Description

This Guild - Used Artist Award AA-31 from 1997 is a gorgeous archtop with loads of premium appointments and tone woods. Starting with a hand carved bookmatched solid Spruce top, caped off with the blonde Amber finish that really makes it stand out in the typical world of laminated archtops. Paired with a Flame Maple back, sides and neck to complete this stunning combination of tonewoods. Everything is original on this AA-31 with the exception of it's pickup, which has been replaced with a Custom Lindy Fralin PAF humbucker specially made to fit into this slightly smaller than standard pickup design. The mounting system was also altered to accommodate the different pickup mount but cosmetically it's a perfect fit, and sonically brings new life to this stunning guitar. Includes original hardshell case.

All purchases come with a full 7 day evaluation time period after payment in full has been made. An extra 24 hours will be added during the winter season to allow the contents to reach room temperature before opening - the evaluation period does not begin until you've received the instrument.</p> <p>If you're not completely satisfied with the instrument, it can be returned using your preferred carrier for a full refund unless other arrangements have been explicitly made. To return an item, please call us (1-800-747-9980) for a return authorization and pack the instrument in its original carton, with all accessories and paper work, and ship it back to us. (Please note it must be insured for the full sales amount). Just give us a call if you have any questions about correct packing etc. We're happy to help. If the item is damaged while in transit, we will ask you to file a claim with your preferred shipper.
