    Oh, my bad! Sure, that is not an end of 90ies design...I just looked at the headstock and it somehow looked like the custom shop guitars...Should think before posting...
    The serial number is LL100235, so it is a 1986 guitar if the list is correct.

    So what are the other 3 shown: The first is a 1984 F-45-12CE (S/N GJ100028), the second one is a 1985 F-44C (S/N KH100181) and the 3rd a 1984 FS-46CE (S/N EJ100305).

    Thanks. I was on a plane on my phone and just couldn't see well enough.

    Edit - that's not the right excuse at all since the 25th fret would be one past the octave. I'll blame the free drinks in business class. Good thing I didn't order any guitars! At least I don't think I did...

    No model number given for this one, either.

    Hi guys,

    Good stuff on the model identifications!

    IIRC, Steve Vai is big on scalloped frets on his Ibbys... Don't know what he's done to his Guilds, but wouldn't be surprised if these got the Vai treatment.... Caveat emptor if you're actually interested in buying them.
    Guilds:
    1967 MK-VI Artist Special (Hoboken - Jacobs restoration 2018) - "The Mark"
    12ers:
    1994 JF-30-12Bld (Westerly),
    2006 F-512 (Tacoma),
    2010 F-212XL STD (New Hartford) - "Connie"
    2014 Orpheum 12 OOO SHRW (New Hartford)

    Other 12ers:
    1970 Martin D-12-20
    1980 Ibanez AW-75 (Series I)
    1984 Taylor 655

    That's an interesting point. Except for the blue electric Guild they seem to be "stock", but I could be wrong. Even if I was interested (and I'm not), I am guessing they are out of my price range!

    Wild stash of Westerlies. Vai should have stuck around a couple more years...he almost got the Songbird! even after being the guinea pig ha. the red one looks super cool, however, and might be pretty close to the bird in DNA, or otherwise end result

    Hello Mavuser,

    That red one is an F-44C with added pickup, so basically it's a full 16" body acoustic with a cutaway; very unlike the Songbird.
