The flagship jumbo is now available in one of Guild’s most famous finishes: Antique Burst. Paired with flamed maple, the F-55 gets a timeless new look, matching a fundamental aesthetic of the Guild family. The F-55 Maple features a tight grained solid Sitka spruce top with arched flamed maple back and flamed maple sides. Created on the same arch press that’s been a part of Guild manufacturing for decades, the F-55 Maple provides sharply focused trebles and an articulate mid-range, perfect for a full, centralized, harp-like sound. Performers have long revered maple for its ability to sing over a crowded room and resist the feedback problems of boomier, bassier tonewoods, and the F-55 Maple does not disappoint. Elegant cosmetic appointments include classic Guild “V-block” inlays, gold Gotoh hardware, and a beautiful Nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Exceptional build quality and premium specifications make it a worthy heir to the historic Guild jumbo legacy.
