    Saw this on facebook...

    Was this catalog from the Nashville Custom Shop?

    Wasn't there a big hub-bub about pinstriped guitars a while back? And now that is a Sunburst!

    Yikes! All three of them are hideous. I've seen the Bluesbird in the middle before, and finishes like that should be confined to bowling balls.

    That's from the Guild 50th anniversary catalog that came out in 2003. Here's the link to the catalog from GAD's blog:

    I've always assumed those are from Nashville. Here's a tour of the Nashville Custom Shop from, which seems to date it correctly:

    1958 Gibson ES-225T
    2011 Guild F-30RCE

    Gone but not forgotten (Guilds only): 1963 A-50, 1965 X-50BL, 1967 T-100D, 1968 Mark II, 1960's Baritone Ukulele, 1977 S-60, 1984 D-64, 1997 SFII, 1998 SFIV, 1998 Bluesbird Cherry Sunburst, 2000 M-70 Fiesta Red, 2001 Bluesbird P90 Natural

    I knew the JF30 was Bono's already, that was his "Sun" design they painted on it, and yeah the pinstriped SF does have a pretty narrow niche appeal, but then again that's what they were trying to sell, that capability of actually doing it with factory provenance.

    I like the pinstripes and I love the holoflake and Iíve love to score a single pickup one. I have nothing nice to say about that acoustic, though.

    Nothing hideous here, all really beautiful and lustworthy.

    The Silver one really pays homage to the Gretsch Silver Jet or Roc Jet or whatever that was, the Sun guitar is ok with me, quite nice actually, Here Comes The Sun ;) And the Starfire, Wow. I just learned to love pinstriping.

    This may be the first guitar I've liked it on, really nice.

    Any of the above sold then probably worth a mint now.
