The Guild F-40E is a huge-sounding stage-ready guitar at an unbeatable price.

Made in the USA, the F-40E has the same great materials and construction as its more fancy counterparts (like the F-55) but its minimal appointments help keep the cost well below $2000.

Guild's Description

Achieve incredible clarity, balance and volume with our jumbo-shaped F-40, made in Southern California.

Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top and solid African mahogany back and sides, this jumbo acoustic checks all the boxes for players who prize outstanding projection and enhanced mid-range.

Its predecessor, the F-48 Navarre, was only produced from 1972 to 1976 and original versions are a rare treasure. Today’s reissue manifests the same vintage charm with timeless and tasteful appointments such as a tortoiseshell pickguard, white ABS binding, and Guild’s peak logo inlaid on the headstock.

Premium materials such as an East Indian rosewood bridge and fingerboard, 20:1 open-gear tuners, and a hand-cut bone nut and saddle all match today’s standards for fine acoustics.

A satin varnish finish gives this guitar its familiar broken-in look and feel, while allowing the tone woods to “breathe” and reach their sonic potential.

Each F-40 ships with a Guild archtop wood case with a built-in Humicase® humidification system.

Includes a discreet, USA-made LR Baggs Element VTC pickup is also available.
