This Guild Custom Shop Peregrine is in on trade and it is in very nice shape. It shows signs of being played, swirling of the finish along with a few dings and dents (mostly on the back) but nothing too serious or detrimental to playability. The neck is straight the frets are still crowned, and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case.
The Acoustic and Electric worlds have been crossing over for decades now and the Guild Peregrine is one of the cooler examples. This one was made in the Guild Custom Shop just before they went to the Fender Custom Shop. It is easily the finest Peregrine I have played and its quite striking, visually. The Burst on the figured maple top has rich greens and blues before fading to black on the edges. It's a dark and alluring looking guitar with eye-catching aesthetics like the abalone binding.
One of the design elements that was lost on me until seeing one again is the cool, 2-way bridge. It functions with Bridge-Pins just like a typical steel-string acoustic however, it's drilled for thru-body functionality as well! You can use either just the bridge pins, just the string-thru, or both to keep the look as cherry as possible.
You see Peregrines come and go online but not many look like this one! I always wanted one and it's been fun to see this one 20 years down the road. It's held up incredibly well amongst it contemporary's in the Taylor T5 and that newfangled Fender Acoustasonic.
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, cleaning, restring, and set up before being put out on sale. We even put guitars with bad frets through our Plek machine if need be. If this service piques your interest learn more here or give us a call!
