The Guild AD-3 Arcos guitar features an arched back body design giving this otherwise no-frills dreadnought a bit of an interesting edge!
The AD-3, instead of focusing on electronics and gimmicky features, the AD-3 focuses on high quality woods and construction with a solid top, rosewood fretboard and mahogany sides ensuring that this dreadnought sings loud and true.
Here's what Guild say about the Arcos AD-3
The AD-3 dreadnought features Guild's signature arched-back body design and covers a lot of sonic ground. The solid Sitka spruce top, laminated mahogany sides and arched back give it a full, balanced sound with excellent volume and projection. Its slim satin-finish mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard deliver smooth, comfortable feel, with larger medium jumbo frets for effortless playability.
The koa rosette, pearl inlays and rosewood headcap impart a touch of class and understated elegance. Other features such as a bone nut and saddle, hand-rubbed satin finish, dual-action truss rod and bolt-on neck construction round an outstanding instrument that delivers exceptional value. Guild lightweight polyfoam case included.
