  • Arcos Series guitars feature Guild’s signature arched-back body design. First introduced in the 1950s on some of our earliest acoustic guitar models, the Guild arched-back design enhances volume and projection while providing excellent structural stability.

    All Arcos Series models feature Guild’s slim satin-finish mahogany neck and new larger medium jumbo frets for smooth, comfortable feel and effortless playability.

    Other premium features include a solid Sitka spruce top, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, koa rosette and Fishman® electronics. An affordable guitar doesn’t have to be a compromise, and Arcos Series guitars offer legendary Guild sound and playability at a very accessible price.
