The Guild Guitar Company was founded in 1952 in New York by Alfred Dronge, a guitarist and music-store owner, and George Mann, an ex-executive from Epiphone. Although initially producing both electric and acoustic instruments, Guild was taken over in 1995 by Fender who later discontinued production of the electric guitar range.
Guild are a company who seem to completely buck the trend when it comes to building left handed guitars. Unlike other acoustic instrument manufacturers that we’ve looked at who produce nearly all of their models left handed, Guild offer up a measly one single acoustic model to the southpaw fraternity. As a result I doubt we’ll see too many southpaw acoustic players sporting a Guild guitar in the near future!
