Classic OM orchestra body style
The OM orchestra acoustic guitar design has long been one of the most popular among acoustic guitarists for its balanced tone and clear projection. These qualities have made it one of the go-to constructions for fingerstyle players who really need each note to speak individually and with a full voice. But the OM orchestra body of the OM-140CE is also incredibly comfortable for guitarists who play live. Its compact dimensions hug your body without ever feeling too bulky. This is wonderful for those all-night gigs.
Solid tonewood construction
The voice of the Guild OM-140CE comes courtesy of a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. Sitka spruce is an industry standard for its great balance of stiffness and weight, delivering a loud voice with plenty of character. And mahogany is popular around Sweetwater for its detailed midrange. This combination allows the OM-140CE orchestra to work well when you want to get the most harmonic content while either strumming aggressively or delicately fingerpicking.
Discreet Fishman Sonitone pickup system
Fishman and Guild are two of the most respected names in the acoustic guitar industry. And Guild's quest for quality is why they chose the Fishman's Sonitone pickup system for their OM-15CE. The Sonitone system offers the rich acoustic tone of your OM-140CE through any amplifier or PA. And the design of the Sonitone system is discreet. The controls are accessed via the sound hole, so you won't have to deal with the hassles that side-mounted preamps can sometimes cause in other guitars.
