For a small-bodied guitar the Guild M-20 produces a surprising amount of sound. The solid Mahogany top, back and sides generate the characteristic warm mid-range tones which are considered by many to be the “sweet spot” for both fingerstyle playing and flatpicking. Made in the USA this guitar sits comfortably in your lap and evokes a touch of older times with the open-gear tuners. Guild has put all of its energy into the construction and the sound and little in the way of fancy designs. A light satin finish helps the guitar to “sing” and fingerboard dots are basic but all in the right places.
