A legend returns in the Guild F-55 Jumbo. This beautifully crafted acoustic achieves incredible clarity, balance, and volume with its combination of classic tonewoods and exquisite craftsmanship. The Guild F-55 Jumbo features a solid Sitka spruce top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides and has the type of projection and resonance that truly fills the room even when unplugged. This gorgeous instrument also features a mahogany neck with a walnut strip and an ebony fingerboard for further great tone and playability. The F-55 also has detailed, vintage appointments like classic Guild V-block inlays, gold hardware, and a beautiful finish.
Exceptional volume and projection
One of the most immediate things that you will notice with the F-55 is the volume you get even with the most moderate strumming. The tonewoods and jumbo body style of the F-55 are built for big sound. You can explore nearly any style on the F-55 — folk, country, rock, and more. The F-55 is also great for fingerpicking. That means you’ll be able to play with nuance, flowing between delicate passages and aggressive runs. Where other guitars may top out and start to sound indistinct, the F-55 remains clear and focused.
Solid spruce top for rich tone that improves with age
Guild knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the F-55, Guild chose a solid Sitka spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid spruce has a bold sound with excellent projection. And because it’s a solid-wood top, the tone of your F-55 will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.
