*PICTURES ARE OF THE ACTUAL GUITAR!*
Weight: 3lbs 13oz
Meet the M-240E, a small-body addition to Guilds acoustic archback line.The M-240E is an homage to Guilds F-20, a small-bodied wonder that became popular during the folk era of the 60s. This petite guitar is ideal for fingerstyle playing and light strumming. The reduced size is excellent for smaller players or musicians looking for a great sounding travel guitar.The M-240E features a solid Sitka spruce top over an arched mahogany back, a classic wood combination that produces a well-balanced voice with plenty of overtones. Other features include a bone nut and saddle, tortoiseshell pickguard, nickel plated open gear tuners, a Fishman GT-1 preamp system, and a thin, resonate satin polyurethane finish.
