Product Description

Providing the boldest projection available, Guild’s F50 Jumbo Acoustic is one of the original Guild flat-tops. First made in 1954, it reigned atop the Guild acoustic line and would go on to be popularized by exceptional players such as Eric Clapton, who graced the cover of the 1968 Guild catalog with his F50.

Best sounding guitar I've ever owned
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I ordered this guitar based on the price, which was greatly discounted, because the description stated it had a slight blemish. When I received the guitar I immediately was looking for obvious dents or scratches, but I honestly couldn't see any blemishes.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
The finish is A+ in my book with the gold tuners and beautiful abalone inserts in the neck logo and fretboard.
Feel
Was it easy to reach the strings? How comfortable was the playing position?
I think I sat and played this guitar for 3-4 hours. It is truly hard to put down.
Tone
Is the tone well balanced? How does it project?
When I play this beautiful guitar, it's deep rich volume projects out into the room like no other un-amped acoustic guitar I've owned and I have 6 others which are not cheap types either. Needless to say, I was impressed as others have been who have heard it for the first time. Even though this guitar is strictly a non-electric acoustic model, with the jumbo style body, you don't need and amplifier unless your on stage, of course.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish was smooth and even and I found no drip runs or other imperfections I could see or feel. I polish and wipe this baby down after every playing session to maintain it's out of the case beauty.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I think I definitely got the better end of the deal on my model anyway. Even had it not been discounted, it would still have been money well spent at the normal price of sale.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
I had to make an slight tension adjustment to the neck of a quarter turn, because the string action was buzzing on two strings. This procedure was easy on the difficulty scale, but other than that, it is very playable. If your going to play it a lot, I'd recommend going with the D'Addario EXP 16 strings versus the EXP 17's it's shipped with from Guild. You can play much longer without getting sore fingertips and you will lose nothing in sound projection from the guitar.
