Purchased here at Sweetwater. My Sweetwater Rep is Joseph Secu and he is a pleasure to work with. For this purchase I trusted my knowledge and instincts so I ordered this Guild Newark Street A-150 Savoy in Blond. I wanted a playable acoustic archtop guitar to bring along without an amp. I wanted good tone that only an actual acoustic guitar is capable of producing and the amplifier simply makes louder. I wanted a fretboard that was right and needed no work. While this guitar is not the loudest when played unplugged it is loud enough and at times depending upon how you play it can be very loud unplugged. The actual quality of the tone of each note is so good that I am considering purchasing a second identical instrument. I am very happy with my choice. More than that, I am so satisfied that finally and at last I have the guitar of my dreams. The included case is of the highest quality something you do not see much these day's. I highly recommend this instrument especially if you want excellent playability along with very good tone in a reasonably prices guitar.
