This limited version harkens back to the early days of the F-30 with beautifully figured AAAAA-grade maple for the back and sides and an Adirondack red spruce top
Guild introduced the F-30 Aragon, the smallest of its original flat-top guitars, in 1954. Early versions featured a unique orchestra body shape with a spruce top and maple back and sides; it had acquired a mahogany back and sides by 1959, as found on our current Traditional Series version of this model. This limited special-run version harkens back to the early days of the F-30 by returning to maple for the back and sides-beautifully figured AAAAA-grade maple, in this case. With that and a premium Adirondack red spruce top, this is a beautiful guitar with a strong, clear voice.
Other special features include an ebony fingerboard and bridge, tortoise body binding, ebony headcap with mother-of-pearl “Vintage G” logo, 12th fret abalone “G” inlay, custom gold Gotoh® open-back tuners with white “G-shield” buttons, 1.75” bone nut, bone saddle, “Parisian eye” bone bridge pins and a nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Each guitar also includes a Guild leather strap and a Planet Waves® soundhole humidifier.
This one is limited to 20 pieces worldwide. Reserve yours today.

Comments about Guild GSR F-30 Orchestra Acoustic Guitar:
Playing this guitar is almost a sacred experience and truly brings a sense art to making music.
This is the most wonderful guitar I have ever played. I own and play a Martin D-35, J-40 twelve string, several nice electrics and even a Kohno 10 (high end Japanese classical guitar). I play in the classical style to accompany self and others singing and to do some solo work. This guitar is a close to replicating a human voice as any I have played. It plays with beauty and ease, and provides a strong bass and clear, oddly mellow, tenor high end. Over the past several years I have moved from the jumbo/dreadnaught sized guitar (bigger is better) to smaller auditorium sized Guilds. I own this guitar and a GAD version that is fabulous in and of itself, but lacks the sonority of the GSR.
This is beautiful. The spruce top and maple sides and back are made from perfectly matched woods. There is a small amount of salt and pepper, flecks in the finish, right were the neck intersects with the body. All other details are perfect, almost too perfect to play.
This guitar is a one of a kind and worth the investment.
