Guild GSR T-500

“The T500, originally built in the early 60s, was an experiment to see if there was an interest in the thinline 17” arch top guitar. The blonde beauty ended up in the hands of Duane Eddy and was the basis of the DE 500 signature model which is one of the most collectable Guild guitars”
