Dating A Vintage Guild Guitar By Serial Number

Finding the year of manufacture of your Guild guitar is imperative in order to figure out its value. Guild manufactured guitars from the early 1950s until today! Guild’s electric guitars were often the guitar of choice for many serious jazz players of the 1950s, but their fine acoustic guitars are what most people think of when they hear the name “Guild” today.

Figuring out the year your specific Guild guitar was made can be quite a difficult endeavor, and we recommend seeking expert advice if you believe the guitar is of great value to ensure that the price accurately reflects the model/condition. This is especially true for Guild guitars made before the 1960s, as records are either unreliable or missing entirely. The best we can do for these is to reference the approximate last serial numbers for this timeframe listed in the Guild Guitar Book by Hans Moust. Here are the approximate serial number ranges for Guild guitars from 1952-1960.

Made 1952-1960:
1952: 0-1000
1953: 1000-1500
1954: 1500-2200
1955: 2200-3000
1956: 3000-4000
1957: 4000-5700
1958: 5700-8300
1959: 8300-12035

Guild guitars made after 1960 often have a serial number specific to their model. The guild guitars website has a very handy chart to help with deciphering this very confusing serial number system.

Your Testimonials!

Joe came to my home and helped me with an appraisal. Instead of just giving me a number, he helped me understand why my guitar had the value that it had. Super helpful. Thanks!

Joe was very kind to me and made sure I understood everything about my brother’s guitar collection. He paid me more than 4 other guitar shops offered. He surprised us by singing one of my brother’s favorite old songs while playing his old guitar.

Friendly, responded quickly, prices seem to be best around. Best of all a set up means you get a setup, not just a big box guitar retail shop raising your action and saying the buzz is gone. Solved an immediate problem I had with a LP kit build where one PUP and the middle did not work. Solved on spot in 15 mins. Completed set up in two days. Now I have the weekend to play with my new creation. Will definitely be back again!!”
