Recently traded into the store for a nice PRS, this guitar looks stunning and sounds great. It has been played but well maintained.
Guild's impeccable craftsmanship, coupled with discrete electronics create an orchestra guitar with tremendous sound. The versatile Guild GAD-30PCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar sports an orchestra-style body design. This shape delivers strong lower midranges and versatile dynamics with smaller length, depth and "waist” ideal for acoustic and fingerstyle guitarists.
The GAD-30PCE guitar's cutaway body offers comfortable access to high-register notes. With a solid spruce top for warm, balanced tone right out of the box and exotic solid African padauk back and sides, this Guild guitar produces an exceptional tone.
The rosewood fingerboard and bridge offer clear, lasting sustain, and the 1-3/4" bone nut is comfortable on your fretting hand. Other out-of-the-ordinary details include a dovetail neck joint, a strap button with internal block reinforcement, abalone side dot position inlays, and a mother-of-pearl headstock logo.
Additionally, the acoustic-electric guitar is decked out with ebony bridge pins with mother-of-pearl dots, a mother-of-pearl dotted ebony end pin, bone nut and saddle, wood body bindings, and a tortoiseshell pickguard. If that's not enough, Guild has also graced the GAD-30PCE with a wood mosaic inlay running down the back and dressed the guitar with an antique burst finish.
