Guild Guitar Catalogs

Welcome to GAD’s Guilds guitar catalog collection. I’ve spent many years (and dollars) collecting these catalogs for my research of various Guild guitars for my GAD’s Guild articles.   I have physical copies of every catalog shown which were all painstakingly scanned or photographed, then cropped, formatted, and color-corrected in order to be included here.

If you have a catalog that I have marked as Missing and you’d like to share a copy (or sell me your original), please contact me. Also, if you know that the date is wrong on one or more catalogs, please let me know. Most of them are not dated and figuring out what year they’re from can be a challenge.

Note that the Targ & Dinner catalogs are from a distributor and only the Guild selection is included.


Missing: 1953, 1957 (US), 1958 (US), 1959

Last but not least, I must give a hearty thank you to Meghan Donahue who I paid handsomely to scan most of these catalogs. It was worth every penny because there are over 1,200 scanned pages in this collection and it took her weeks.  Colleen get’s a special mention for photographing hundreds of pages from those larger catalogs on my copy strand, too. Having bored college kids around who need money is the best!
