OVERVIEW

The welcome return of a true Guild classic.

Includes case.

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

          The guitar arrived, well packed by Musicians Friend. The guitar comes with a very well made hardshell case. I opened the case and my first impressions were that it was a very nice guitar, but the action and setup made the guitar unplayable out of the box. Usually I do my own setups but this was beyond my ability. I took it to a local guitar technician and he made it right. Now it plays very well and I enjoy it. I would have gave it a 5 but it was a big disappointment not being able to play it for 2 weeks while it was sorted out.
