NAMM Day 2: Guild announces new acoustic models

Guild has announced that it will be showcasing new acoustic models from its Arcos and GAD lines at the Winter NAMM show.

First up in the Arcos series, the AD-5CE dreadnought features Guild's signature arched-back body design with a solid Sitka spruce top, laminated rosewood sides and arched back. The slim satin-finish mahogany neck and larger medium jumbo frets give it a comfortable feel, while the cutaway body design gives easy access to the higher register of the fingerboard.

The AD-5CE comes with a Fishman Presys Plus pickup system with a host of performer-friendly features including an onboard electronic tuner and anti-feedback control. Other premium features include a bone nut and saddle, koa rosette, pearl inlays, hand-rubbed satin finish, dual-action truss rod and bolt-on neck construction.

Next up, the AO-5CE is an orchestra-style model that features Guild's signature arched-back body design with solid Sitka spruce top, laminated rosewood sides and arched back. The slim satin-finish mahogany neck and larger medium jumbo frets give it a comfortable feel while fingerstyle players will appreciate the extra string spacing that the 1-3/4" nut width provides and the easy access to upper frets thanks to the cutaway.

The onboard Fishman Presys Plus pickup system offers a host of performer-friendly features, including an onboard electronic tuner and anti-feedback control. Other premium features include a bone nut and saddle, koa rosette, pearl inlays, hand-rubbed stain finish, dual-action truss rod and bolt-on neck construction.

In Guild's GAD line, the company has announced that the D-125 and M-120 guitars are now available in a satin Cherry Red finish, and feature new variants, the cutaway electric D-125CE (Pictured below) and non-cutaway electric M-120E guitars, which both feature Fishman Sonitone under-saddle pickup with end-pin mounted active preamps and volume and tone controls.
