With their large, rounded bodies, guild’s jumbo acoustic guitars have been prized for their volume, projection, and balance ever since the f-50 model debuted in 1954. The f-150ce upholds this tradition with its solid sitka spruce top, solid rosewood back and sides, elegant cutaway, and powerful guild/fishman ap1 with sonicore pickup. Additional features include a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, and mother-of-pearl rosette. This model also has a 1¾” nut width on a vintage shaped guild neck, iconic chesterfield headstock emblem reminiscent of 1960s guilds, period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and guild’s new premium acoustic gig bag.
The westerly collection pays homage to an important period in guild’s early history, when guild outgrew the beloved hoboken, new jersey factory, and moved production to westerly, rhode island in 1967. Finding a home in a former furniture manufacturing building, guild took advantage of the additional space the new location had to offer, and improved upon the production layout left behind in hoboken.
with a fresh start, highly skilled employees, and plenty of room to grow, guild flourished. It was not long before the westerly factory became renowned for exceptional craftsmanship, quality, and the introduction of many beloved guild acoustics. The dedication to innovation was apparent, with meticulous attention to detail. Inspired by this golden era, the guild westerly collection carries on the tradition of impeccable workmanship and unwavering excellence by incorporating high-quality materials and classic guild designs into each instrument.
