The Guild Custom Shop is proud to present the beautifully crafted and rich-sounding Orpheum series acoustics.
U.S.-built by the talented luthiers of the Guild Custom Shop in scenic New Hartford, Conn., Orpheum series models are designed to stylishly evoke the bygone 1930s-era golden age of U.S. acoustic guitar design and construction. Indeed, you could say that Orpheum models are finely crafted Guild guitars that never were but could have been.
Orpheum Rosewood Orchestra
The Orpheum Rosewood Orchestra (Natural) and Orpheum Mahogany Orchestra (Natural, Sunburst) models rank among the finest Guild auditorium-style guitars ever made. Their Adirondack red spruce tops with scalloped red spruce bracing and solid rosewood or mahogany backs and sides, combined with three-piece mahogany/rosewood/mahogany necks that join the body at the 14th fret, produce warm, balanced and articulate tone with rich bass and singing treble.
Premium features also include traditional hot hide-glue construction, a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with pearl-dot inlays and 12" radius, elegant cream body binding, bone nut and a nitrocellulose lacquer neck finish. Other features include a tortoiseshell pickguard, pyramid-style ebony bridge with bone saddle and pins, Guild-logo Gotoh® SE-700 open-back tuners with cream buttons, and deluxe hard-shell case.
