OVERVIEW

Vintage jazz guitar tone and style from a brand that helped define it.

The elegant tone quality and design of this guitar will bring real satisfaction of ownership to the most critical player. A truly outstanding acoustic/electric, the A-150 Savoy is a pleasure to see and hear, pairing a wonderfully free-playing late-1950s Guild orchestra model with the distinctive addition of an exceptionally voiced DeArmond 1000 floating pickup. The welcome return of a true Guild classic.

    Comments about Guild A-150 Savoy Hollowbody Archtop Electric Guitar:

    This is guitar indicates that Guild gets it as far jazz musician needs and desires. This guitar has that light clean tone of the 50's Kenny Burell sound. The neck is average but not to big or unwieldy. I played one recently in NYC and I would have bought it had I the money. It is not that expensive and is perfect for local gigs and students who want to get that jazz sound.
