Santa Monica, CA – Building upon the smash hit of the S-200 T-Bird reissue, Guild has announced two new T- Bird ST models, featuring the same unique, asymmetrical shape, but with a simplified feature sets. Minimalist players will appreciate the added stability and reliability of a stopbar tailpiece and pared down electronic controls, while enjoying the retro vibe.
The T-Bird ST’s dual LB-1 Little Bucker pickups are replicas of Guild’s 1960s smaller size humbucking pickups, offering a range of tones well-suited for a variety of playing styles and genres. 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.
Both models feature vintage C shape set mahogany necks, 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. The T-Bird ST is available in a classic Vintage White, while the T-Bird ST P90 comes in Pelham Blue. A padded Guild deluxe gig bag is included.
