This is a cool and rare version of the M-80. It has the thin, un-bound body, ebony fingerboard, and Dimarzio pickups (both with 12 adjustable poles). The pots date to 1977 and the serial number on the back of the headstock starts with LL (Guild’s prototype designation) and dates to 1981. The knobs and strap buttons have likely been changed. The brass nut may be original, but I’m not sure. There’s a separation at the seam on the back of the neck where Guild inlaid a small piece of Mahogany into the maple wood. You can feel it, but I don’t think this is a big deal. The frets and board are in great shape and this guitar plays easily with nice, low action. The coil tap only works in bridge and middle positions. The guitar weighs in at 7 lb 14 oz. The guitar has normal dents, dings and checking. Cool and rare.
