11 on 11/11/11: #10 - Guild T-50 thinline semi-hollowbody from 1982

OK, it's the 11th November 2011, that is 11/11/11, and as such today has been designated Nigel Tufnel Day. To celebrate this day of Maximum Elevenness, we here at Guitarz - for this day only - will be posting an unprecedented ELEVEN blog posts! So, keep tuned throughout the day for eleven weird and wonderful guitars!
This Guild T-50 from 1982 is an absolutely beautiful guitar. It's a semi-hollowbody, thinline, non-cutaway design with timeless classic lines, an almost Art Deco-style pickguard, twin humbuckers and a gorgeous cherry red finish.

The non-cutaway body does seem a little at odds with the date of this guitar, seeing that the 1980s were known for hair metal bands and the rise of the Superstrat and pointy pointy "careful you don't impale yourself" guitars.

This guitar is currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $1490.

Thanks to Jeffrey Jones for bringing this guitar to our attention.
