Orpheum Jumbo

$4,799.99 List Price

The Guild Custom Shop presents a beautifully crafted and rich-sounding Orpheum series jumbo acoustic. U.S.-built by the talented luthiers of the Guild Custom Shop, 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.

This Orpheum model ranks among the finest Guild jumbo guitars ever made. Its Adirondack red spruce top with scalloped red spruce bracing, paired with solid mahogany back and sides using traditional hot hide-glue construction, projects full-bodied tone with a clear and powerful voice.

Premium features also include a three-piece mahogany/rosewood/mahogany neck with a soft-“V” profile and nitrocellulose lacquer finish, 20-fret ebony fingerboard with pearl-dot inlays and 12” radius, bone nut, and elegant cream neck and body binding. 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. Available in Natural and Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finishes.
