Guild Starfire III Bigsby Electric Guitar Cherry Red Mahogany with Case
Guild F65CE OHSC Flamed Maple Top & Back
This is Guild's top of the line F65CE Amb (Amber color) acoustic electric guitar with the original hardshell case. This is the rarer version with a flamed maple top rather than a spruce top. Guitar is actually all flamed maple (top, back, sides, neck and headstock). Top has some light pickwear on and below the pickguard. Back has some light lacquer checking over most of the back. There is a 1 inch piece of replaced binding by the first fret. There are finish cracks where the neck and body meet, and a few dings on the top but nothing through the finish. Tuners have a small amount of freckling. As for the good news, guitar is structurally very sound. Action is excellent, very low and room to go lower but I think it is currently set up as low as you would want to go. Case is in excellent shape. Original Fishman electronics work fine. Serial number is F6501XX, making it a late 1994 or early 1995 model and built prior to Fender's purchase of Guild in November 1995. All in all, this is a fairly rare and hard to find version in very good to excellent condition. See pictures for more detail or feel free to forward any questions. I'm probably making it sound worse than it is, however it is best to list all defects, however small, and you ask questions from there. Check my feedback as I have over 1,000 positive responses with no negative feedback going back to 1999.
NOTE: This is a relist. The single bidder was overseas and sorry but this is a USA sale only. For those of you have forwarded offers, we appreciate your offers but there are no plans to lower the price from the starting bid, which is a more than fair price based on the few comparable F65CE guitars for sale plus the fact this is the slightly rarer maple top maple.
