The first of two pages on Guild flat top acoustic guitars features three models: two 16" wide guitars, the Guild Valencia F-40, and a new model, the Guild Bluegrass (later given the model code F-47), plus the larger 17" wide Navarre F-50.
The Guild Bluegrass was described as follows:
For the bluegrass folk singer, a guitar of haunting tonal beauty, with the lusty resonance that characterizes the musical vigor of this specialized art form. Beautifully proportioned body is 16" wide by 20" long by 4 7/8" deep. Back and sides are of choice Honduras mahogany. Top is of natural blonde fine grain spruce. Back and top are bound with ivoroid. 3-piece mahogany neck with adjustable steel rod. Ivoroid-bound rosewood fingerboard, inlaid with 8 pearloid position markers. Inlaid headpiece. Deluxe nickelplated pearl grip non-slip pegs. Finest quality Guild Strings.
