Guild D-20 Dreadnought 6-String Acoustic Guitar
The Guild D-20 was on our now defunct recommended list for Acoustic Guitars from $1500 to $2000 from March 2022 until September 2022 when we removed that category.
In January 2022 we announced the results of our annual analysis of acoustic guitar brands - Guild ranked 2nd.
Guild M-20 Overview
Guild has a long history of producing good quality acoustics.
Case in point is the D-20, a modern take on Guild's Westerly era (late '60s) dreadnought, that meets the quality and craftsmanship standards of their new parent company, Cordoba.
The Guild D-20 is an all-solid body dreadnought, featuring solid African mahogany for the top, back and sides, and is available in vintage sunburst or natural finish.
This wood combination and shape gives the D-20 a warmer tone while retaining the projection and bottom end expected from a dreadnought.
Everything about it follows familiar specs, including its 25.6" scale length, 1.6875" nut width and 12" fingerboard radius.
Aesthetic appointments are kept to minimum, resulting in a streamlined look that lets its natural wood grains take the spotlight.
