Guild Introduces Custom Shop

A pretty exciting development from Guild is the launch of their new Custom Shop. Many electric guitar manufacturers have a Custom Shop where people can order a guitar just as they want it and the same should apply to acoustics as well. 

New From Fender Reso-Tele, Acoustics and more!

Fender guitars has always been known to make good acoustics at a nice price. I've purchased 3 myself over the years and have always been reasonably happy with them. They've had several releases this year on Custom Shop and regular production models. Here are some new Tele's and Acoustics that you will be able to purchase soon. First off is new signature acoustics for Ron Emory with the "Loyalty" slope-shoulder Dreanought models. One version features a spruce top, mahogany back and sides and mahogany for the neck. Vintage-style burst and butterscotch stain. Both versions feature quarterswan scalloped "X" bracing, herringbone body binding and rosette. Like just about every other acoustic in the world, it feature a Fishman preamp (Isys III) with built in tuner, on-off switch and three-band EQ (which leaves a bit to be desired). 
 

Guild Announces New Guitars

Guild has been busy lately announcing new models which they showed off at the 2013 NAMM show.

The first was the AD-5CE which is a dreadnought that features their commonly used arched-back body design and a solid Sitka spurce top. Laminated rosewood sides and a slim satin-finish mahogany neck help set the guitar apart. The cutaway makes it easy to play into the upper frets (though many acoustic guitar players tend not to do so). Onboard Fishman pickups and preamp system with on-board tuner and anti-feedback control. One of the guitars I own use a similar Fishman preamp which is good and seems to do a good job with the feedback but leaves a bit to be desired for the range of control on the EQ.
