Guild has a distinguished reputation for creating top of the line instruments. With over 60 years’ experience, they remain today as one of the most sought after suppliers for musicians who require total quality and exquisite craftsmanship in their acoustic guitars. With the tagline “Guild-Made to be played since 1953” it’s not surprising these guitars have been the choice of beginning and professional musicians for so long. Guild was founded in the 1950’s and has been going strong ever since. During this time they have launched a number of successful guitars, notably the first acoustic dreadnought guitar to incorporate a cut-away in the lower shoulder called the Guild D40-C in 1972. This feature allowed players to have a more usable, higher fret range and remains a staple in many designs today. In the early 2000’s, Guild created a new line of acoustic guitars called the GAD-series which helped propel them to even more success.
Some early iconic psychedelic artists used semi-acoustic guitars in the 60s and 70s, including Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead and Jack Casady of Jefferson Airplane. In more recent years, musicians such as Bruno Mars, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Billy Duffy of the Cult, Eric Clapton and Bryan Adams have all made extensive use of guild acoustic guitars on stage or in the studio.
When deciding which Guild is best for you, take some time to understand the different features each offers to make the best decision. The GAD series are versatile instruments with clear, tight bass and warm, airy sounds suitable for a broad range of styles .The Guilt GAD M-120 and D-125-12 acoustic guitars are easily playable, with smaller bodies and solid mahogany construction to produce warm, balanced sounds with excellent projection. They would be a good fit for beginning musicians, players with smaller hands, and guitarists who perform a wide range of music. More experienced or professional musicians may appreciate the flagship Guild D-55 Dreadnought acoustic guitar. With a heavier rosewood construction, higher tone resonation and distinctive nitrocellulose lacquer finish, it offers a look and sound that is absolutely unparalleled.
A Guild acoustic guitar is an outstanding choice for crystal clear tone and powerful, unplugged playability you can only get from an acoustic guitar. From the stage to the studio, a Guild guitar is sure to help you reach your musical goals.
