In the dinuclear centrosymmetric title complex, [Li(2)(C(17)H(30)N(3))(2)(C(4)H(8)O)(2)], the Li(+) cation is coordinated by three N atoms from two guanidinate ligands and an O atom from tetra-hydro-furan (THF) in a strongly distorted tetrahedral environment. In the guanidinate-bridged THF-stabilized dimer the Li⋯Li separation is short at 2.479 (8) Å.
