OVERVIEW

All mahogany, made in the USA with an L.R. Baggs pickup.

Guild’s iconic M-20 was the first guitar off the production line in 1967, when the company had grown so much that they relocated to a new factory in Westerly, RI. Nearly 50 years later, history has repeated itself in a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility in California. The M-20E is a concert-size acoustic-electric guitar built with solid mahogany top, back, and sides, informally nicknamed "the Nick Drake guitar" for its inclusion on the album art for Drake’s album, Bryter Layter.

This model is equipped with the L.R. Baggs Element VTC and features a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, bone nut and saddle, and an extremely light satin finish that allows this guitar to truly sing. The M-20E’s modest appointments include a vintage-style rosette and Guild’s peak logo inlaid in mother-of-pearl on the headstock. Each M-20E comes with a hand-signed, numbered certificate of authenticity, and ships with a hardshell case.

            Comments about Guild M-20E Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            If you're looking for that boxy lonely sound that only a solid mahogany small body can give, this is it! No it's not a perfectly pretty sound, but that's not what I was looking for. I wanted something that can set a melancholy mood for a melancholy song. And the Guild M-20 delivers in spades. It's well built. Required no setup straight out of the case. The neck is a tad thick, but I'm not complaining. It's a great player. I always worry about buying a guitar online. Don't. This one's now a member of the family. If you're looking for a lonely sound and players feel now you've found it. It'll soon be a member of your family too. Buy one and show it some love. You'll be thrilled you did.

                Comments about Guild M-20E Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                Got this by mistake. Was ordering the Guild D-20E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric. My Mistake. Great little guitar but could not deliver the deep quality sound I was looking for. Staff was helpful in replacing it for me.
                When the Guild D-20E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric arrives, will review.
