F-40 Valencia (2014)

The F-40 Valencia has a Guild original grand orchestra-style body based on the 1954 version, with a 16” lower bout and slightly narrow upper bout for a unique tone with lots of depth. The scalloped braced red spruce top and mahogany body produces a dynamic range of tones, from warm and intimate to punchy and aggressive. Available with a Natural or Antique Burst top.
