Guild Arcos AO-3CE

GUILD® INTRODUCES ALL-NEW ARCOS SERIES

Arcos series models feature Guild’s signature arched-back body design

Guild announces the debut of the all-new Arcos series. The new Arcos models feature Guild’s signature arched-back body design, delivering enhanced volume, projection and excellent structural stability. Three new guitar models offer legendary Guild sound and playability at very accessible price points.

Arcos series models include Guild’s slim, satin-finish mahogany neck for smooth, comfortable feel and effortless playability. Other premium features include a solid Sitka spruce top, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, koa rosette and Fishman® electronics. For added protection, all models include a Guild lightweight polyfoam case.

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

The AD-3CE is a pure-performance dreadnought with a cutaway body design that invites players to venture into the upper regions of its premium rosewood fingerboard. 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.

Also in the series is the AO-3CE, a performance-driven, orchestra-style model with laminated mahogany sides and arched back, and a slim, satin-finish mahogany neck. Fingerstyle players will appreciate the extra string spacing that the 1 ¾” nut width provides, while the cutaway body design offers easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard on this unique small-body guitar. The AO-3CE also includes a Fishman® Presys Plus pickup system, with an onboard electronic tuner and an anti-feedback control.

Guild Arcos Series guitars are available through authorized Guild dealers with manufacturer’s suggested retail prices ranging from $759.99 to $999.99. For more information, and to find a dealer near you, visit www.guildguitars.com.

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
