This mid-sized orchestra shape acoustic is equally suited for flatpicking and fingerpicking and produces a rich and balanced tone with smooth playability.

With classic Guild design elements loved by players over the company's 70 year history, the Guild OM-250E is a player's acoustic with incredible value. A few of the design elements include a solid Sitka Spruce top with scalloped braces, archback body design, bone nut and saddle, Guild x Fishman GT-1 pickup system, and tortoiseshell pickguard.

Fishman x Guild GT-1 Pickup System
Featuring Fishman S-Core piezo and internal soundhole mounted volume and tone controls for ease of use and no drilling or impact on the acoustic body design.

OM "Orchestra" Body Shape
Guild's OM body shape sits right in the middle of body sizes within the Guild acoustic lineup; smaller than a Dreadnought (D) and larger than a Concert (M) body. It is equally suited for strumming and fingerpicking, and produces a warm, balanced tone. OMs are some of the most popular body shapes in acoustic guitars, and paired with a 25 \0xBD" scale length, the OM-250E is the perfect and comfortable choice for the versatile musician.

Lightweight Satin Finish
An ultra-thin satin finish that is lightweight and resonant. Open pore with no heavy grain fills or over-spray that choke the guitar from vibrating read more and producing warm, woody tones. Natural and smooth coating with subtle grain texture.

Premium Materials
Includes Guild Vintage 16 Open Gear tuning machines with 16:1 gear ratio, real bone nut and saddle, tortoiseshell pickguard, multi-ply mother of pearl rosette and purfling inlays, and the classic tonewood combination of Spruce and Rosewood.

Drawing from its beginnings as a high-end archtop guitar manufacturer, Guild was the first to introduce back arching on acoustic guitars and this defining build technique sets Guild guitars apart. An archback creates:
- Tone Projection: a deeper and contoured body chamber that increases projection.
- Weight Reduction: no back bracing which reduces weight and improves resonance.
- Strength: arching creates structure and strength, adding durability. Made to be Played.
