Overview

This marks the welcome return of a highly popular semi-hollow Guild classic, with a graceful double-cutaway thinline body and incomparable tone and feel.

Other premium features include a rock-solid three-piece neck, special vintage-style LB-1 "Little Bucker" pickups and the classically brilliant finish. Includes hardshell case.
