The new models include five new arched-back acoustics, Starfires, and more.
USA-Made D-12 Model
Heralded as one of America’s premium guitar brands since the 1950s, Guild is proud to announce the launch of the M-20 and D-20, the first models to come out of their new California factory. These two guitars are authentic reproductions of the classic Guild M-20 and D-25, which were first introduced by Guild in the 1960s. Ren Ferguson, Guild’s VP of Manufacturing and R&D, felt they were the best two guitars for his new team to start with. The M-20 is a concert size acoustic guitar, informally nicknamed “the Nick Drake guitar” for its inclusion on the album art for Drake’s album, Bryter Layter. The D-20 is a classic Guild dreadnought, based on the historic D-25. Both models are constructed with solid mahogany tops, backs, and sides, rosewood bridges and fingerboards, and bone nuts and saddles. Under Ferguson’s direction, some slight refinements have been made to the bracing and design of both models. The guitars are sprayed with an extremely light natural satin finish with sunburst option. Appointments are modest, including a vintage style rosette and inlaid Guild’s peak logo on the headstock. Both models include a certificate of authenticity signed by Ferguson, and ship with a hardshell case. Guild is excited to ring in a new era of USA production, beginning with the reintroduction of two iconic acoustic models.
