    Welcome. It looks familiar - 1980's but someone else needs to suggest a model. I find the headstock decoration interesting. I don't recall ever seeing the word "Products" there. Export requirement?

    There’s a number of things that don’t look Guild. The offset dots on the fretboard; the neck carve where it joins into the headstock; the bridge and bridge pickup are not parallel; the tuners; and, of course, the “products”.
    My first instinct is that this is a put together Guild tribute guitar.

    It doesn't look like a Guild to me. The fretboard markings are unfamiliar, and the headstock doesn't look right to me.

    I've certainly not seen it all, but that doesn't look real to me, either.

    It looks like a tribute to the mystery '80s Guild shredder that pops up from time to time.

    Welcome to LTG. Unfortunatelly this is not a Guild guitar. Just a "look alike" guitar.

    Other non-Guild items are a mahogany fretboard and that type of wheel adjuster at the heel truss rod.

    Not knowing much about solid body Guilds, did they ever use a bolt on neck?

    Yes. Many models from the '80s had bolt-ons:

    Scrolling down and finding a beheaded Guild was a little disturbing. Put up a warning , next time !
