The new additions consist of the Córdoba Luthier Select Series, Guild Jumbo Junior Reserve Maple, Guild M-25E, Guild Aristocrat, Guild Starfire I, Guild X-175 Manhattan and Guild X-350 Stratford.
A new Antique Burst finish will also be made available to the Guild F55, F55E, F512, and F512E.
Here’s a closer look at the new guitars and their specs:
Córdoba Luthier Select Series
As implied by its name, these guitars (pictured above) are handcrafted by master luthiers. The Esteso model features a choice of either a solid European spruce or red cedar top, with pau ferro back and maple sides. The Friederich guitar comes with a solid red cedar top and solid rosewood back and sides.
Guild F55, F55E, F512 and F512E
The Guild F55 and F512 acoustic guitars now have an additional Antique Burst finish option. These jumbo acoustic guitars feature a solid Sitka spruce top and flamed maple back and sides, along with gold Gotoh hardware. Additionally, the F55E and F512E feature the LR Baggs Anthem Electronics pickup.
Guild Jumbo Junior Reserve Maple
This travel-ready satin-finished guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top and arched flamed maple back and sides. It comes with a pickup complement in the form of Fishman GT-1 electronics, and earns additional style points for its exotic Padauk binding and rosette.
The M-25E is an all-new, all-mahogany concert acoustic guitar that sports the new California Burst finish. A rosewood bridge and fingerboard completes the guitar’s aesthetic while an LR Baggs pickup provides additional options in terms of tone. The M-25E also ships with a hand-signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
The Aristocrat’s hollowbody construction reduces the guitar’s overall weight and improves its feedback resistance. Featuring either a carved spruce- (Aristocrat P90 in Vintage Sunburst), maple- (Aristocrat HH in Snowcrest) or flamed maple- (Aristocrat HH in Trans Black Burst) top, the Aristocrat also comes loaded with either a pair of Franz P90s or Guild HB-2 Alnico 2 humbuckers.
Guild Starfire I
The Starfire I is a more accessible version of Guild’s iconic Starfire guitars. Available in both single- and double cut models, the Starfire I’s features include a semi-hollow construction, thin U-neck profile, 12-inch-radius rosewood fingerboard, Guild Vintage 18 open back tuners, a Guild Vibrato Tailpiece (Starfire I GVT) and Guild HB-2 Alnico 2 humbucker pickups with push-pull coil-splitting.
Guild X-175 Manhattan
The X-175 Manhattan’s hollowbody construction is reminiscent of the original’s design in the 50s and 60s. The guitar comes with a special Malibu Blue finish and features an arched spruce top, three-piece neck, DeArmond Dynasonic pickups and a Guild Vibrato Tailpiece.
Guild X-350 Stratford
Originally offered as a top-of-the-line model in 1954, the X-350 Stratford stays timelessly elegant with its hollowbody construction and spruce top. The spruce tone bar bracing and triple Franz P90 pickups give the Manhattan its iconic sound, and a Guild Vibrato Tailpiece paves the way for expressive playing.
