Slotted-Headstock 6-String MH (2014)

Guild’s beautifully crafted and rich-sounding Orpheum series guitars come from the talented hands within the Guild Custom Shop. In traditional dreadnought, jumbo, orchestra and 000 6- and 12-string models, each instrument stylishly evokes the golden 1930s era of the US acoustic guitar design and construction. Featuring a Red spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, 2-piece mahogany neck with a soft “V” shape and ebony fretboard, this model delivers warmth and punch with a vintage aesthetic. Other standout and traditional features include the use of hide glue and an authentic bone saddle, nut and bridge pins.

Available in Natural and Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finishes.
