Here we have a 1959 Guild CE100D Capri in good to very good condition with normal playwear and some modifications described below. This one is not for collectors, though it certainly has vintage vibe oozing from every pore. It’s a real players guitar. Sounds great and plays phenomenally.
Fully hollow body. Quality Grover replacement tuners. 1 5/8 inch bone nut. Mahogany neck with a 24 3/4 inch scale. Neck depth is .875 inches at the first fret and 1.063 at the twelfth fret. Bound Rosewood fingerboard with 20 frets. The guitar has been professionally refretted at some point and the frets are in very good shape with only the most minor denting in the lower positions. Two Van Zandt humbuckers have been installed in the guitar and they are swee-eet. Rosewood bridge with harp tailpiece. Non-original wood truss rod cover that looks really sharp. The guitar has been stripped of its original finish and is now a beautiful natural finish with double bound body. The original headstock overlay has been removed.
This guitar is fast becoming a shop favorite. Grab it before one of the staff members takes it home.
