Player's Perspective

This is one of the most impressive, tonally unique acoustic guitars we've had the pleasure of playing in a while. The sound of this M-40E is everything you'd expect from a fine, high-end Guild. Single notes have are rich and full, like there's much more going on than just one note ringing out on an acoustic guitar. Chords blend together beautifully while letting each note retain its identity, and you can really hear the harmonic overtones in the wood come out as chords fade. The feel is slinky and comfortable, encouraging all styles of fingerpicking, strumming, and flatpicking. The smaller body size is naturally ergonomic and makes for a punchy, focused instrument. This M-40E truly a unique, rich guitar, and over time, it will only sound and feel better. In addition to just being a flat-out awesome acoustic guitar, the state-of-the-art LR Baggs Element VTC gives you the added versatility of being able to plug this beauty into an amp or a PA and faithfully recreate the harmonically rich sounds being produced acoustically. Made right up the road from our store, here in California, this Guild is a fine example of USA craftsmanship in a warm sounding, and comfortable and easy to play guitar.

Special Features

Formerly known as the F-20, this style of guitar was made popular by many artists in the folk-era. Back under a new name and designed with some of the modern techniques pioneered by master luthier, Ren Ferguson, this small-bodied American-made sweetheart still radiates the same, charming vintage character.

The M-40 Troubadour’s Sitka spruce top paired with African mahogany back and sides provides a delicate, well-rounded tone that is perfect for fingerstyle playing and light strumming. The small, concert-size body is comfortable and lightweight and features white ABS binding, a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, and a bone nut and saddle. A thin satin varnish gives this guitar its familiar, broken-in look and feel, while also allowing it to breathe. The timeless appointments include a vintage style rosette and Guild’s peak logo inlaid on the headstock. Each M-40 comes with a hand-signed, numbered certificate of authenticity, and ships with a humidified hardshell case. This model is available with a Natural or Antique Burst finish. A discreet, USA-made LR Baggs Element VTC pickup is also available.

The M-40E Troubadour brings back the glory days. Designed by Guild master luthier Ren Ferguson with a proprietary bracing pattern and other cutting-edge refinements, this all-solid-tonewood acoustic-electric radiates classic vintage vibe. The M-40E Troubadour's smaller concert-size body, with its Sitka spruce top and African mahogany back and sides, serves up a balanced tonal palette that's perfect for light strummers and fingerstyle players alike. Plug-in onstage or in the studio, and the onboard LR Baggs Element VTC electronics amplify that gorgeous tone flawlessly. Premium appointments include an Indian rosewood bridge and fingerboard, bone nut and saddle, vintage-style rosette, and a thin satin varnish finish that imparts a timeless, played-in look and feel while allowing the sound of the Guild M-40E Troubadour to bloom unimpeded.
