Guild has designed the ideal guitar for those who are looking for a natural sound plugged or unplugged. The F-Series acoustic-electrics are unmistakably Guild. The classic Guild Valencia body shape continues in these modern guitars. The body has been given a custom cutaway and an oval soundhole. The body depth has been reduced, but the feel and sound is still there. The Guild F5ce has rosewood back and sides and a select solid spruce top. The fretboard and bridge are rosewood. The headstock is decorated with Guild's Chesterfield logo and the fretboard has pearl dot inlays. The F5ce also features Fishman's new Prefix Preamp with acoustic-matrix pickup.
