Vintage Guild M-80CS 1976, walnut finish, in clean original condition.Features: Double cutaway compact mahogany bodyEbony fingerboard  - full 24 3/4 inch scaleCurved arched topTwin Guild HB-1 humbucking pick-ups with individual adjustable pole pieces       and 3-way tilt adjustmentPolarity reversing phase switchMaster volume controlSchaller machines and Adjustomatic bridgeComplete with original hard case (some localised lifting of black tolex covering, and missing two latch arms to toggle closers).An absolute delight to play. Fast neck. Big, fat, sound generated through the much revered HB-1's.To quote a contemporary Guild reviewer - "both pick-ups will rock your socks off with all the sweet chimey vintage tone you could ever hope to get from a vintage guitar, but the bridge pick-up delivers the treble-enhanced power so often used in classic rock. This guitar rocks hard while being able to ring when it needs to."This guitar is in excellent, all original condition, only a new top nut has been replaced. At the same time all aspects of the guitar were checked through and the instrument professionally set-up. There is some age related checking to the nitro-cellulose finish, and a few small nicks and flakes compatible with a guitar of this vintage.The M-80 really is, as Guild boasted in their 70's advertising, "a mean rock machine", and so tough to source, particularly in this clean, original condition.Please mail any questions. I would prefer collection, but would be pleased to deliver the guitar within around a 100 mile radius of Rugby for the cost of fuel.
