Electrified Version of One of Guild's Original Designs

This Guild M-20E 6-string acoustic-electric guitar marks Guild's return to the US-made model that was the first to roll off the company's Westerly, Rhode Island, factory line in 1967. This stripped-down guitar boasts top, back, and sides constructed of solid mahogany. The M-20E's concert body style's compact dimensions ensure that it's very comfortable to play and sings with a midrange-focused tone that is marvelous for strumming or fingerstyle playing. And the onboard LR Baggs electronics ensure a natural tone when performing.

Guild M-20E 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Straightforward mahogany construction
  • Comfortable concert body
  • LR Baggs VTC electronics
Straightforward mahogany construction

The M-20E's neck, top, back, and sides are constructed entirely from solid mahogany. This tonewood was chosen for its centered tone that exudes warmth without ever becoming muddy, and clarity that never sounds shrill. The rosewood fretboard and bridge further help to enhance the guitar's harmonic overtones, and the M-20E's appearance is as warm and inviting as its tone. Minimal aesthetic appointments give the instrument a vintage look that works as beautifully onstage as it does around a campfire.

Comfortable concert body

Smaller-bodied acoustic guitars such as this Guild M-20E have been a popular option among players since the dawn of the instrument. This concert-style body in particular is a favorite for its midrange-focused tone that helps each note come through loud and clear. This makes the M-20E a wonderful option for fingerstyle players and flatpickers alike. And the guitar's smaller dimensions are very comfortable for the performing guitarist that needs to have the M-20E slung over a shoulder all night long.

LR Baggs VTC electronics

Guild's M-20E 6-string acoustic-electric guitar was built for when you need to perform. The guitar boasts the LR Baggs Element VTC electronics package. This under-saddle pickup system is incredibly popular for the way it senses the movements of your M-20E's mahogany top instead of direct string movement. This helps avoid the sharp-sounding quack that has been associated with the piezo under-saddle design. You'll enjoy a much more natural acoustic-type tone with the Element VTC. And its soundhole-mounted electronics are very low-profile and discreet.

Guild M-20E 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • 6-string acoustic-electric guitar built to vintage Guild specs
  • All-mahogany construction offers a warm, balanced tone
  • Thin satin finish lets the wood vibrate freely
  • Minimal aesthetic appointments offer a vintage appearance
  • Concert body style is comfortable and even sounding
  • LR Baggs electronics sound warm and natural
The M-20E proves why Guild is such a respected company in the guitar industry.

Vintage Dream

I've been wanting a Guild for the longest time. I have been saving my pennies, and waiting for Sweetwater's amazing 48 month financing in order to finally pull the trigger. Christmas came early this year! Aside from this guitar being one of the most beautiful looking instruments I've ever held, it plays wonderfully right out of the box. The midrange is fantastic, and I'm pleasantly surprised with the depth of the low end on this small concert series guitar. I didn't get a whole lot of sleep last night because I couldn't put the thing down. Sadly for sweetwater's sake I don't think I'll be buying another guitar for a long time because this just became my favorite HANDS DOWN! Sweetwater, I love you, my sales tech has always been professional and courteous, and I get my packages 2 day's from the original order and the guitar was set perfectly for me, you guys blow me away every time!
