1995 Guild JF55 – £1799

NEW ARRIVAL  The Guild JF55 is a deluxe version of the JF50, and probably Guild’s best known jumbo model, the classic Sruce / Rosewood combination, making it one of the most popular flatpicking / bluegrass acoustics around. This example has a fair amount of playwear over it’s 25 years, and has benefited from this with a really mature tone, with great depth and warmth. It sounds resonant and punchy, with great clarity and definition. It’s a very responsive guitar, with a very comfortable neck and good playing action. It’s a great looking guitar, the top has turned a nice honey colour and the Rosewood back is beautifully figured. Other than a few nicks and dings, the guitar has a repaired top crack next to the soundhole. It comes in it’s original hard case.
