The S-200 TBird is one of Guild's most iconic, uniquely recognizable guitars. This reissue is an exact replica of the original versions produced between 1964 and 1968, featuring an asymmetrical all mahogany body sure to catch the eye of the guitarist looking to blaze his or her own trail. However, this guitar’s appeal isn’t just about its looks – its unique controls create the widest array of tones offered on any Guild instrument, drawing on its dual Guild LB-1 Little Bucker pickups to achieve almost every conceivable color on the palette.
The LB-1s are replicas of Guild’s original humbuckers, offering an array of tones from sparkly clean single coil-esque spank to thick and warm humbucker sounds that fatten and sing when driven. Switching capabilities include rhythm or lead modes, pickup on/off, and standard volume and tone controls. When engaged, an optional tone capacitor creates single-coil tones while maintaining the hum-free reliability of the LB-1s.
The TBird also features the Hagstrom Vintage Tremar, a reissue of the vibrato system that is considered the crown jewel of many Guild solid body electric models from the 1960s. Along with the authenticity of the Hagstrom Vintage Tremar as a historic Guild feature, this reissue includes mechanical refinements such as fully adjustable spring tension for a user-customizable feel and pitch range, and a locking trem arm for optimal security.
The TBird features a vintage C shape set mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid block inlays. Other period-correct details include open gear vintage tuning machines, and famed asymmetrical headstock adorned with Guild’s logo and mother-of-pearl Thunderbird icon. The S-200 TBird includes Guild’s deluxe padded gig bag.

Comments about Guild S-200 TBird Solid Body Electric Guitar:
I've always admired the original Guild Thunderbirds. The workmanship on this reissue is impressive in both its beautiful finish and excellent action. You must be careful not to hit the off/on switches for the pickups while strumming, lest you abrutly lose all sound...that happened last night. The guitar is fairly light in weight and the neck is comfortable to play. The pickups have good clarity with chords and ample gain for lead stuff. I would buy another if Guild releases this model in Cherry Red.
