1957 Guild T-100 Slim Jim


Summary: The original Guild T-100, sometimes called the “Slim Jim” model, was a semi-hollow thinline with an arched Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. It featured a single sharp cutaway and one single coil pickup at the neck position. (Reverb.com) This is a great example of this instrument with a beautiful finish and wonderful vintage characteristics.

Cosmetics: This vintage Guild shows normal wear for an instrument from the 1950’s but it also has a ton of charm. The guitar does show checking throughout – especially on the head stock. There are various nicks & dings on this T100 but overall the guitar is in good shape.

Playability: This guitar plays great – the action is comfortable and the frets still have life left in them….the neck angle on this vintage T-100 looks good.
