Guild's iconic M-20 was the first guitar off the production line in 1967, when the company had grown so much that they relocated to a new factory in Westerly, RI. Nearly 50 year later, history has repeated itself in a brand new, state-of-the-art facility in California. The M-20 is a concert size acoustic guitar built with a solid mahogany top and solid mahogany back & sides, informally nicknamed "the Nick Drake guitar" for its inclusion on the album art for Drake's album, Bryter Layter. It features a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, bone nut and saddle, and an extremely light satin finish that allows this guitar to truly sing. The M-20's modest appointments include a vintage-style rosette and Guild's peak logo inlaid in mother-of-pearl on the headstock. Each M-20 comes with a hand-signed, numbered certificate of authenticity, and ships with a hardshell case. Made in California.

This guitar has a distinctive voice that lends itself to blues, fingerstyle, and sing-along-strumming for country and folk songs. The tuning holds well and right now I have mine in DADGAD, which sounds terrific. It's a comfortable size. The string spacing at the bridge gives a little extra than other concert size guitars so fingerpicking is a bit easier, especially when using a thumbpick. Visually, it's a pretty guitar with a sweet burst that carries over to the neck. The case is nice quality. I like how there is a little notch for the strap button.
