Looking for the ultimate jazz guitar? Look no further than the Guild A-150 Savoy Special. This fully hollow guitar features an arched solid spruce top with arched maple back and sides. A period-correct, gold DeArmond Rhythm Chief 1100 floating pickup with adjustable pole pieces sets this guitar apart from other jazzboxes with its warm, quintessentially “jazz” tone that has come to define the genre as a whole. Featuring a set of discrete thumbwheel volume and tone controls tucked under the pickguard, the A-150 Savoy holds all the tools you need to dial in your tone while keeping its elegant minimalist aesthetic intact. Premium features include a special edition, eyecatching Snowcrest White finish, ivory binding, bound F-holes and headstock, mother-of-pearl block inlays, all gold hardware and a traditional Guild harp tailpiece. Also available in Blonde or Antique Sunburst, and a hardshell case is included.

List Price: $2,240
