T-50 Slim in Vintage Sunburst

Non-cutaway model with thinbody arched maple top. Guild’s T-50 is based on a mid-1960s T-50 model and features an arched maple back, maple sides, and a sleek, Vintage Sunburst finish. With beautiful vintage details like the Guild harp tailpiece, iconic center-raised headstock and ivoroid binding, the T-50 harkens back to the classic Guild vibe of the 1950s and ‘60s. Low output single-coil pickups and an easy-to-amplify 1 3/4” body depth complete this guitar, which promises to offer another generation of guitarists the distinctive Guild styling and voice.

A Closer Look at the T-50 Pickup

The Guild Franz P90 Dog Ear single coil pickups have been offered in many electric guitars throughout Guild’s history. Originally known as “Frequency-Tested” pickups in their early years, these P90-style gems were first manufactured by the Franz company in New York. The Franz P90 is a faithful reproduction offering the classic tone profile of the original. The alnico 5 magnets and wide bobbin platform produce a detailed, crisp tone with plenty of output and sustain, creating a vintage voice suitable for any style. Also available as a Soapbar version for use in solid body guitars.
