USA-made Jumbo Acoustics from Guild are Back

Guild Guitars

Guild is proud to re-introduce the F-40, a legendary jumbo acoustic that made Guild a staple in so many singer-songwriters’ careers throughout the 60s and 70s. The F-40 gets its incredible clarity, balance and volume from a solid Sitka spruce top and solid African mahogany back and sides. The jumbo frame makes it perfect for players searching for outstanding projection and enhanced bass response. Finishing touches such as an East Indian rosewood bridge and fingerboard, premium 20:1 open-gear tuners, and a hand-cut bone nut and saddle all add to the F-40's classic vibe. A satin varnish finish gives this guitar its familiar broken-in look and feel, while allowing the tone woods to “breathe” and reach their sonic potential.

Timeless appointments on the F-40 include a vintage style rosette, tortoiseshell pickguard, white ABS binding, and Guild’s peak logo inlaid on the headstock. Each F-40 ships with a Guild archtop wood case with a built-in Humicase® humidification system. Finish options include satin varnish in Natural, or Antique Burst with Cabernet back, sides and neck. A discreet, USA-made LR Baggs Element VTC pickup is also available.
