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 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 tortoise shell 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.

Acoustic Matrix VT Undersaddle Pickup System
For your amplified guitar-playing pleasure, Guild has chosen Fishman's classic Acoustic Matrix Natural I preamp with the added benefit of ergonomic, rotary soundhole-mounted Volume and Tone controls. The preamp has the tried and true, flagship acousitc matrix pickup.

Most of the preamp's components are discretely housed within the guitar's body, eliminating the obtrusive preamp hole typically cut into the side of an acoustic-electric guitar.

Guild Acoustic Design (GAD) series guitars are designed to be the right musical tool for the job. High-quality, all-solid wood guitars, they offer you an exceptional value.

Now you can experience the legendary sound of a Guild at a more affordable price than ever, and get a guitar capable of crafting your perfect performance.
