1977 Guild Artist Award
A beautiful instrument, this particular Artist Award plays very well & has a large, open voice. The wide nut width and low profile neck carve makes for wonderful playability. The guitar is very lively when played acoustically, and sounds superb when plugged in. The electrified tone is clear and articulate with lush low end. The 25 1/2" scale really brings out the trebly snap to balance out the boomy voice of the big body.
