Guild USA M-25E California Burst

Brand: Guild

The original M-20 was the first guitar off the production line in 1967 when manufacturing was based in Hoboken, New Jersey. Today, the M series are an iconic piece of the Guild name—manufactured in Oxnard, California in a state-of-the-art facility. The M-25E expands on the M-20, featuring added appointments and a gloss finished top and headstock. This concert size acoustic guitar is built with a solid mahogany top, back, and sides. It features a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, and bone nut and saddle. The M-25E’s updated appointments include a fully bound body, a vintage style rosette, Guild’s peak logo inlaid in mother-of-pearl on the headstock, gloss nitrocellulose top and headstock with satin body and neck, and an exquisite California Burst finish. Each M-25E comes with a hand-signed, numbered certificate of authenticity, and ships with a hardshell case. Available in California Burst with LR Baggs Element VTC pickup.
