Guild M-260E Deluxe Concert Acoustic Guitar - Edgeburst

Brand: Guild
Stock Id: GUILD-M-260E-DLX

The M-260E Deluxe offers upgraded appointments and features to the “M” concert-sized acoustics in Guild’s 200 series lineup. Taking after the flagship USA-made M-20, the M-260E carries the same reduced body dimensions and shorter scale length that have made Guild “M” models the choice of many players over the brand’s 70-year history, from folk singer-songwriter Nick Drake to indie-pop hitmaker Beabadoobee. Thanks to its archback design, this acoustic delivers a powerful voice with its small body and is perfect for fingerstyle playing and light strumming.

Guild was the first guitar manufacturer to introduce back arching on flat-top acoustic instruments and this defining build technique sets Guild guitars apart. An archback creates:

  • Tone Projection – a deeper and contoured body chamber that increases projection
  • Weight Reduction – no back bracing which reduces weight and improves resonance
  • Strength – arching creates structure and strength, adding durability. Made to be Played.

First introduced in 1957 on the M-20, Guild’s M Concert body shape has stood the test of time for nearly 70 years. This acoustic shape is comfortable for smaller players, makes for a great songwriting companion, and is ideal for fingerstyle playing and light strumming
