I am very happy to announce that I have bought the perfect guitar.
This was purchased through this site, from the wonderful Richard69.
It is a 1960 T-100 , that also has Starfire on the label.
Everything about this guitar is perfect.

It is lovely. As the proud owner of a 65 Starfire II, I know you’re going to love it.

There's nothing like the patina on Hoboken Guilds, especially the electrics. Play it in good health!

Very cool guitar! Unsolliceted advice : Melita bridges become infinitely more playable if you replace the saddle thumbscrews with flat panhead screws, but they are kind of hard to find.
My '59 X175 has that same bridge. You don't know the size, do you?

I'm afraid I don't.

When Gretsch reissued this bridge in the early 90's, they actually came with an extra set of panhead screws. And then there was the Embiematic bridge, sort of an upscale-milled-out-of-solid-aluminium Melita copy that came with the panhead screws stock and sold them as a replacement part, but they seem to have quit - the website's still up but they're not replying to email or orders.

That’s a beautiful Guild classic. A single PU guitar is very appealing, yours is a good example why. I hope you enjoy it!

That is smoking nice! Enjoy! It's a 1960 and you bought it when it is 60 years old!
