  • New, but shopworn (finish cracks on top) — Achieve incredible clarity, balance and volume with Guild's Jumbo F-40, made in Southern California. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top and solid African mahogany back and sides, this jumbo acoustic checks all the boxes for players who prize outstanding projection and enhanced mid-range. Its predecessor, the F-48 Navarre, was only produced from 1972 to 1976, and original versions are a rare treasure. Today's reissue manifests the same vintage charm with tasteful appointments such as a tortoiseshell pickguard, white ABS binding, and Guild's peak logo inlaid on the headstock. Premium appointments — such as an East Indian rosewood bridge and fingerboard, 20:1 open-gear tuners, and a hand-cut bone nut and saddle — all match today's standards for fine acoustics. A satin varnish finish gives this guitar its familiar broken-in look and feel, while allowing the tone woods to "breathe" and reach their sonic potential. 
    The exact appearance of this item may vary.
