Guild is very proud to introduce its new Arcos series models, which offer legendary Guild sound and playability at very accessible prices. All feature the signature arched-back body design first introduced in the 1950s on some of the company’s earliest acoustics, which enhances volume and projection while providing excellent structural stability. They also boast Guild’s slim satin-finish mahogany neck for smooth, comfortable feel and effortless playability.
Other premium Arcos features include solid Sitka spruce tops, rosewood fingerboards and bridges, bone nuts and saddles, koa rosettes and, in some instances, Fishman® electronics.
The AD-3 dreadnought covers a lot of sonic ground. The solid Sitka spruce top, laminated mahogany sides and arched back give it a full, balanced sound with excellent volume and projection. Its slim satin-finish mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard deliver smooth, comfortable feel for effortless playability. Its koa rosette, pearl inlays and rosewood headcap impart a touch of class and understated elegance. Other features such as a bone nut and saddle, hand-rubbed satin finish, dual-action truss rod and bolt-on neck construction round out an outstanding instrument that delivers exceptional value, and it comes with a lightweight Guild polyfoam case.
Its brother, the AD-3CE dreadnought, presents all those features in a cutaway-body model that delivers easy access to the upper frets and a Fishman® Presys Plus pickup system that includes performer-friendly features such as an onboard electronic tuner and anti-feedback control.
The AO-3CE is an orchestra-style cutaway model with a solid Sitka spruce top, laminated mahogany sides and arched back that give the small-body guitar a full, balanced sound with excellent volume and projection.
