Comments about Guild F-40 Grand Orchestra Acoustic Guitar:

This is an absolutely awesome guitar and I am confused as to why it is not more popular. The tones this guitar produces are absolutley gorgeous!

I have owned this guitar for a few months, and the red spruce is starting to open up nicely. The guitar has an amazing amount of dynamic range and sounds great strummed pr fingerpicked.

This guitar has the depth of dreadnaught without the boom, and the sensitivity of an OM. love it!

This guitar is well worth the money! Do not hesitate to pick this up!
