Guild reveals the new F-30CE orchestra-style cutaway

In the April 1953 issue of Musical Merchandise Magazine, a brief ad appeared marking the debut of a brand-new company: “A new corporation, known as Guild Guitars Inc., with headquarters at 220 Fourth Ave., New York, N.Y., has been formed to manufacture high-quality guitars, including Spanish and Hawaiian electric — solid wood body electrics, amplifiers, cases and strings.”

Today's Guild is as dynamic and prolific as ever! They continue to champion the timeless history and heritage of old-world craftsmanship, modern design innovation and solid value that has become synonymous with the Guild name.

The new F-30CE Standard is no different. This is an orchestra cutaway guitar featuring solid sitka spruce top with red spruce bracing and solid genuine mahogany back and sides that produce a strong, focused and articulate sound due to its unique body dimensions. It’s a versatile guitar thanks to its 1 3/4” bone nut, which makes fingerstylists and pickers alike feel at home. For electronics, Guild decided on an 18-volt D-TAR WaveLength pickup system that 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.

In a continuing quest for operational excellence, Guild has moved in recent times; from Corona, California to Tacoma, Washington in 2005, and most recently from Tacoma, Washington to a newly acquired facility in New Hartford, Connecticut in 2008 - all in an effort to provide musicians with the best Guild guitars ever!

Whether it's a 12-string jumbo, a dreadnought, a small-body acoustic or one of their new GAD Nylon/Classical Series acoustics, Guild guitars remain among the most sought after instruments in the world. There's really nothing quite like the strong, balanced, crystal-clear sound of a finely crafted Guild acoustic guitar.
