Dating acoustic guitars

I have fallen in love with building acoustic guitars.

Finely built acoustic guitars are some of the most beautiful looking and sounding instruments on the planet.

Two other highly reliable resources for dating Guild instruments are The Guild Guitar Book and Gruhn’s Guide to Vintage Guitars, both of which are excellent references that often prove helpful with questions regarding dating, specifications and historical context of many Guild instruments.

Unfortunately, once again, records of Guild serial numbers before 1960 are at best sketchy, preventing us from being able to assure dating accuracy before that year.

That said, the information compiled and presented here is the most comprehensive data set we have for dating Guild guitars.

Please refer to the notes preceding each chart on how to best interpret the data.
