The Return of a Legendary Guild Design at Affordable Price

Santa Monica, CAAfter over a year of development, the Guild Jetstar is back! Available in three exciting finishes (Black, White and Seafoam Green), the newly reintroduced Jetstar embodies the ultimate retro vibe with a unique body shape that’s been off the grid since the 1960s. In terms of style, this reissue remains faithful to the first iteration of the S-50 Jetstar with a solid mahogany body and set neck. Further period-correct details include six inline tuning machines and Guild’s rare pearloid pyramid logo on a scroll-shaped headstock. The Jetstar features a shallow C shape mahogany neck and pao ferro fingerboard with simple pearloid fret markers. Instead of its original shortened neck, this modified Jetstar has a 25 1/2” scale length for faster feel and improved response. Dual Guild LB-1 Little Bucker pickups bring a usable array of tones from sparkly clean single coil-esque spank to thick and warm humbucker sounds that fatten and sing when driven. Comes inside a Guild deluxe padded gig bag.

Jetstar Black - $599.99 Street • $840 MSRP

Jetstar Vintage White - $599.99 Street • $840 MSRP

Jetstar Seafoam Green - $599.99 Street • $840 MSRP
