Very nice Quality spruce top with Maple back and sides. There is a made in Japan sticker on the neck of the guitar, The serial number is There are small divots on the front body and a dig mark on the head, which are shown in photos. The Madeira is a fine instrument that will last a lifetime if taken care of. You'd need a Ouija board, not a post. I would be horrified to see my Madeira sold for so little.
I'm missing one of the two adjust screws.
Guild Madeira guitars
Guild Madeira The quality depends on who you ask, model seriescountry of origin and how much it was worn down, cared for, or upgraded. I had it restrung at a Guitar Shop, big for our area ofpopulation and the tech had never heard of Madeira. And it still does. The guitars were Korean-made, long before Korea got their act together as guitar makers. Even on laminate sides, you will see vert-pieces at the neck and front because those are joining pieces, etc… If it does have solid wood sides, the back is most likely solid as well. Basically, you can find good quality Madeira by Guild guitars that are an incredible bang for the buck. Wish I had known that when I was a teenager, there certainly would have been a road trip involving friends, beer, and "dumpster diving"
