OVERVIEW

A special combination of a solid carpathian spruce top and solid macassar back & sides.

Introduced in 1954, the F-40 Valencia was one of the original Guild flat-top models. Its unique Grand Orchestra body shape features a wide 16 lower bout and a narrow shoulder area (upper bout) that results in a guitar that is incredibly well-balanced, responsive and versatile. This limited special run version of the F-40 model pairs a solid Carpathian spruce top with solid Macassar back and sides to create an elegant and refined guitar with a strong and beautiful voice.

Carpathian spruce (Picea abies) is a superior tonewood that comes from Europe' Carpathian Mountains. With an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and a slightly brighter tap tone than some other types of European spruce, Carpathian spruce is considered by many to be the ultimate top wood for guitars. It has a strong, clear voice with exceptional resonance that results in a touch sensitive and dynamic guitar.

Macassar is used for the back and sides of the GSR F-40. It's a hardwood that comes from East Indonesia and is highly sought for both its striking appearance as well as its tone. It's a little heavier than most tone woods but this only serves to enhance its rich tone.

You will be stunned by how these exceptional tonewoods respond with the F-40' unique shape and dimensions to create one of the most amazing-sounding and visually striking Guild guitars to date!

Other special features include ivoroid body binding, Macassar headcap with pearl logo, ebony fingerboard with pearl œG inlay at the 12th fret, ebony bridge with bone œParisian eye bridge pins, abalone rosette, custom gold Gotoh open-back tuners with engraved buttons, and a nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Each guitar includes a hand-tooled Guild leather strap and a Planet Waves soundhole humidifier. A tortoise pickguard is also included in the case if you wish to install a pickguard on the guitar (professional installation is recommended).
