Acoustic Guitar magazine features a review of the Guild F-30CE Standard guitar in its September issue.
“It is evident that great care was taken in the making of our F-30CE, a product of Guild’s New Hartford, Conn., production facility, which has been in operation since 2008,” notes reviewer Adam Perlmutter. “The gloss finish on the body is perfectly applied and buffed, and the neck’s satin finish is similarly well executed. The frets are impeccably crowned and polished, and the bone nut and saddle cleanly cut, precluding the adjustments commonly needed to make a brand new guitar more playable. A peek inside the guitar reveals no hint of laziness, either; the bracing and kerfing are smoothly sanded and undetectably glued.”
The review also includes a breakdown of its sound, playability and D-TAR® Wave-Length™ electronics. AG‘s review concludes with:
“It has a superb, balanced tone when fingerpicked and works nicely for strumming as well. A great-sounding electronics package makes this fine guitar even more of a winner.”
