Dates of manufacture:
GUILD made the CE-100D (Capri) between 1952 and 1975. It was a jazz archtop like the CE-100 Capri but with two pickups. From 1952-1962 the pickups were two single coils and from 1962-1975 they were humbuckers. Some of these came with factory fitted DeArmond single coil pickups.
Guild describe the CE-100D as follows in their 1975 catalog:
CE-100D Clear, pure sound from every note on the fretboard, with a resonance you can tool as you play. Lyrical phrasing seems to flow naturally. Your drive seems to build more effectively when you settle into an up-tempo groove. This is a guitar for the player working on jazz concepts and execution.
