Formerly known as the F-20, this style of guitar was made popular by many artists in the folk-era. Back under a new name and designed with some of the modern techniques pioneered by master luthier, Ren Ferguson, this small-bodied American-made sweetheart still radiates the same, charming vintage character.

The M-40 Troubadour's Sitka spruce top paired with African mahogany back and sides provides a delicate, well-rounded tone that is perfect for fingerstyle playing and light strumming. The small, concert-size body is comfortable and lightweight and features white ABS binding, a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, and a bone nut and saddle. A thin satin varnish gives this guitar its familiar, broken-in look and feel, while also allowing it to breathe.

The M-40 Troubadour's timeless appointments include a vintage style rosette and Guild’s peak logo inlaid on the headstock. Each M-40 comes with a hand-signed, numbered certificate of authenticity, and ships with a humidified hardshell case. Available with a Natural or Antique Burst finish.

The best of the best


I can't even go into details about all the great things about this guitar. It projects sound like it's a vintage guitar with all the mojo. The finish has a nice satin feel to it and only con is that it is poly and not nitro but the poly is super thin so it breathes well. The craftsmanship ship is outstanding no ruff edges. The inside of the guitar looks outstanding as well. For a small concert size guitar it is super loud it has more bass in the sound than you would think. I am super happy with the case it comes with as well it's very sturdy. Guild USA is so under rated they build best friends not just guitars. It truly feels like a boutique instrument.
