The AO-5CE is a performance-driven orchestra-style model that features Guild’s signature arched-back body design. The solid Sitka spruce top, laminated rosewood sides and arched back give this small-body guitar a full, balanced sound with excellent volume and projection.
The slim satin-finish mahogany neck and larger medium jumbo frets give it a smooth, comfortable feel and effortless playability. Fingerstyle players will appreciate the extra string spacing that the 1 ¾” nut width provides, while the cutaway body design offers easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. The onboard Fishman® Presys Plus pickup system offers a host of performer-friendly features, including an onboard electronic tuner and anti-feedback control.
Other premium features include a bone nut and saddle, koa rosette, pearl inlays, hand-rubbed stain finish, dual-action truss rod and bolt-on neck construction. Guild lightweight polyfoam case included.
