1975 Guild F-50R
What a rare and wonderful instrument this is. An extremely early jumbo from Guild built at the Westerly factory in its early years. This is the model that was used by Dave van Ronk almost exclusively. I search and search for these and they never turn up, but here one is. In excellent condition being all original excluding the Imperial Grover tuners, which were used by Guild but not on this model. Crack free, it is every bit as good as a Gibson jumbo from all perspectives.......maybe better in the sound department. Indian rosewood rims and back with a sitka spruce top and all the design elements used by Guild at this time. It's big, fat and powerful and lovely harmonics and lots of sustain. Just another perfect instrument from Guild in it's Golden Era.
