Guild unveil new GAD series acoustic guitars

US manufacturer Guild has announced that it has overhauled its GAD series and added new models in a variety of body styles.

According to the firm, the 19-odd acoustic guitar in the new revamped Guild Acoustic Design range will share some features, including satin-finish necks, dovetail neck joints and quality tonewoods.

Among the new models is the F-150R (MSRP £1,054.80), a Jumbo body acoustic guitar with rosewood back, sides, fingerboard and neck, which along with the body shape, should make for a pretty loud acoustic.

Next up, the D-125 (MSRP £526.80) dreadnaught is constructed primarily from mahogany and will have a rosewood fingerboard. This, says Guild, makes it a "versatile instrument… great for a broad range of musical styles."

Finally, the F-130CE (MSRP £850.80) and it's sister model the F-130RCE (£958.80) are orchestra-style electro-acoustics featuring the Fishman pickup system and are constructed from mahogany and rosewood respectively.
