With this Guild CE-100D Capri electric guitar, you may own a piece of hollowbody guitar history. Something that the Westside Music Studio guitar lovers adore about the entire Newark St. Collection is that it allows us all to possess legendary Guild guitars from the 1950s and 1960s. From its genuine Guild tailpiece to its vintage headstock inlay, this CE-100D faithfully recreates the original mid-’60s Capri on which it is based. Its 3.125″ depth is extremely comfortable in your lap, and the sharp Florentine cutaway allows for easy access to the top frets. When it comes to vintage tone, the Guild CE-100D Capri’s Anti-hum dual-coil pickups will not disappoint.
