"Being one of the best luthiers in the business is something that's easier said than done. Guild has definitely pulled it off, though, delivering world-class acoustic guitars ever since they were founded in 1953. According to their own tagline, Guild acoustic guitars are ""made to be played"" - and when you hear one of these instruments in action, you'll know from the first note that they mean it.
Every instrument has its golden ages, and for acoustic guitars, one of those came from Guild's offerings during the 1970s. The instruments they built then are still widely sought-after today, which is why you'll find plenty of '70s vintage Guild guitars in this section. Try one of these instruments if you're ready to see for yourself how Guild built up its fantastic reputation: the tone and playability really need to be experienced to be believed.
Of course, Guild didn't stop building after the 1970s. Just the opposite, in fact: they've been pushing hard ever since then to keep on raising the bar. That's led to their newer line, the GAD series, which uses modern construction techniques mixed with classic design principles to create guitars that are really exceptional. The GAD guitars are just a few more examples of Guild's impressive craftsmanship; every instrument you'll find here is absolutely a great choice, so you can have confidence in picking out the one that seems perfect for you.
No matter which era of Guild acoustic guitar you settle on, there's no doubt that you'll love your new instrument. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that Guild sets the standard for other guitars to aspire to, and with a ton of vintage instruments to choose from, you've got your choice of generation. From '50s-style to modern-day, they'll deliver a big dose of tone and character that can take your gigs to the next level."
