Default FS: Guild Orpheum Jumbo excellent cond!!

Second Orpheum I'm listing first one went quick. This one is even more rare I would suspect less then 60 of these jumbos made, this thing fills a room. One of the most beautiful Adirondack tops and Mahogany back and sides also extremely light 4.5lbs for a jumbo, extremely impressive build quality. Hide glue construction and all the bells and whistles of a high quality Jumbo. Don't miss this one, might not get a chance to get one again at this price, for sale mostly, maybe consider trades.

Excellent condition. Scratch on headstock from string change can't see it in photos minor, and one small indentation on the top impossible to photograph only seen in the right light and angle, besides that shes mint.


The Guild Custom Shop presents a beautifully crafted and rich-sounding Orpheum series jumbo acoustic. U.S.-built by the talented luthiers of the Guild Custom Shop, Orpheum series models are designed to stylishly evoke the bygone 1930s-era golden age of U.S. acoustic guitar design and construction. Indeed, you could say that Orpheum models are finely crafted Guild guitars that never were but could have been.
This Orpheum model ranks among the finest Guild jumbo guitars ever made. Its Adirondack red spruce top with scalloped red spruce bracing, paired with solid mahogany back and sides using traditional hot hide-glue construction, projects full-bodied tone with a clear and powerful voice.
Premium features also include a three-piece mahogany/rosewood/mahogany neck with a soft-“V” profile and nitrocellulose lacquer finish, 20-fret ebony fingerboard with pearl-dot inlays and 12” radius, bone nut, and elegant cream neck and body binding. Other features include a tortoiseshell pickguard, pyramid-style ebony bridge with bone saddle and pins, Guild-logo Gotoh[emoji2400] SE-700 open-back tuners with cream buttons, and deluxe hard-shell case.

*This model is no longer in production.
