Love this guitar!


from Pt Pleasant, NJ

Verified Reviewer

Took one of these home with me just two weeks ago, played it at rehearsal that night, and at a gig Saturday night. So versatile, from the clean tone to the dirtiest, played thru my Fender tube amp.
Felt like I've had it for years. Thin body is light enough for an old guy to play all night without pain.
And I have to mention how flat out cool the thing looks! Many compliments. My first Guild, and likely not my last. I'd buy again for sure.

    I purchased this Guild SF lll Guitar several month ago and have fallen in love with it. The guitar has a beautiful finish/look that really captures the eye. It has a warm bright sound and clear tones, good movement on the neck, and is a pleasure to pay. Anybody looking for a hollow body electric guitar, should give a look at the guild SF lll.
