Guild Announces New Guitars

Guild has been busy lately announcing new models which they showed off at the 2013 NAMM show.

The first was the AD-5CE which is a dreadnought that features their commonly used arched-back body design and a solid Sitka spurce top. Laminated rosewood sides and a slim satin-finish mahogany neck help set the guitar apart. The cutaway makes it easy to play into the upper frets (though many acoustic guitar players tend not to do so). Onboard Fishman pickups and preamp system with on-board tuner and anti-feedback control. One of the guitars I own use a similar Fishman preamp which is good and seems to do a good job with the feedback but leaves a bit to be desired for the range of control on the EQ. 

 

 

The AO-5CE is an orchestra-style model that features many of the same features such as Sitka spruce, rosewood sides and an arched back.

 

If you're desiring a little bit of color in your acoustic, these models also come in satin cherry finish. 

MSRP for both models is $1,099.99 (which usually street for several hundred less). They should be in stores by end of March.
