The guitar head is like a real head. Without it, your guitar is basically useless and unplayable.
The Head Stock
The head stock of the guitar is (depending on the guitar) usually a rectangular piece that holds your tuning keys. Here, the strings of your guitar wind around the pegheads. These keep your strings tight and in place, so that when you move the pegheads, tuning is possible. Without the head, your guitar is basically useless. The head is also the most abused part of a guitar.
Tuning keys. A vital component of your guitar. If damaged or used improperly, the guitar will not be tuned, and your playing will suffer.
With a real solid Sitka spruce top and Guild’s iconic arched back, the Jumbo Junior Mahogany acoustic-electric guitar stands out among travel guitars. Along with the solid wood top, this compact guitar offers such premium features as a real bone nut and Guild’s AP-1 piezo pickup system for great plugged-in tone. The Jumbo Junior body style appeals to those who love the look of a jumbo, in a smaller size that’s more comfortable for most players. Whether you’re searching for your first guitar or a travel guitar that’s made to a higher standard, Sweetwater can highly recommend the Guild Jumbo Junior Mahogany.
Solid wood top will sound even better as the years go by
An acoustic guitar’s top plays a huge role in the overall tone of the instrument, and that’s why we’re pleased to see the Jumbo Junior Mahogany is topped with a real solid piece of Sitka spruce. Solid wood tops don’t just sound richer than composite tops – they actually sound better the more you play the guitar. While the Guild Jumbo Junior Mahogany sounds great now, you’ll notice more harmonic complexity and sonic range after playing for a few years.

- Compact acoustic guitar with the look of a jumbo in a more comfortable size
- Solid Sitka spruce top will gain harmonic complexity as it ages

Guild’s iconic arched back makes its return in the compact Westerly M-240E acoustic-electric. The purpose of this trademark feature is twofold: principally, it reduces weight and increases live projection. But it also pays tribute to some of Guild’s popular models, like the D-25 and F-30. The result is a great-playing, easy-traveling guitar with Guild’s unmistakable look. The Westerly M-240E harks back to Guild’s golden-era flat tops with some exciting vintage specs, including a concert-sized body made from premium woods, a classic Guild C-shaped neck, and a retro red tortoiseshell pickguard. The M-240E includes the AP-1 pickup for a clean sound that plugs straight into a PA.

An acoustic guitar is a guitar that produces sound acoustically by transmitting the vibration of the strings to the air—as opposed to relying on electronic amplification (see electric guitar). The sound waves from the strings of an acoustic guitar resonate through the guitar’s body, creating sound. This typically involves the use of a sound board and a sound box to strengthen the vibrations of the strings.
The main source of sound in an acoustic guitar is the string, which is plucked or strummed with the finger or with a pick. The string vibrates at a necessary frequency and also creates many harmonics at various different frequencies. The frequencies produced can depend on string length, mass, and tension. The string causes the soundboard and sound box to vibrate, and as these have their own resonances at certain frequencies, they amplify some string harmonics more strongly than others, hence affecting the timbre produced by the instrument.
