Guild F-55E Acoustic Electric Guitar, Maple Back & Sides, Natural (B-STOCK)

$3,499.00

Manufacturer's Description

The ultimate Guild jumbo is here: the F-55E Maple, featuring a tight-grained solid Sitka spruce top with arched flamed maple back and 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 mid-range, 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-55EMaple 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.

Overall Condition

This is a New B-Stock Guitar with the original box and paperwork. Guild is very picky on its product quality, a little discolored tiny spot or blemish or little finish run on the finish of the guitar. A lot of times we can't even tell what is the difference between these and the A-stock guitars, but despite any blemishes, they sound, feel, and look amazing!

note: The photos above may not be of the exact item you'll receive. The serial number may differ but specs will all be the same. Please feel free to get in touch with us for an in-hand description.
