T-BIRD ST P90 in PELHAM BLUE

Based on the S-200 T-Bird reissue, the T-Bird ST P90 features the same unique, asymmetrical shape, but with a simplified feature set. Minimalist players will appreciate the added stability and reliability of a stopbar tailpiece and pared down electronic controls, while enjoying the T-Bird’s retro vibe. The dual Guild Franz P90 pickups found on the T-Bird ST P90 are perfect for the player looking for that crisp, vintage, single-coil sound, offering plenty of mid-range output that can be driven to a soaring classic rock tone. The T-Bird features a vintage C shape set mahogany neck, and bound rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl block inlays. Other period-correct details include open gear vintage tuning machines, and famed asymmetrical headstock adorned with Guild’s logo and Thunderbird icon in mother-of-pearl. Available in Vintage White, Cherry, or Pelham Blue.

List Price: $1,110

a closer look at the T-BIRD ST P90

The Guild Franz P90 Soapbar 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 top-mounted Dog Ear version for archtop guitars.
