Big tone from a comfortable axe that you can plug in for electric jams.
An orchestra-size guitar with vintage F-30 body style, a solid red spruce top, and solid mahogany back and sides, the Guild CO-2C acoustic-electric features the patent pending Guild® Graphite Neck Block System combined with traditional building techniques for exceptional tone, playability, and longevity. A bound ebony fingerboard, ebony bridge, abalone dot inlays, and ivoroid body binding underscore the Contemporary Series' purpose: To satisfy a market seeking an alternative to high-priced acoustics, with a better price point and a more "woody" tone; also to satisfy players who want a road-worthy guitar without compromising sound and playability.
The modern Guild Neck Block System is designed for more sustain and better clarity, qualities strengthened even further by a bone nut and saddle. The pure, rich tone of all solid woods will only improve with age, thanks to a thin lacquer finish that allows the wood to age naturally, while still providing the needed protection to make the Guild CO-2C guitar road-worthy.

I ordered the CO-1C version which has the rosewood fretboard as opposed to the ebony. The guitar itself was beautiful and sounded great. The downside was that the action was wat too high and the neck felt like a club in my hand...not slim but more like a 50's style Le Paul neck. I had to return it due to a crack in the side of the guitar probably due to humidity problems in storage. This may have been a factor in the high action. If you havelarge hands you'll love it.
