The Westerly Collection: Guild's Historic Transition and Evolution

Craftsmanship, Quality, and Tradition: The Legacy of Guild's Westerly Factory

The Westerly Collection holds a special place in Guild's history, marking a pivotal moment when the company outgrew its beloved factory in Hoboken, New Jersey. In 1967, they relocated to Westerly, Rhode Island. Settling into a former furniture manufacturing building, Guild embraced the expanded space and revolutionized their production layout, surpassing their previous achievements in Hoboken.

With this fresh start, Guild attracted highly skilled artisans and seized the opportunity for growth. Flourishing in their new home, the Westerly factory quickly gained recognition for its exceptional craftsmanship, unwavering commitment to quality, and the introduction of beloved Guild acoustic guitars. Each instrument reflected a dedication to innovation and an unwavering attention to detail.

Drawing inspiration from this golden era, the Guild Westerly Collection carries forward the legacy of impeccable workmanship and unparalleled excellence. Every instrument in the collection combines high-quality materials with classic Guild designs, honoring the tradition of creating remarkable musical companions.
