Guild Westerly Series M-240E Troubadour Archback Acoustic Electric Guitar


Small-bodied Acoustic-Electric Ideal for Fingerstyle and Strumming With the Ability to Plug Into Any Amp

An homage to the classic Guild F-20, a favorite of the folk era of the 1960‘s, this gently used Guild M-240e Troubadour Archback is an amazing small-bodied acoustic electric guitar that is ideal for smaller guitarists looking for an ideal acoustic electric for rehearsal, recording and travel. The Guild M-240e Troubadour Archback is incredibly light and with its 24 ¾” scale length and 16“ fretboard radius, it delivers on comfort and silky playability.

Featuring a highly resonant solid Sitka Spruce top with a Mahogany back and sides and solid X bracing, the Guild M-240 delivers a balanced tone that is harmonically rich for its size. The Mahogany neck features a slim-C neck profile and a Pau Ferro fretboard with a 16“ radius that makes it extremely comfortable in the hand, and very easy to play up the neck’s entire length.

To complete the package, the Guild M-240e Troubadour gets its vintage plugged-in sound from a DeArmond Tone Boss soundhole pickup. The magnetic DeArmond soundhole pickup features built-in volume and tone controls that make it compatible with any guitar amplifier. 

Other player-centered hardware and features include a bone nut and saddle, tortoiseshell pickguard, nickel plated open gear tuners, and a gorgeous satin polyurethane finish with a vintage sunburst top.
