One of Guild's Original Designs

This Guild M-20 6-string acoustic 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 a top, back, and sides constructed of solid mahogany. The M-20'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. The Guild M-20 6-string acoustic guitar offers vintage-style looks, feel, and tone.

  • One of Guild's first acoustic guitars
  • Straightforward mahogany construction
  • Comfortable concert body
One of Guild's first acoustic guitars

The Guild M-20 6-string acoustic guitar is a modern version of the very first model to ever be produced by Guild's Westerly, Rhode Island, factory in 1967. And it appropriately coincides with the reintroduction of US-manufactured instruments for Guild Guitars. Even many of the materials and machines used in the crafting of the M-20 acoustic guitars came from the original Westerly factory and were responsible for many of the company's earlier models. Sweetwater is proud to offer you this piece of Guild's history.

Straightforward mahogany construction

The M-20'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-20'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-20 have been a popular option among players since the dawn of the instrument. Its concert-style body in particular is a favorite for this midrange-focused tone that helps each note come through loud and clear. This makes the M-20 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-20 slung over a shoulder all night long.

Guild M-20 6-string Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • 6-string acoustic 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
The M-20 is a great example of Guild's rich history.
