Orchestra size, solid sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, and a multi-source pickup system.
Guild Standard Series guitars represent the essence of the Guild acoustic legacy. With their supreme playability, understated elegance, and unmistakable full and balanced sound they are the quintessential Guild acoustic guitar. The F-30 Acoustic-Electric Guitar with DTAR-MS is a unique orchestra style guitar with refined features that make for a player-centric instrument with premium sound quality.
This F-30 features a solid Sitka Spruce top with Red Spruce bracing and solid genuine Mahogany back & sides that combine with its unique body dimensions to produce a strong, focused sound with excellent articulation. And its 1 3/4" bone nut and full scale make it ideal for everything from down-tuned fingerstyle pieces to folk style strumming. 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. This F-30 Acoustic-Electric Guitar is equipped with the D-Tar Wave-Length Multi-Source pickup system for precise amplified sound reproduction.
D-Tar Wave-Length pickup and preamp system
The new Multi-Source combines the popular Wave-Length pickup system with a condenser microphone for versatility, flexibility and, of course, the most natural sound possible from your acoustic guitar.
The Multi-Source starts with the Wave-Length unitary design, piezoelectric co-polymer under-saddle pickup coupled to an 18-volt, low-noise, high-input impedance preamp with twice the dynamic range of typical 9-volt systems. The 18-volt preamp is powered by two "AA" batteries. With 18 volts, your signal has more headroom so hard strumming or plucking won't distort into piezo "quack" as easily.
With the addition of the highly-efficient miniature, omni-directional electret condenser microphone, you can amplify your acoustic guitar with startling clarity and accuracy. The mic is nestled in a special absorptive visco-elastic polymer shock mount for optimal isolation. Two low-profile knobs allow for master volume and microphone volume. Dial the microphone in to add just the right amount of "air"; dial it out to control feedback, if necessary. The microphone channel has two stages of low frequency roll-off to combat any tendency towards low frequency feedback. Also, full coverage copper shielding on the pickup insures immunity to external noise fields. This system is quiet.
