Part of Guild's GAD series, the F130-R is a smaller-bodied, orchestra-sized guitar that provides excellent sonic definition. It makes the most of time-proven tonewoods and preserves Guild's folk history in a modern guitar.
Comfortable Body Shape Doesn't Sacrifice ToneThe F130-R is crafted in the orchestra body shape, slightly smaller than most standard dreadnoughts but maintaining the square-shoulder design. The smaller waist on this model gives it a crisp, bright sound that finger-picking players may prefer.
Traditional TonewoodsGuild has employed the proven combination of a solid spruce top and rosewood back and sides. Used to produce guitars for decades, spruce is known for giving off robust tone and for maintaining clear response when played aggressively, making it an ideal companion for heavy strummers. Rosewood helps to bring out the guitar's low end with pronounced overtones. The F-130R may not get the same depth as a dreadnought or larger-bodied model, but the rosewood helps its bass notes resonate.
Mahogany Neck Invites the HandsThe mahogany neck on the F130-R is set into the body to enhance the guitar's natural resonance. Guild sculpted the neck in a slim profile, making for an easier fretting experience when mapping out complex chords or arpeggios. The satin finish on the back creates a slick playing surface for getting up and down the neck. A 20-fret rosewood fretboard tops the neck.
Features Add CharacterWith attention to detail, Guild outfitted the F130-R with many features commonly found in more expensive instruments. The rosewood bridge is a solid surface for palm muting when strumming, and complements the matching rosewood head cap. That head cap houses six vintage-style open back tuners, which serve as an aesthetic nod to Guild's history of crafting the favorite guitars of many blues and folk artists. A mother-of-pearl rosette elegantly draws the eye to the guitar's soundhole.
