Guild D-240E Acoustic-Electric Guitar

Strum away on this solid sitka spruce and mahogany dreadnought from Guild. An onboard AP-1 piezo pickup projects the nuances of the guitar and your playing.

Built with a solid spruce top, mahogany sides, and arched mahogany back, the full-bodied and powerful tone of the Guild D-240E dreadnought provides guitarists with a classic acoustic sound and balanced voicing. Guild's signature arched back design allows for great volume and projection, long sustain, and a lush, full sound. The D-240E features Guild's AP-1 pickup, an Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, pearloid rosette, period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and a matte polyurethane finish.

This guitar is worth every penny of the purchase price, and then some. It sounds great, it plays easy, and the satin finish looks and feels amazing. The volume projects like crazy and the onboard electronics are a plus. This is by far the best acoustic in this price range I've ever picked up. It was my first guild but definitely won't be my last.
