Guild M-40 E Electro Troubadour Sunburst

Out Of Stock Guild M-40 E Electro Troubadour Sunburst


The Guild M-40E guitars are built and finished to exceptionally high standards and not surprising really when you follow their history and heritage. Formerly known as the F-20 and made famous by many a folk guitar player from the sixties, this renamed beauty is built with all the modern skills that have been gained through the years and retains the character and finesse of its original vintage charm. You really have to see this instrument to believe it, the finish is amazing.

USA Styling

A Sitka Spruce top which is delightfully paired with African Mahogany back and sides give a fantastic tone for fingerstyle or light strumming duties. Very musical! The small concert-sized body is practical, comfortable and lightweight making this a very pleasant and simple instrument to get acquainted with. Finished with a host of original time correct features like the vintage style rosette and the Guild inlaid peak logo on the headstock. Completed with a hand signed certificate of authenticity and shipped in a Guild humidified HSC. 


The M40E Troubadour is equipped with the LR Baggs VTC Element pickup which is tucked neatly inside the soundhole giving access to volume and tone control right where you need them. Complete with a hardshell case and set up to your exact specifications, this stage-ready guitar is classy, stylish and ready to perform. The Guild luthiers have paid huge attention to detail with this heritage brand and are not cutting any corners just like back in the day. Guild was up there with best of them then and still is today.

Guild's long history and list of fantastic guitarists must be getting something right. The first guitar played at Woodstock! Huh!! Wow, what a credible statement
