Guild GADJF30E w/ Fishman
Nothing sings out as bold and true as a Guild jumbo acoustic guitar. They are the original Guild flattops, first manufactured in Manhattan in 1954. From the beauty of the Spruce and the elegance of the Rosewood, to the depth of the nitrocellulose finish, Guild stands proudly behind the quality of their materials. Guild jumbo bodies are 17" wide at the lower bout and 21" long. The necks are 25-5/8" in scale with 20 frets and are 1-11/16" wide at the nut with a 12" fingerboard radius. If you're a player who likes the projection of a real jumbo acoustic, these guitars are for you.
The Guild GAD-JF30
The Guild GAD-JF30 was designed utilizing the jumbo maple body that has been in the Guild line since 1954. They use solid flamed maple for the back and sides, a solid spruce top that features scalloped bracing, and then joined the one piece mahogany neck with the traditional dovetail neck joint. For other appointments on the GAD-JF-30 they use ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. Guild continued the use of ebony for the pearl dot inlayed bridge and strap pins, then added wood bindings, and Grover Rotomatic tuning gears. For the best in tone and intonation, they installed a bone nut and bone compensated saddle. For the finishing touches they inlayed classic pearl fingerboard inlays and then pack the instrument in a wooden arched case. A guitar worthy of representing over 50 years of fine guitar building by Guild Guitars.
Guild's best value in jumbo guitars is the JF30, combining the Maple body design of the F50 with a Rosewood fretboard and bridge. This 6-string version of the JF30-12 also features the same body dimensions (17" wide, 21" long and the modern 5" depth) and comes with a solid AA Spruce top with solid curly Maple sides and a laminated arched Curly Maple back. Includes free Guild hardshell case - a $150 value.
