Guild Arcos Acoustic Guitars

Guild has unveiled the AD-3, AD-3CE and AO-3CE Arcos guitars, the newest acoustic guitar series that feature Guild's signature arched-back design.

Guild Arcos Acoustic Guitar Series

As the name Arcos implies, this guitar series will highlight Guild's arched back body, which is designed to provide enhanced volume, projection and provide better structural stability.

The Arcos series have common features which include solid Sitka spruce tops, koa rosette, satin finish mahogany necks, rosewood fingerboards, rosewood bridges and bone material nuts and saddles. Electronics for acoustic-electric guitars are provided by Fishman.


The AD-3 is the Arcos series basic dreadnought guitar. Its solid Sitka spruce top, laminated mahogany sides and arched back, give it a lush, balanced dreadnought sound with excellent volume and resonance. The koa rosette, pearl inlays and rosewood headcap impart a touch of class and understated elegance.

Its Fishman Presys Plus pickup system rounds out the package with a host of performer-friendly features, such as an onboard electronic tuner and anti-feedback control.

It has a 1 3/4th nut with that provides extra string spacing for Fingerstyle players, and the cutaway body design offers easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboad. The AO-3CE also includes a Fishman Presys Plus pickup system, with an onboard electronic tuner and an anti-feedback control.
