The Newark St Collection Series Electric Guitar by 'Guild'

A-150 Savoy by Guild
Guild A-150 Savoy options:
 Blonde Blonde  Antique Burst Antique Burst
A-150 Savoy is a part of the newly formed The Newark St series in Guild catalog. This series revives once immensely popular and powerful electric guitars section of the Guild Guitars. Back in 1950s and 1960s Guild`s electrics ruled the scene and were played by some of the greatest names in music. Today, several decades later, Guild launches the Newark St series to reignite the flames of the old glory. First in the line of eight models is A-150 Savoy. An excellent example of a vintage-styled archtop guitar. It comes with a double-cut body made of flamed maple back and sides with a solid spruce sound board on top. Creme binding, black pickguard and a pair of "f" holes decorate the top. Blonde and Antique Burst are the color schemes available for this model and they both come with glossy finish. Bridge is made of rosewood and it features a trapezoid tailpiece in the back. There`s only one pickup on this model, it is a floating single coil in the neck position. Neck is made of three pieces of mahogany and maple and it`s topped with a 20-fret fingerboard made of rosewood. Grover tuners and 24-3/4" scale complete the specs list.

Great quality for $1500.00. I would have liked a treble knob. Feels balanced and the neck radius is not too small.

.I meant to say $1,100.00 instead of $1500.00 for the Guild A150 Savoy

I have been playing for 50 years and have owned many Guild, Gibson, Fender, Epiphone, Heritage and Paul Reed Smith guitars. I now have and regularly play a 1999 Guild X-150D (dual humubucker pickups) and like it. It is a high quality, well built guitar with excellent tuners and hardware. The blond finish shows off the attractive wood. The guitar plays well and has a warm and smooth tone. The neck is great, with excellent fret work. The guitar stays in tune. I usually play using only the neck pickup because I like the warm tones it delivers. However, the bridge pickup also sounds great when you need to cut through on a lead. The guitar is solid and just feels like a quality instrument. It seems to feedback less than many hollow body guitars I have owned. It should last a long time. I have never had any problems with this guitar and the volume/tone pots and selector switch still are static free.

I owned other high end guitars and I believe Guild builds one of the best. It is made in America and will retain its value much better than a cheaper, foreign made guitar. If you are looking for a high quality, versatile, hollow body guitar, you should find a Guild X-150D to play. I think you will like it.
