Relatively new in the shop, we haven’t had Guild yet for a full year but the response has been phenomenal! We started with their line of arch-backs deemed the Westerly Collection, after the Rhode Island factory location from 1966 until the end of twentieth century. We then raised the bar to include the 120 line of all-solid mahogany acoustics, several of their eye and ear-catching electrics, and the American designed and made D40 all-solid mahogany and spruce. We’re very proud to be the biggest Guild dealer (at least we think so) in Brooklyn!
Made in the USA in Guild’s Oxnard California factory! This all-solid tone wood dreadnaught features a solid sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, with specially designed scalloped sitka spruce bracing. A beautifully subtle satin varnish finish helps this guitar look as good as it sounds. Also included is a humidified hard shell case.
Other specs include a mahogany C-profile neck, 12” radius, Indian rosewood fingerboard, 25.6” bone nut and compensated saddle, 1.692” nut width and Guild “vintage style” 20:1 tuning machines. This is one of Guild’s finest acoustic guitars in production.
Guild’s 120 line features throwback designs that originated in the Westely, Rhode Island factory. And of course, all-solid African mahogany. A solid top of course paired with solid back and sides. The 120 series is Guild’s most affordable all-solid wood guitars. This is Guild’s classic dreadnought, all solid mahogany. With matching poly foam case.
All mahogany! Solid mahogany! From the Westerly collection the orchestra body shape is our most popular guitar, slightly bigger than parlor-sized and slightly smaller than the dreadnaught. Solid mahogany top, solid mahogany back and sides. As you might be able to tell, we love mahogany! Includes a matching poly foam case.
Guild’s concert-sized all solid mahogany guitar, sometimes referred to as parlor-sized. This small guitar also features Guild’s pickup-system with two “hidden” dials just under the sound hole, for volume and tone. Included is a form-fitting poly foam case.
Guild is famous for their 12 strings and this one doesn’t disappoint. All solid mahogany top and sides, bone nut and saddle and the Guild/Fishman AP1 pickup. Classic huge sound 12 string jangle, this is classic Guild!
A 12-string jumbo? Yes please! Add an arched maple back and solid spruce top, at a price just in under $500, and we are sold. You should be too! Includes matching gig bag.
Another guitar of Guild’s Westerly arch back collection, this dreadnaught features the solid spruce top and hidden Guild AP-1 preamp and pick-up system. What really sets this apart is the beautiful flamed mahogany back and sides. Come and see it for yourself! Of course, it sounds great too, so come and hear it as well!
Guild’s signature arch back guitar, this beauty features (of course) a solid spruce top and mahogany sides, with an arched back. Complete with a bone nut and saddle, the E suffix indicates Guild’s AP-1 pick-up, with a hidden sound-hole mounted volume and tone control. All Guilds include a form-fitting soft case. A fabulous guitar from Guild’s Westerly collection.
The OM-240 is the only model of the esteemed Westerly collection that features a cut-away to access the higher frets. This mid-sized Orchestra model strikes a fine balance between finger picking and full strumming, with all the features of the 240 series—solid spruce, mahogany, bone nut and saddle, Guild’s AP-1 pick-up with sound hole mounted electronics, a matte finish, and a form-fitting soft case.
Guild’s second smallest of the Westerly collection and their true “parlor” guitar is one of our favorites. A compact 24 3/4” scale, bone nut and saddle, and (of course) a solid spruce top with the signature mahogany arched back.
Like the big round look and feel of a jumbo but want it in a more compact variety? The Jumbo Junior is your guitar! This is the smallest guitar of the Westerly collection, with a 17 1/4” body and 37” overall length. Built with a solid spruce top (of course) with mahogany sides and arched back, a Guild pick-up and discreet controls (no square cut out on the side), case and the other standard Westerly features. Guild quality in the smallest guitar of this series.
Guild’s Westerly Collection classic dreadnought with electronics in a left-handed version. Solid spruce top, arched mahogany back with a matching soft case.
This fabulous thin-line hollow body electric is fast and fun. Featuring Guild’s LB1 “Little Bucker” pickups (kind of like a blend between a single coil and a full humbucker), Grover tuning machines and Guild’s heavy duty polished aluminum Bigsby-style vibrato bar and tail piece. This fine guitar comes with a matching hard case.
Our favorite Guild electric, the T-50 Slim rocks a Franz P90 single coil and ultra stylish Guild harp tailpiece and vintage logo pick guard. The vintage sunburst finish and 1 3/4” slim body (it is the T-50 Slim) make this one of the easiest playing and gorgeous looking electric guitars around. Includes a matching hardshell case.
Perhaps Guild’s most straight forward rock and roll machine, the S-100 Polara features two humbucking pickups, a solid mahogany body and neck. With matching and fitting soft case.
