Guild announces the debut of the new Guild Acoustic Design (GAD) series, introducing 19 new guitars in total.
GAD series guitars feature solid tonewoods, dovetail neck joint construction, and features such as a slim, satin-finish neck. The series consists of various different body styles, including Dreadnought, Classical, Concert, and the new Orchestra and Jumbo models with cutaways. Additionally, there are six- and 12-string models available in both acoustic and acoustic/electric versions featuring Fishman electronics.
Inspired by classic jumbo guitars, the F-150R model is a full-bodied acoustic model with a solid spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides. Other features include a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, ivoroid body and neck binding, and mother-of-pearl block inlays. It is also available as the F-150RCE which additionally features a Venetian-style cutaway and Fishman pickup system.
With the F-130CE and F-130RCE, the series offers two orchestra style acoustic/electric models that feature a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, ivoroid binding, mother-of-pearl rosette and inlays, and Fishman pickup system. The F-130CE's solid mahogany back and sides are designed to deliver a strong, articulate voice, while the F-130RCE;s solid rosewood back and sides are designed to produce a rich, complex sound with warm bass and clear mids and highs, according to Guild.
The D-125 dreadnought and its 12-string sibling, the D-125-12, feature mahogany construction with a slim, satin-finish mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, bridge, and head cap.
