Amazing guitar for the price

What is your opinion of this product?
Guild is one of the best Acoustic guitar brands available and this guitar is no exception. Amazing tone and note separation, great sustain and projection. Coming from a Taylor 114ce which is a bit more expensive, my opinion is that this guitar sounds and plays better. You really can't get a better guitar for the price and it's a Guild no less.

Great Guild sound
What is your opinion of this product?
I have always thought Guild was the best guitar for the money.This one was no exception.I have been hooked on Guild since I bought my first G-37.This one sounds fantastic right out of the box.But when you plug it in-that's when the real magic starts.

Best acoustic for the dollar!
What is your opinion of this product?
Very well built and nice bottom end as well as sweet mid and high tones. Frets are dressed well and the guitar us set up well out of the case.

Is well worth the money you pay for this instrument.
What is your opinion of this product?
This is one of the best guitars I have owned that is made outside the U.S.A for an American guitar company, the Guild bowback design is one of the most resonate in a class by itself. This guitar came setup with a low action just the way I like it, bar chords, no problem. I took it to my Blues guitar lessons at the Academy and played solo scales to my professors backing chords and it was absolutely scary the perfect note bending and tones I achieved, if you are looking for the budget model this is it!

Truly a fantastic value!
What is your opinion of this product?
ThIs is a great guitar, especially at this low price! The fit and finish are perfect. The action from the factory was very playable, and the guitar is loud with a well balanced tone. The guitar is very light, in contrast to the original Westerly archbacks which were quite heavy. The neck is very slim, if you like a thin modern neck you will love this one. I don't think you'll find a better guitar at this price point.

Great Guitar, Beautiful Clear Tone
What is your opinion of this product?
Great deal for the price. Has a nice clear voice, on the high end, but sweet sounding. Well worth the money. First one had discoloration from the pad inside the gig bag. Guild should make sure each is wrapped in poly wrap. AM replace it, new one better. Did not affect tone or playability, but visually, I could see it. Overall quality is very good. Nice mahogany wood, intonation good, playability great. Been playing for 40 years, this one stays out with my other more expensive guitars and gets played daily. Pickup works well, too, nice amplified tone. I see no drawbacks for the price. Guild is an excellent guitar, USA made or not. Gig bag is nice, but get a hard shell case to protect it if you travel. Nice archback.

amazing guitar !
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar is going to take over the world. I have had all the top name brands and I have to tell you guys and girls to give Guild a try. If you don't like it send it back (you wont)what do you have to lose...NOTHING, but you have a lot to gain owning the D-240E. This guitar is going to blow your mind. I have played for 35 years and currently own 12 guitars. I am not going to be unfair and name certain brands because I like to think I have a little class. The only names I am dropping today is GUILD. Your not going to find (in my opinion) a better guitar for the money. Any guitar player knows what "action" means and this guitar came set up perfectly. The only thing needed is a tuner or a good ear. The playability and speed of the neck is incredible! This guitar is sexy looking as well. Open tuners on the unmistakable headstock with bone nut and smooth neck will have you wondering how its possible to have this level of quality at such a low price point. This ax is sure to please!!

Surprisingly decent guitar for the $$.
What is your opinion of this product?
The action was set too low. I had to adjust the neck tension first thing. After backing the neck off 1/4 turn, I was quite pleased with the playability & sound of this guitar. Glad it came with the hex wrench. It doesn't have the tone of my Martin GPCPA4, but I could buy 4 of these for the price of my Martin. It's good enough to use it for a main guitar if you need to. I intend to keep it for a spare. I recommend a hard case.
