Guild Guitar: GAD-50PCE
by Guitar Guru
”An Exotic Tone Wood Twist”
The Guild GAD-50PCE Acoustic Guitar is a classy cutaway with a tone wood twist that will tickle your musical fancy.
Crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top
to give it the very best in tonal resonance, the GAD-50PCE sports an African padauk back and sides. To those who are unfamiliar with Padauk, there is only this to say. African Padauk is not only a beautiful wood; one that darkens over time from a rich orange to a dark red, it is also one of the most resonant tonewoods on the planet.
The GAD-50PCE uses this exotic tribute to resonance to create a guitar whose notes ring out as if you have struck a gong; or maybe a Tibetan singing bow. The clarity of this guitar’s tone will make every other guitar sound muted and fuzzy by comparison and ensure that you realize that you are holding a great acoustic guitar.
The beauty and resonance of the wood used for this guitar is one of the reasons that the GAD-50PCE costs a bit more than other Guild solid wood guitars. At ~$999 it is not a cheap guitar. But guitar reviews will agree that it is definitely worth the money. It even comes with a deluxe hardshell case
so that you can protect your investment.
For the price you would think that you are getting some fabulous aesthetically grand guitar. And you are – if you appreciate the subtle complexities of natural wood grains. The GAD-50PCE is not a fancy guitar to look at, but its cutaway ensures that it is a comfortable guitar to play, though its dreadnought body can be a bit cumbersome for more slightly built players.
It is not every day that you can get a solid wood guitar
of this quality and have it made of such a unique wood that it will lend your instrument a sound all of its own, but with the GAD-50PCE, that is exactly what you will get.
