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-40E Troubadour’s Sitka spruce top is paired with African mahogany back and sides to provide a delicate, well-rounded tone that is perfect for fingerstyle playing and light strumming. The M-40E's 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-40E includes a discreet, USA-made L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup.

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