The Guild M-240E Troubadour Concert
The Westerly Collection pays homage to an important period in Guild’s early history
…when Guild outgrew the beloved Hoboken, New Jersey factory, and moved production to Westerly, Rhode Island in 1967. Finding a home in a former furniture manufacturing building, Guild took advantage of the additional space the new location had to offer, and improved upon the production layout left behind in Hoboken.
Inspired by this golden era, The Westerly Collection pays homage to Guild’s early history renowned for exceptional craftsmanship, quality, and the introduction of many beloved Guild acoustics. Inspired by this golden era, the Guild Westerly Collection carries on the tradition of impeccable workmanship and unwavering excellence by incorporating high-quality materials and classic Guild designs into each instrument..
Music Radar readers voted the newly released M-240E Troubadour one of 2017’s best new Acoustic Guitars, calling it “a versatile electro with enough clout to hold its own on stage.”
Meet the M-240E Troubadour, a small-body, sunburst addition to Guild’s acoustic archback line.The M-240E Troubadour is an homage to Guild’s F-20, a small-bodied wonder that became popular during the folk era of the 60’s. This petite guitar is ideal for fingerstyle playing and light strumming. The reduced size is excellent for smaller players or musicians looking for a great sounding travel guitar.The M-240E Troubadour features a solid Sitka spruce top over an arched mahogany back, a classic wood combination that produces a well-balanced voice with plenty of overtones. Other features include a bone nut and saddle, tortoiseshell pickguard, nickel plated open gear tuners, and a thin, resonate satin polyurethane finish with a vintage sunburst top. Completing the Troubadour’s vintage vibe is the DeArmond Tone Boss, a user-friendly humbucking magnetic soundhole pickup with built-in volume control that is compatible with any amplifier.
