Beautiful full sized Guild M-65 with the Franz single coil--made in the USA--1958 is the first year they made the M-65 and this is the full sized version. My luthier borrowed this for a gig and ended up keeping it for about 4 months--he fell in love with it and would have bought it if finances allowed--but once i got it back i noticed how he'd gone completely over it with new strings and a wonderful set up with perfect action--truss rod is working and the saddle has more room for adjustment--it plays and sounds like a dream and it is an exceptional blues guitar despite having only one pup--the Franz is perhaps the best single coil on the planet--certainly it's my favorite single coil sound. The guitar is from the first year of issue--1958 and has been played--it has lots of checking--some dents and dings--all pictured-- but nothing structural and the neck is tight--the angle dead on and the brazillian rosewood fretboard in good shape--the frets have more life than i expected--at least 50% remaining and unbelievably the binding is in great shape--tuners work perfectly. The hard case is in excellent shape and protects the guitar but is likely not original.
All in all a wonderful iconic early Guild priced to sell. Thank you for looking--no reserve.The item "1958 Guild M-65 Freshman All Original w Hard Case" is in sale since Wednesday, June 21, 2017.
