    Guild S-100 Deluxe STEREO

    Hello, it's my first post here. I just bought a Guild S-100 Deluxe STEREO.
















    Aged, stock, on it's way to me.


    I like very, very much her look.

    I didn't realize the stereo models had a stereo/mono switch on them?

    Thanks guys. Very kind of you.

    I was after some Guild for a while now, because i liked the tone of HB1, but she is the one who won the game.

    Deluxe, for some extra tone, and even rarer, stereo.

    When i saw the guitar, i bought her imediately.

    Yah, welcome aboard!
    Looks relatively well-preserved in spite of the cosmetic issues.
    I thought "Deluxe" meant the Guildsby, or is that little toggle I mention below part of it too?

    First time I can recall seeing that, topo, but I'd bet it's original, it's just got "that look".
    What I just noticed though is that tiny little toggle switch next to the Guildsby's spring.
    Coil tap?
    Is that what dalko meant by "some extra tone"?

    Cool guitar, but I have my doubts about that stereo switch being original. Hans?

    The guitar is on its way to me. I don't have it yet.

    When she will arrived, i, will take some pictures of the control cavity. We will know more about it.

    For the moment, here is what the seller said about it:

    "Original Guild Branded Bigsby and orginal HB-1's. Comes with Mono/Stereo and Phase switching as standard. Killer guitar that is a nice alternative to a Gibson SG ..."

    It was also the first time i saw the picture of a S-100 Deluxe Stereo, and i was looking for everywhere.

    But, as i said before: it's my first Guild, so, i beleive you have more experience than me ...

    I suspect the tiny toggle is more likely to be a phase switch, unless it is an aftermarket addition. The location looks slightly odd, but the stereo / mono switch is occupying where I would normally expect to see one.
