Retrofret Stock # 7378. Guild T-100D Model Thinline Hollow Body Electric Guitar (1966), made in Hoboken, NJ, serial # EE-1529, sunburst lacquer finish, laminated maple body, mahogamy neck with rosewood fingerboard, original black hard shell case. The T-100-D "Slim Jim" Guild was one of Guild's 1960s stand-bys, a bargain in a professional grade guitar with most of the design features of the popular Starfire series at a slightly lower price. The thin-line 16" single-cutaway body is sunburst-finished maple with bound top and unbound back. The pickups are Guild's thin white plastic and metal covered single-coil units, nicknamed the "Mickey Mouse" pickup by the company's employees. The tailpiece is the standard Guild harp-shaped unit paired with a traditional wooden adjustable bridge. The bound mahogany neck has a dot-inlaid rosewood fingerboard and the headstock has the standard mid-'60s Guild plastic overlay with "Chesterfield" column inlay. This guitar has a brighter, snappier sound than the Humbucker equipped Starfires and is quite a versatile instrument, excellent for everything from country to garage-band rock. An excellent player and still a very good value in a 1960s vintage hollow body guitar.Overall length is 41 1/2 in. (105.4 cm.), 16 1/4 in. (41.3 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 1 3/4 in. (4.4 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 24 3/4 in. (629 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/8 in. (35 mm.). Very clean overall, with all original finish, fittings, and hardware except for one pickup mounting screw (which is hidden under the pickguard anyway). We got this guitar from the original owner, who explained that in the late '60s he decided to install a different pickup in the neck position, and started to enlarge the cavity, then changed his mind. This resulted in the pickup mounting hole being slightly cut away on one side, but this is not visible at all, as the original pickup ring covers it completely. Apart from this one invisible anomaly, this is as nice an example of this model as we have had, with some light wear visible -- mostly typical scrapes and dings to the unbound back edges. There is also a spot of belt buckle wear to the center of the back. An excellent player, and very cool '60s Guild complete with the OHSC. Excellent - Condition.
