This example dates to 1975 and is in fantastic condition, it features a 15 1/12” wide Spruce and Mahogany body with a Mahogany neck. The fingerboard and bridge are Indian Rosewood. Appointments are elegantly simple with a natural peg head with Guild logo, bound top and back, Mother-of-Pearl position dots punctuate the Rosewood fingerboard and a tortoise Pickguard. Thanks to the longer scale the guitar has great definition wether picked or strummed, there is a surprising level of headroom given the guitars size. There are a great range of tones to be found from warm and mellow to growling and punchy. The guitar has a 42.7mm nut with a medium C profile neck that measures 21.49mm at the 1st fret. The guitar has good fret height with a very playable action with room on the saddle to adjust.
Coming with a Hiscox Case this 1975 Guild F-30 is an excellent alternative to the venerable Martin OM, that wants for nothing, at an excellent price for a near 50 year old handmade American instrument.
