Guild's new Standard Series F-30RCE orchestra-size cutaway has been something to talk about since it debuted in the Fall of 2010. The F-30R won the “Guitar Player” magazine Editor’s Pick award for its exceptional sound, playability, and affordability.
The F-30RCE Standard is an orchestra cutaway guitar with refined features that make for a player-centric instrument with premium sound quality. It features a solid Sitka Spruce top with Red Spruce bracing and solid Indian Rosewood back & sides that combine with its unique body dimensions to produce a rich, complex sound with excellent warmth and articulation. Its 1 3/4” bone nut and full scale make it ideal for everything from down-tuned fingerstyle pieces to folk style strumming and the onboard 18-volt D-TAR Wave-Length pickup system provides a transparent and natural sound with enhanced dynamic range and headroom for exceptional amplified performance. Other refined features such as a satin finished mahogany neck with slim profile, ivoroid body binding and bone saddle and bridge pins round out the package to create a truly fine instrument.
The D-TAR Multi-Source combines the Wave-Length piezoelectric under-saddle pickup with a miniature condenser microphone. With separate signal sources coming from two different tonal points inside the guitar, and two low-profile knobs for master volume and microphone volume to control the blend of the piezoelectric pickup and microphone, the player has more flexibility to bring out the most natural sound possible from an acoustic guitar when amplifying it.
