Guild Guitar History

Alfred Dronge founded the Guild Guitar company in 1952.

Alfred was a keen guitar player and music store owner. His partner George Mann was a former owner of Epiphone Guitar Company. 

A year later the first Guild Guitars were manufactured. As Dronge was a big jazz fan he’d put all his time into producing a full-depth hollow body electric guitar.

Throughout the 1950s Guild started experimenting with the first flattops and acoustic archtops. Legendary guitar model like the X-175 Manhattan, M-75 Aristocrat, F30, F40, and the F50 were born.

In 1956 it was time for a move. Dronge took the company from Pearl Street, New York to Hoboken, NJ. After this move, the company went from strength to strength. Hiring people who would see Guild produce some of the most popular guitars in the market today.

In 1966 the company moved to Westerly, Rhode Island, and the first guitar out the door was the Guild M-20. 

1970 saw the unfortunate death of Alfred Dronge. Leon Tell takes over as Guild President. 

The 70s saw mass popularity in the Guild 12 string and Jumbo-sized acoustic guitar. The whole range of solid bodies was modernized and reissued, creating the M-75GS and M-75CS. 

The first Guild Dreadnought was produced featuring a cutaway style (the D-40C) and the first 12 stringed G-212 and G-312)

During the 80s, Guild had to change their style of guitar in line with the music scene. With Heavy Metal and Hard Rock owning the radio waves, Guild started to adapt. The X-82 Starfighter, SB-66E Bladerunner, and SB pilot basses were created. 

The 80s also saw a big change in the Guild acoustic guitar. They created the flattop D62, D64, D66, F42, F44, and F46. 

In 1990 Guild had another member of Blues Royalty use one of their classic 12 strings. Stevie Ray Vaughan plays a Guild JF6512 on MTV Unplugged. 

Slash once designed an acoustic and electric together on a napkin. He needed to change between the two instruments quickly during a GnR song. Later a green Godzilla version of this guitar was produced and can be seen with him in later GnR videos. 

In 1993 Brian May and Guild produced a series of guitars based around May’s classic ‘Queen’ Electric Guitar. 

1995 Fender buys the Guild brand. 

In 2001 Guild was on the move again, this time from Westerly, RI for a short stop at Corona, CA.

In 2004 production moved again to Tacoma, WA. It was here Guild stopped the production of the Electric Guitar. 

During the 2000s the GAD ‘Guild Acoustic Design’ was born, guitars based on the iconic American designs.

2013 saw the creation of the Guild Custom Shop and celebrated 60 years with an anniversary guitar model.
