Introducing the Guild F-55E: The Ultimate USA-Made Acoustic Electric Guitar

* NOTE - You will receive the guitar in the PHOTOS

Hey there, fellow music enthusiasts! Have I got some exciting news for you! Feast your eyes on the extraordinary Guild F-55E Acoustic Electric Guitar, the pinnacle of USA-made instruments that will leave you strumming with joy! Whether you're a pro or just starting your musical journey, this guitar is a game-changer.

Unleash Captivating Sound: Solid Sitka Spruce & Flamed Maple Back

Firstly, let's delve into its impressive craftsmanship. The F-55 Maple features a solid Sitka spruce top with arched flamed maple back and sides, meticulously crafted on the renowned Guild arch press since 1985. This creates a captivating blend of tight-grained wood, resulting in sharp trebles and an articulate mid-range, delivering a full, centered, and almost harp-like sound that'll make your heart sing.

Say Goodbye to Feedback: Enjoy Sharply Focused Trebles & Articulate Mid-Range

Secondly, say goodbye to feedback headaches! Performers have revered maple for its exceptional ability to cut through even the busiest of rooms, without the annoying feedback issues often associated with bassier tonewoods. As has been noted, the F-55 Maple lives up to those legendary expectations. It's like having your own musical superhero by your side!

Beauty Meets Performance: Elegant Design & LR Baggs Anthem Electronics Option

Thirdly, let's talk beauty. This guitar is more than just a sound machine; it's a work of art! Dressed in an elegant Nitrocellulose lacquer finish and adorned with classic Guild "V-block" inlays and gold Gotoh hardware, it's a sight to behold. 

Folks, the Guild F-55E is more than just an instrument—it's a piece of history, a worthy heir to the iconic Guild jumbo legacy. So, whether you're a stage superstar or just love strumming by the campfire, this guitar is your new best friend. Prepare to be mesmerized!

When making a warranty claim, it is likely that they will inquire about your use of a humidifier.
