Orchestra MH (2014)
The Guild Custom Shop presents the beautifully crafted and rich-sounding Orpheum series “Orchestra Model” auditorium-style 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.
The Orpheum Orchestra Model ranks among the finest Guild auditorium-style guitars ever made. Its Adirondack red spruce top with scalloped red spruce bracing and solid mahogany back and sides, combined with a three-piece mahogany/rosewood/mahogany neck that joins the body at the 14th fret, produce warm, balanced and articulate tone with rich bass and singing treble.
Premium features also include traditional hot hide-glue construction, a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with pearl-dot inlays and 12” radius, elegant cream body binding, bone nut and a nitrocellulose lacquer neck finish. 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.
