A versatile acoustic electric boasting a true acoustic sound and high-end pickup/pre-amp!
The Guild Traditional Series F47RC Acoustic-Electric cutaway dreadnought is comprised of solid Mahogany back and sides, a solid Red Spruce top, a 3-piece Mahogany neck with a Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The F47RC guitar is outfitted with a D-TAR„¢ Wave-Length„¢ Pickup and Preamp System that offers both mic and matrix signal sources.
D-TAR„¢ Wave-Length„¢ Pickup and Preamp System with Load 'N Lock„¢ Battery Access. The Wave-Length combines a think, piezo under-saddle transducer with an 18v, low-noise, high input impedance preamp, to create a system with twice the dynamic range of typical 9v systems. The 18v preamp is powered by two AA batteries and a voltage converter. With 18 volts, the signal has more headroom, so hard strumming won't distort as easily.
The guitar's preamp also has an input for a second source, like a magnetic pickup or a soundboard transducer. Two adjustable trim pots, one for low frequency shelving and one for high frequency shelving, allow you to fine tune and "set and forget" the bass and treble frequencies to optimize the Wave-Length for your Guild F47RC guitar's size and shape; enabling you to transparently amplify the natural timbre of your acoustic guitar with minimal coloration. The soundhole mounted Volume and Tone controls give the ultimate in final control over your tonal palette. But perhaps the coolest part of the system is D-TAR's new Load 'N Lock system, which allows quick and easy battery changes. Just unscrew the endpin "collar," remove the old batteries, and pop in the new ones. A quarter turn of the collar is all you need to lock them in place.

I bought a Tacoma-built F47RC in the spring of '08. Tried lots & lots of guitars - Martin, Gibson, Taylor, Breedlove, Epiphone, GAD Guilds, etc. - whatever I could find. The Guild(s) just has that combination of string-to-string definition combined with richness that is tough to find in the same guitar (Martins for richness, Taylors for definition, etc.). But Guild puts it all in one box. Great sounding & playing instrument (though they are no longer "cheap").
My Tacoma built Guild f47rc is a fantastic sounding guitar. The Guild quality is fantastic with a sound that can't be duplicated with many in its class. I own Gibsons and Martins and playibility of my Guild is better than anything else I own. I highly recommend this insturment.
The F47rc is another example of Guild quality and sound that is superior to comparable priced guitars..I bought this guitar from MF and it lives up to the Guild reputation of a wonderful American product. This baby rings and projects like no other. I own Gibsons and Martins and I can honestly say that the Guild F47rc outshines them in sound..I highly recommend this instrument.
The Guild F47rc is the best sounding acoustic I have ever played. I own Gibson and Martin acoustics and they can't compare to the tone of this excellent guitar. The projection and clarity is great. I highly recommend this guitar.
I have heard countless positive comments about Guild acoustic guitars, and even more famous people playing some kind of model from the Guild line. This particular model is the most suitable of all the acoustic guitars I looked at so far, because 1) it's built in the USA; 2) the grand concert body sports a deep cutaway that provides access to the higher frets, which I can't find in many other models3) it sports solid Indian rosewood back & sides for a warm tone; 4) the block inlays are made with real mother of pearl;and 5) I can plug it into an amplifier if I perform in public with it. I currently own a Fender Sonoran SCE acoustic-electric guitar and an Ovation Celebrity Deluxe 12-string, and both sound great when plugged into my Carvin SX200 solid state amplifier. There is absolutely NO DOUBT that the Guild F47RC would sound fantastic when plugged in. Therefore, THIS should be my next acoustic, because, of course, all of the characteristics of it are ideal.
