Sporting classic body shapes, Fishman pickup systems and boasting big baritone sounds, here's your first look at the new lineup of Guild acoustics.
First up is the all-new BT-258E – an eight-string baritone acoustic that boasts big low-end timbres and two additional octave strings for "a bit of sparkle".
Constructed out of rosewood back and sides, a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany neck, this unique offering is also equipped with the Fishman GT-1 pickup system.
Tuned down to standard baritone tuning - B, E, A, a, D, d, D, F# and b – the seventh and eighth strings double up the A and the D to add a thicker, more fleshed-out baritone sound.
Other appointments for the jumbo-bodied guitar include a pressed-back construction consisting of rosewood back and sides, a bound neck and body, and a solid spruce top.
The BT-258E is released March 1 and will be available for $629.
As a second baritone offering, Guild has introduced the BT-240E, which aims to bring a deep, full-frequency baritone voice to your playing.
Dispensing of the doubled octave strings found on the aforementioned BT-258E, this jumbo-sized six-stringer also adopts a pressed-back construction, this time opting for a mahogany back. Otherwise, the specs are the same.
The BT-240E lists for $499 and will be available March 1.
Last up in the lineup is the F-240E – an affordable offering which promises to deliver the recognizable sound of Guild's Jumbo guitars at a player's price.
The big-bodied jumbo-shaped guitar sports mahogany back and sides, a solid spruce top, pau ferro fretboard, and boasts the Fishman GT-1 pickup system under the hood.
The F-240E will list for $399 when it's released April 1.
