Founded in October 1952, Guild Guitars got its start in Manhattan when founder Avram "Al" Dronge - an accomplished banjo player and guitarist who played professionally in New York clubs and aboard cruise ships - launched the new guitar business. Dronge had previously run a successful Manhattan music store in the mid-1930s and this experience set the stage for the Guild legacy.
The company's first catalog and price list in 1954 referred to Guild's flattop acoustic guitars and arch-tops as "The Stradivari of Guitars." Considering the craftsmanship found in these highly collectible instruments, this was not hyperbole. Played by countless artists including Roy Orbison, John Lee Hooker, Merle Travis, Paul Simon, Keith Richards, Buddy Guy, Richie Havens, Bonnie Raitt, Steve Miller, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Doc Watson, Ry Cooder, George Strait, and many others, Guild guitars continue to be distinctive and highly regarded instruments.
