First produced around 1953 the Guild F-50R is similar to their F-50 model, except it has rosewood back and sides. From 1953 until around 1969 this was Brazillian rosewood. This model was discontinued in 1990 but reintroduced in 2003 following the Fender takeover of Guild.
Incredible Guild Jumbo volume and tone. Action and playability on this guitar are second to none!
There are cosmetic blemishes at the top of the headstock (see photos). Otherwise, this is a very clean 2012 example. This guitar and case lived in a smoking household requiring some deodorizing on our part.
Chances are, you won't find a better playing, better sounding F-50R!
