This is a DeArmond Guitar built by Guild Guitar.

An artist hand painted this beautiful Guild guitar with a Beatles Yellow Submarine theme using acrylic paint and several layers of polyurethane clear coat to protect the art.

Because it has been finished and protected with a polyurethane clear coat, you can play this stunning guitar to your heart's content without damaging the paint. Or display it as a one-of-a-kind work of art.

The characters are all true to the 1968 cartoon movie. This guitar has the famous "USA Gold Tone" pickups. These pickups were made in California by Fender. The guitars were crafted in Korea then sent to California for the pickups/electronics installation & finishing as Fender had purchased/acquired Guild at this time.

The guitar sounds fantastic, you won't be disappointed.

A couple of small paint chips were repaired.

Like a Les Paul, the guitar has a mahogany body with a maple cap. Set Maple neck with rosewood fretboard. Chrome hardware. Tuneomatic bridge, and as a gigging Beatles-Band musician, I improved the guitar by replacing the original "D" Harp tailpiece with a Gibson Les Paul stop tail piece. The original tail piece is included in the sale of this guitar. I also upgraded this guitar with the "String Butler". This accessory keeps Les Pauls (and this guitar) in tune much better as it allows the guitar strings a straight pass-through-the-nut. You can bend the"G" string all day and stay in tune.
The neck is glued on - not bolted on. A glued-in neck helps produce better sustain.

This guitar is an earlier version of this series, and made in the Korean Fender factory and bears the Guild Logo.

Comes with a very nice canvas gig bag.
