The Friederich guitar comes with a solid red cedar top and solid rosewood back and sides.

MSRP: $3,475-$4,025

Additionally, the F55E and F512E feature the LR Baggs Anthem Electronics pickup.

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.

Guild M-25E

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.

MSRP: $2,255

Guild Aristocrat

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.

MSRP: $1,115

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.

MSRP: $695-$835

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.

MSRP: $2,100

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.

MSRP: $2,100
