original oblique tail piece pictured in the last image. 

It's equipped with new Elixir 10-46 Strings. 
It also comes with the Thomann Tweed case in the pictures.
It had a repair under the binding near the headstock - the fretboard was unglued probably because of a factory flaw - redone by one of our best luthiers here in Bucharest. You can barely see it and also the whole guitar is now bullet proof - I used it in concerts for almost 3 years and it plays, feels and sounds amazing. It also have some very superficial paint scratches, the most visible being the one near the bass horn. 

I sell it because I own too many guitars (20+) and the last years I got attached to the fender single coils sound and unfortunately I barely use it.
