I was watching a repeat of a "30 Minute Music" show here in Wisconsin that featured Willy Porter on solo acoustic, and he was playing a Willy Porter Signature guitar from Guild. When I went to the Guild website it had a link for the guitar, but when I clicked it the page was not there. Does anybody know if this guitar is still made (or in fact was ever made, as the guitar he used on the show may have been a prototype)?

Just curious about the specs of the git, have no plans to buy one. BTW, Willy Porter is an incredible guitarist, and a darn good singer/songwriter to boot.

I think it was part of the contemporary series and that's why it's gone. Grab a contemporary while you can...
