Guild Baritone Acoustic with Pristine, Authentic Tone w/Guild Deluxe Gig Bag.

Get rich, full low tone with the BT-258E Baritone Acoustic-electric Guitar from Guild. This F-Jumbo body acoustic features rosewood back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top for a stunning blend of low end and midrange that also delivers incredible projection and giant volume — unplugged or amplified. Featuring two extra strings, the BT-258E is tuned to B-E-a-A-d-D-F#-B — five steps down from standard tuning. When strummed or picked, this deep-voiced acoustic makes a wonderful accompaniment guitar for almost any ensemble, adding a unique sonic dimension to any mix. A mahogany neck with pau ferro fingerboard offers outstanding playability and response. And when you plug in, a Guild/Fishman Sonitone GT-1 with volume and tone controls ensure pristine, authentic baritone acoustic tone.

Guild/Fishman Sonitone GT-1: full, dynamic tone

The Guild/Fishman GT1 with Sonicore pickup in the BT-258E is a wonderfully designed system that naturally and fully translates the acoustic tone of this fine instrument. The sound is full and dynamic onstage, and it pairs great with a microphone for recording parts at home or in the studio. Volume and tone controls are mounted directly in the soundhole for easy access, and a look that won't detract from your guitar's natural beauty.

Fine appointments enhance the BT-258E

Guild outfitted the BT-258E with its legendary scalloped X-bracing. This innovative pattern uses crisscrossing, overlapped braces in the body that support better resonance and sustain — as well as promote longevity and durability. In addition, a genuine bone and nut saddle along with a pau ferro bridge support overall resonance and tone. At Sweetwater, we appreciate these added fine appointments for the subtle enhancements they add to the Guild BT-258E.
