The new models include five new arched-back acoustics, Starfires, and more.

OM-240E

Five new affordable arched back models join Guild’s Westerly Collection. Guild’s first arched back model appeared in the mid-1950s, a feature that’s become synonymous with the Guild brand ever since. Guild’s newest arched back models are available in four classic body shapes: dreadnought (D-240E), concert (M-240E), orchestra (OM-240CE and OM-240E), and jumbo 12-string (F-2512E Maple). These five guitars feature Guild’s AP-1 pickup, bone nuts and saddles, rosewood bridges and fingerboards, tortoiseshell pickguards, fully bound bodies, mother-of- pearl appointments, and padded deluxe gig bags. As renowned for 12-strings as they are for arched back models, Guild offers the best of both worlds with the F-2512E Maple, built with a solid Sitka spruce top paired with an arched maple back. All other models feature solid Sitka spruce tops with arched mahogany backs. Guild’s signature arched back design allows for great volume and projection, long sustain, and a lush, full sound. Guild continues to play to its strengths, while upholding the same commitment to quality and sound the brand has always been known for.

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.
