A 6-string for the Stage or Studio!
Guild's F-130RCE is one of those rare acoustic-electric guitars you can use for virtually any gig, no matter what style of music you're playing or where you're playing. A selection of classic tonewoods further balanced by a midsize orchestra body style delivers extra-clear sound, exceptional comfort, and wonderful acoustic projection. The F-130RCE's rich, bold tone comes courtesy of the solid spruce top and rosewood back and sides. Factor in the mahogany neck with binding for smooth playability, and the Fishman Sonolite pickup system, and the Guild F-130RCE's ready for live performance and session work alike.
Guild F-130RCE 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Midsize orchestra body balances natural volume with exceptional clarity
- Solid spruce top delivers a rich, sparkling tone that gets better with age
- Fishman electronics deliver fantastic plugged-in performance
One of the things that makes the F-130RCE one of Guild's most playable live acoustic guitars is its orchestra-size body. This midsize body style is remarkably comfortable to play, both seated and standing. Its large lower bout provides deep and powerful lows, whereas the slimmer upper bout gives the F-130RCE added clarity in the mid and upper registers. Combined with the wide tonal range of its tonewood selection, the F-130RCE is a truly versatile acoustic-electric guitar.Arched-back jumbo body delivers exceptional volume and projection
You'll be impressed by the volume you can get from the Guild F-130RCE, due to the arched back and jumbo body style. That means you'll be able to play with nuance, flowing between rich, full chords, delicate passages, and aggressive runs. Whereas other 6-string guitars may top out and start to sound indistinct, the F-130RCE remains clear and focused.Solid spruce top delivers a rich, sparkling tone that gets better with age
Guild knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the F-130RCE, Guild chose a solid spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, spruce has a bold sound with excellent projection. And, because the top is made of solid spruce (rather than a laminate), the tone of your F-130RCE will age gracefully, gaining enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.Fishman electronics deliver fantastic plugged-in performance
The Fishman Sonolite pickup system in the F-130RCE features an under-saddle transducer with an end-pin mounted active preamp. This gives the F-130RCE superior onstage sound with the exceptional headroom needed for truly dynamic playing. And, with controls conveniently mounted inside the soundhole, it's easy to dial in your sound.
