Guild Guitars Unveils the Bob Marley A-20

Guild Guitars Unveils the Bob Marley A-20

In collaboration with the Bob Marley family, Guild Guitars releases the Guild A-20 Marley acoustic guitar paying tribute to the legendary global music icon.


The guitar, designed in collaboration with the Marley family, is modeled after a Guild Madeira A-20 – the songwriting guitar Marley kept at his house on 56 Hope Road in Kingston, Jamaica. Guild is reissuing the guitar with a few additions to pay homage to Marley. It will come with a recycled nylon gig bag featuring custom artwork, custom guitar picks, a making-of booklet featuring chords to "Three Little Birds", and a Bob Marley poster.

The Guild A-20 Marley acoustic guitar features a dreadnaught body shape with a thin satin finish, solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, Guild script logo, "MARLEY" fretboard inlay and Madeira pickguard shape complete with "Bob Marley" signature.

As part of the collaboration between Guild and the Marley family, Guild Guitars is supporting One Tree Planted to help global reforestation. One tree will be planted for every Marley guitar made (onetreeplanted.org). In addition, Guild Guitars has shown support for the Alpha School of Music in Kingston by donating instruments to their music program (alphamusicja.com).

Marley X Guild – Behind The Guitar

"It's a continuation of the philosophy of Bob's music," said Ziggy Marley. "Anywhere his representation goes, his message goes. So, we are very happy that we have the opportunity to work with Guild to spread his message through this guitar."

"This guitar will open the door for a new generation to learn about Bob Marley's music and message," says Tim Miklaucic, CEO/Founder of Cordoba Music Group, Guild's parent company. "We are very proud of the guitar and honored for the opportunity to work closely with the Marley family."
