Guild's great-sounding concert-style acoustic with focused sound and great projection.
The concert-sized Guild GAD-M20 Acoustic Guitar is designed to minimize overtones, boomy bass, and excess reverberation. It's smaller-than-dreadnought body delivers more focused sound and projection. While particularly well suited for fingerpicking, the GAD-M20 guitar's concert body fits into any musical setting.
The solid mahogany top, back, and sides offer crisp, clear tone, with balanced projection right out of the box. The Guild GAD-M20 also has a rosewood bridge and fretboard to produce lasting sustain and Grover vintage-style chrome-plated open-back tuners for precise tuning.
Other distinguishing details include 24-3/4" scale length, 13-3/4" lower bout, a dovetail neck joint, scalloped spruce braced top, mother-of-pearl headstock logo, and mother-of-pearl dot position inlays. Enhancements like cream colored bridge pins with black dots, bone nut and saddle, tortoise shell pickguard, and a factory installed forward strap button with internally braced support make this Guild a real guitar value. Dressed in a high-gloss polyester finish, the GAD-M20 acoustic guitar will instantly become a favorite in your musical collection.

I bought my M20 for a small, comfortable, couch guitar. When I got it, I was surprised and impressed by its clear, bell-like tones and its volume.While the mids and trebles are powerful, the less-powerful bass is easily controlled for fingerpicked country blues. I don't have to mute the bass strings like on my larger guitars. Recording is easy.It's also a mighty pretty instrument.
I don't own this particular model of the M20 - I was lucky to get one of the last M20s made in the RI factory (2000). Mine is a more expensive, flashier model with the fancy Guild headstock. Bling aside, I can tell you that the Guild M20 is one of the most unique-sounding acoustic guitars out there. Its heavy bracing, mahogany top, and very small 00 body gives it a very "dead" balanced tone, with almost no bass. When you strum it, it sounds like a coffee table with strings. This dead, woody sound, however, is the fingerpicking tone I crave, especially since my guitar playing accompanies me singing. If you like a deader, more balanced tone, then the M20 is perfect for you.
I own a Guild GAD M-20 and absolutely love this guitar. I also have a Martin, Taylor and Guild 12-string. My GAD M-20 stays tuned above and beyond the others. I love the tone. . . and it's a lovely instrument to behold. I would not trade my GAD M-20 for anything! You won't regret owning this little gem!
I have owned MANY small bodided guitars in this price range, Martin, Seagull, even a vintage Gibson..this is far and away the best..in fact it compares well to much more expensive guitars.Build quailty is top noch, and the sound is full and complex with excellent projection.Highly recommended
