The right Guild guitar for any occasion.

The exquisite Guild GAD-30RE Acoutic-Electric Guitar descends from a rich historical lineage of exceptional orchestra-style acoustic guitars. Boasting a classic orchestra-style body with a solid spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides, the GAD-30RE guitar looks as good as it sounds.

Appointments on the Guild GAD-30RE guitar include a dovetail neck joint, ornate mother-of-pearl position inlays, strap button with internal block reinforcement, abalone side dot position inlays, mother-of-pearl headstock logo, ebony bridge pins with MOP dots, ebony end pin with MOP dot, bone nut and saddle, wood body bindings, tortoise shell pickguard, and back center wood mosaic inlay. A Fishman Matrix under-saddle pickup with endpin jack helps voice the GAD-30RE on stage or in amplified performance.

Guild Acoustic Design (GAD) series guitars are designed to be right for the job. They are high quality, crafted with all-solid wood and offer exceptional value. Experience the legendary sound of Guild at a more affordable price than ever, and get the guitar that will help you craft the perfect performance.

Comments about Guild GAD-30RE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Pros: This guitar is very well built, has excellent choice of wood, is very well priced, has a great finish, and its tone is amazing too. The neck is one of my favorite parts. It is slightly narrow and D shaped, and greatly increases the guitar's playability. Stays in tune for a good amount of time. This guitar is also lightweight, compared to other acoustics which are bulky and on the heavy side.It also comes with a nice case.

Cons: Nothing really, but the electronics are not amazing. Changing the batteries is also a hassel as it is uner the top of the guitar. The only way to comforatably change it is to remove the strings. The strings that come with the guitar should also be replaced to elixirs which greatly improve the sound.
For an Indian Rosewood guitar at this price, you can't go wrong. The electronics are okay, however the natural sound of the guitar compensates.
Excellent wood selection, amazing finish, mother of pearl inlays give a great aesthetic touch to the guitar. Sunburst color is great as well.
For Indian Rosewood is one of the best deals. Its not laminate rosewood, its solid.

Great guitar

Comments about Guild GAD-30RE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I just got one of these guitar. I love it, except for the Fishman system in it. I'm probably going to switch it out for an LR Baggs or something. But besides that the guitar is awesome. Built solid. The finish is awesome. Nice case too. I would suggest getting the regular GAD-30R and putting the system of your choice in it.
