  • The Guild Custom Shop presents the beautifully crafted and rich-sounding Orpheum series "Slope 14" dreadnought acoustic. U.S.-built by the talented luthiers of the Guild Custom Shop in scenic New Hartford, Conn., 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 Slope 14 offers a distinctive difference for the discerning player--sloping shoulders that gracefully curve away from the neck in marked contrast to conventional straight-shoulder dreadnought design. Further, its three-piece mahogany/rosewood/mahogany neck joins the body at the 14th fret, contributing to a punchy yet warm and well-balanced tone that makes it great as both a lead and rhythm instrument.

    Premium features also include an Adirondack red spruce top with scalloped red spruce bracing, solid rosewood back and sides, traditional hot hide-glue construction, 20-fret ebony fingerboard with pearl-dot inlays and 12” radius, bone nut, elegant cream neck and body binding, 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.
