An orchestral size that produces strong, focused sound with excellent articulation.
The Guild F-30CE Standard is an orchestra cutaway guitar with refined features that make for a player-centric instrument with premium sound quality.
The F-30CE features a solid Sitka Spruce top with Red Spruce bracing and solid genuine Mahogany back & sides that combine with its unique body dimensions to produce a strong, focused sound with excellent articulation. Its 1 3/4" bone nut and full scale make it ideal for everything from down-tuned fingerstyle pieces to folk style strumming.
The onboard 18-volt D-TAR Wave-Length pickup system provides a transparent and natural sound with enhanced dynamic range and headroom for exceptional amplified performance.
Other refined features such as a satin finished Mahogany neck with slim profile, ivoroid body binding and bone saddle and bridge pins round out the package to create a truly fine instrument.
D-TAR Wave-Length pickup system
The Wave-Length combines a thin, 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. With 18 volts, your signal has more headroom, so hard strumming won't distort as easily. The preamp has an input for a second source, like a magnetic pickup or a soundboard transducer.
Two adjustable trim pots, one low frequency shelving and one high frequency shelving, allow you to fine tune and "set and forget" the bass and treble frequencies to optimize the Wave-Length for your instrument's size and shape; enabling you transparently to amplify the natural timbre of your acoustic guitar with minimal coloration.
