Guild's new 240 model editions to their Westerly series are great quality at affordable prices.
This is a lovely little guitar with a traditional-feel setup, a smooth matt finish and feel throughout with a strident, lively yet balanced tone. The slight contour of the back feels comfortable and natural, and the Guild AP-1 pickup makes it ready for the stage, with discrete soundhole controls.
An all round excellent guitar at a great price!
This mid-sized orchestra shaped acoustic is equally suited for strumming and fingerpicking, and produces a sweet, balanced tone. The perfect choice for the versatile musician, the OM-240E features a solid Sitka spruce top, mahogany sides, and arched mahogany back. Guild’s signature arched back design allows for great volume and projection, long sustain, and a lush, full sound. The OM-240E features Guild’s AP-1 pickup, an Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, pearloid rosette, period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and a matte polyurethane finish. This model also includes Guild’s new lightweight deluxe gig bag.
