Guild's great-sounding concert-style GAD-M20E with top-notch Fishman electronics.
The Guild GAD-M20E Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a great value and a worthy addition to Guild's respected acoustic guitar lineup. Built entirely with solid mahogany, the smaller concert body counteracts any tendency to boominess while being very comfortable to play. A rosewood bridge and fingerboard offer plentiful sustain and Grover vintage-style, open tuners keep your sound dead-on.Despite its modest price, the GAD-M20E offers premium construction details including a dovetail neck joint, scalloped bracing on the spruce top, MOP fingerboard dots, a bone nut and saddle, tortoise shell pickguard, and strap button that has internal support. The Fishman Acoustic Matrix VT System has an undersaddle pickup and end pin-mounted preamp with discrete soundhole-mounted tone and volume controls.

This line of Guild guitar just continue to impress. The solid mahogany body, heavy bracing, bone nut and saddle are not features of a guitar at this price point. Yes, it manufactured in China, but Guild knows what they are doing here. I?ve been looking for a small bodied acoustic for small venues and slide blues at a price point that won?t worry me in the clubs. This guitar has the look and feel I need -- the slim, fast neck, the small-bodied rich mahogany sound. And the Fishman system makes this a slam-dunk.
My dad bought me this guitar from a local music store about two years ago. The build quality is impeccable. The neck feels great; not too thick, not too thin. The size was just what I wanted. I had grown tired of dreadnaughts and jumbos and wanted something smaller. The guitar has a big sound even though it's smaller. Treble sounds amazing, not excessively "tinny". Grover tuning heads keep this thing in tune for a LONG time. Mine came with a sharp-looking tweed case to boot. The only negative thing I can find about this guitar is the fact that my strap is a little difficult to put on over the DTAR input jack/strap button, but a little wiggling around and it's a snug fit. The DTAR system sounds really great over my cousin's Kustom acoustic amp. All in all, a wonderful guitar and the best acoustic I've owned. Worth the cash.
Wish it had a tuner.....OK, that's out of the way.Other than not having a tuner there is not a single flaw in this instrument from my point of view. The tone is warm without pinching off the highs and depending on the amp used you can get a fairly good spread of sound variations.Above all else the one thing that sold me on this model was the fact that it actually sounded like an acoustic guitar when amped up. My biggest complaint with any acoustic-electric has always been the reproduction of acoustic tones.Everything else about the guitar spells Guild quality.
