1964 Guild Slim Jim T-100

Guild’s Slim Jim T-100 is a fully hollow, 16.5” wide, thinline cutaway electric with a single pickup in the neck position and a captivating dark tone. A very light guitar, it has a warm acoustic resonance and rich unplugged voice that translates well through the single coil pickup. It’s enjoyable to play, comfortable, and has a neck that’s feels fast but isn’t small.

Laminate maple construction with sunburst finish and a bound top. Bound rosewood fingerboard, pearloid inlays and headstock logo. Chromed pickup cover and tailpiece, original hardware throughout. The neck has a medium C carve, much like a Gibson neck of this same year, and a standard width nut of 1-11/16”. Scale is 24-3/4”.

The guitar is in very fine original condition but for damaged finish along its lower edge. There are areas of flaked-away lacquer where we’ve stained the maple to better blend in. The balance of the guitar is in quite excellent shape. Frets show little wear, the neck is true, and playability is good with a fresh in-house set-up and easy action.
