Music Store Live is proud to present this Guild Custom Shop 60th Anniversary F-30! This "little" guitar has a BIG sound. Upon first playing it, you will be struck by the volume produced by a guitar with this a waist this slender. It is truly amazing and yes, we think this can compete just fine with a room full of dreadnoughts. The tone of this Custom Shop creation is wonderfully full. The lows are smooth and round, the mids are full and warm and the high end is just crisp enough to cut sweetly through the mix. It plays with an ease in every position that is both exceptional as well as classic of Guild. On top of all that, this F-30 is as handsome as can be and never fails to impress. We think this will easily become your number one acoustic guitar.
There could be no more fitting a guitar for Guild to honor its diamond anniversary than this impeccable F-30 Orchestra Model. It combines the craftsmanship of the Guild Custom Shop with some of the finest grade Koa available anywhere in the world today. AAAAA ( 5A ) Koa is not easy to come by and lucky for you it makes one heck of a guitar! The tonal and cosmetic results this guitar yields are awe inspiring. Enjoy!
"The Guild Custom Shop’s first creation is the 60th Anniversary model—a limited-edition run of 60 finely appointed acoustic guitars designed in celebration of Guild’s 2013 diamond anniversary. Based on the venerable Guild F-30 orchestra model, it has a beautiful 5A koa top, back and sides; red spruce bracing; an elegant mother-of-pearl rosette; abalone top purfling; rosewood body and neck binding; and a genuine diamond headstock inlay. Its rich and articulate tone is as stunning as its appearance. The guitar’s three-piece mahogany/walnut/mahogany neck has a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with bone nut and 12” radius, and mother-of-pearl/abalone inlays with Guild’s 60th anniversary logo inlaid at 12th fret. Other premium features include an ebony bridge with bone “Parisian eye” pins, gold Waverly tuners with rosewood buttons, gold hardware, and a natural nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Custom hard-shell case included." ~ Guild
That's right - only 60 of these guitars have been made. Given Guild's rich history and market prominence, this guitar not only sounds and looks incredible but is sure to appreciate in value over the years.
