The Guild Traditional Series F47RC Acoustic-Electric cutaway dreadnought is comprised of solid Mahogany back and sides, a solid Red Spruce top, a 3-piece Mahogany neck with a Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The F47RC guitar is outfitted with a D-TAR„¢ Wave-Length„¢ Pickup and Preamp System that offers both mic and matrix signal sources.
D-TAR„¢ Wave-Length„¢ Pickup and Preamp System with Load 'N Lock„¢ Battery Access. The Wave-Length combines a think, piezo under-saddle transducer with an 18v, low-noise, high input impedance preamp, to create a system with twice the dynamic range of typical 9v systems. The 18v preamp is powered by two AA batteries and a voltage converter. With 18 volts, the signal has more headroom, so hard strumming won't distort as easily.
The guitar's preamp also has an input for a second source, like a magnetic pickup or a soundboard transducer. Two adjustable trim pots, one for low frequency shelving and one for high frequency shelving, allow you to fine tune and "set and forget" the bass and treble frequencies to optimize the Wave-Length for your Guild F47RC guitar's size and shape; enabling you to transparently amplify the natural timbre of your acoustic guitar with minimal coloration. The soundhole mounted Volume and Tone controls give the ultimate in final control over your tonal palette. But perhaps the coolest part of the system is D-TAR's new Load 'N Lock system, which allows quick and easy battery changes. Just unscrew the endpin "collar," remove the old batteries, and pop in the new ones. A quarter turn of the collar is all you need to lock them in place.
