The sweet and balanced tone of a compact orchestra-size acoustic has been a Guild staple ever since the F-30 Aragon first appeared in 1954 as the smallest member of the original Guild flat-top line. Perfect for passionately earnest strumming and delicate fingerpicking, orchestra-size models were the guitars of the folk explosion of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. They’ve been an acoustic mainstay ever since, and Guild continues to offer several finely crafted orchestra models of outstanding sound and playability.
