F-55 or F-55E MAPLE in NATURAL

Series: Guild USA

The ultimate Guild jumbo is here: the F-55 Maple, featuring a tight grained solid Sitka spruce top with arched flamed maple back and maple sides. Created on the same arch press that’s been a part of Guild manufacturing since 1985, the F-55 Maple provides sharply focused trebles and an articulate mid-range, perfect for a full, centralized, harp-like sound. Performers have long revered maple for its ability to sing over a crowded room and resist the feedback problems of boomier, bassier tonewoods, and the F-55 Maple does not disappoint.

Elegant cosmetic appointments include classic Guild “V-block” inlays, gold Gotoh hardware, and a beautiful Nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Exceptional build quality and premium specifications make it a worthy heir to the historic Guild jumbo legacy.

Available in Natural finish and with LR Baggs Electronics.

MSRP: $4,380
