This unusual design is one from the John Smith archives and it's basically an offset GS1 body with added contours. It's amazing how much of a difference it makes! Otherwise it's a classic Smithy with the 1.5 (ie single coil in the neck, coil splittable humbucker in the bridge) and it's nice and light. If you're looking for an original design with the familiar layout and great performance of a GS1.5, the Guardian is well worth a minute or two of your time!
Originally known as the GS-90 we have updated and relaunched this guitar as the GS Guardian. This modern, slim body, contoured guitar with 24.625″ scale length is proving to be a very popular model. The guitar has unrivalled access to the higher frets through a hand sculpted neck join. Fitted with GSG precision machine heads and a GOTOH 510 adjustable bridge along with GSG coil tapped humbucker pickup as standard, you cannot go wrong! Options on neck, bridge, pickups and colour finishes etc, can be ordered. The guardian comes with the new GSG two way truss rod system and a GSG bag as standard.
