As part of Guild's US-made 40 Series, the small body M-40 is a no-frills guitar that offers premium tone, playability, and craftsmanship in a budget-friendly package.
A compact concert body size make the M-40 very comfortable to hold and play while the all-solid spruce/mahogany construction produces an unexpectedly big, punchy tone for a guitar this size.
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 M-40 Troubadour’s 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.
