it came from beyonf the 70s!
I really warmed up to 'ugly' guitar shapes in my 30s. This guild S300 is the less common one with the lower output Guild HB1s rather than the 300D that ahs super distrtions. After a short flirtation via my washburns I decided I actually hate super distortions so if you prefer woody PAF-meets-fitlertron tones then keep your eyes peeled for the non-D version or be prepared to change pickups to something else if all you can find is a D version. Ironically the non-D S300 seems to sell for less, I dunno why. The guild buckers were always great pickups. This guitar has the best tailpiece ever. Sits between an SG and Explorer in weight. Nice chunky neck on mine but not SUPER fat... Has the 'fast' Guild nut width, so the string spacing is a bit tight like a late 60s Gibson. If you have fat fingers Guilds are not for you, but I like them. A real rocker.
