Guild F-55E Maple Blonde Jumbo Acoustic Guitar - Natural

Guild

The ultimate Guild jumbo is here. The F-55E Maple Jumbo acoustic-electric guitar features a tight-grained solid Sitka spruce top with arched flamed maple back and flamed maple sides. Created on the same arch press that's been a part of Guild manufacturing since 1985, the F-55E Maple provides sharply focused trebles and an articulate midrange, perfect for a full, centralized, harp-like sound. Performers have long revered maple for its ability to sing over a crowded room and resist the feedback problems of boomier, bassier tonewoods, and the F-55E Maple does not disappoint. Elegant cosmetic appointments include classic Guild “V-block” inlays, gold Gotoh hardware and a beautiful nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Exceptional build quality and premium specifications make it a worthy heir to the historic Guild jumbo legacy. The F-55E Maple Jumbo comes in a natural finish and is equipped with L.R. Baggs Anthem electronics for accurate tonal reproduction.
