Guild Acousti-Lectric George Barnes - one of the best guitars to come out of the Guild factory, completely custom-made, based on George Barnes' own specifications. That particular example has a 16" body (most had a 17" body) and was built for Remo Palmier's brother, Paul Palmieri (who also played the guitar professionally) - this model has a distinct clarity, the top vibrates freely due to the clever pickup mount design and the absence of f-holes makes it particularly feedback resistant. George Barnes was a music prodigy, master arranger, superhuman sight-reader, extremely busy studio player and prolific jazz guitarist.
