George Gruhn, it's a Guild Studio 24 circa 1986 and is a full size acoustic guitar with double cutaways and a 24-fret neck. According to the seller on eBay less than 150 of this particular model were produced. Unlike most other cutaway acoustics, full support under the fingerboard is given right up to the 23rd fret providing "clean, ringing notes that sustain in the upper register". The Studio 24 is built with top grade spruce, highly flamed maple backs and sides, inlaid headstock, inlaid ebony fingerboard and complete grained pearloid binding.
This guitar is currently being auctioned on eBay UK with a starting price of £2,750.
