Eastman PCH3 GACE Grand Auditorium Steel String Guitar

The grand auditorium body used on the Eastman PCH3 GACE is comfortable and versatile, and takes cues from another very popular brand;  until recently, many guitars were based on classic Martin and Gibson designs.   It performs well for both fingerstyle and strumming and the solid Sitka spruce top has good dynamics and clarity.

Guild GSR X180 Archtop Electric Blonde, 2013

Guild GSR X180 Archtop Electric Blonde, 2013

Here’s a wonderful rarity and a natural blonde, a Guild GSR x180 archtop electric with a Spruce laminate top, dating to 2013. GSR stands for Guild Special Run, and this example is number 11 of 20 built. Originally, acoustic archtop guitars used solid, carved Spruce tops paired with solid, Maple for the sides and hand carved back. However, once pickups and amplifiers became more available and standard equipment, it was discovered that the tonal subtleties of the solid Spruce top could be overwhelmed by feedback.
