    NICE!

    Needs some HB1s though. Any idea what pickups are in there? Man, that thing is clean. What year is it?

    I agree and will be on the lookout for some. They are seymour duncan alnico II pros. The guitar is a 1977 and has been restored. From what I was told it was in very bad shape and the original finish could not be saved. No breaks or cracks. Over time I am going to try and get all the hardware back to the original. I have not had GAS in sometime but the wood on this thing called my name.

    Give Ken Nash a call - he's got a few HB1s.

    I posted pictures of this yesterday, but got the guitar today. This thing is amazing. Not original but nicely restored. Rather than out of phase the toggle is used for split coils. Still trying to figure out how the master volume pot is all that helpful over using the other two pots. I guess the thought is to leave your volume pots wide open so you dont have any bleed off and still be able to bring the overall volume down. I have had a few older Guilds over the years and they all have been well built guitars.
