1973 Guild F40, F-40, made in Westerly, RI.  Serial No. 800XX.  J-style guitar with maple sides, arched maple back and spruce top.  Inside the guitar is stamped “SPE”, which I believe stands for “Special”.  I believe that this may have to do with the unique figuring on the back and top but can’t say for sure, look at the photos of the top and back.  I have never seen another F-40 with these unique markings!  Beautiful inlay on headstock and the fretboard is inlaid with mother of pearl blocks.  I have owned this guitar since 1986 and have played it a bunch.  The prior owner installed a pickup and drilled the side on the lower bout for a jack.  Obviously this may affect the collect-ability of the guitar but face it, this is not a collector’s guitar as it has not been stuffed under a bed for 30 years!  This is a very sturdy guitar with many miles left on it.  Scratches and finish checking are consistent with a player’s guitar that is 34 years old.  The top is scratched around the sound hole from play and there are a variety of scuff marks and a couple of small areas on the back where the finish has come off. I have tried to show all of this in the photos.  But don’t let these things keep you from bidding if you are looking to play a beautifully well balanced legend!   This guitar has been well cared for although played and played often, (a sure sign of a truly superior instrument).  I have tried to depict the wear in the photos.  This guitar has a strong, full, well-ba
