Excerpt: I have been playing for around 5 years, i also own some fender electrics, a really well built koa parlor guitar built by a local luthier, and a nylon string guitar that i don't really know much about or how i got it. I am really i happy i chose to buy this guitar, if it were stolen i would buy for sure another one. I really like the fact that it' a solid wood guitar for under 1,000. normally i would have a slight dislike but i have already explained why i don't mind it.
Excerpt: I own a few other acoustics (a mid-range Yamaha semi-acoustic, a Freshman dreadnought and a battered laminate-top Crafter) and a few electrics (a mid-nineties Jackson and an Ibanez JS1000). This is definitely my favourite for casual and serious acoustic work. If it were stolen or lost I'd replace it as soon as I could. I've been playing for eight years.
Excerpt: I've been playing for about 18 years... I owned a "Signet" Martin 00-18 copy as an acoustic, as well as a Hohner classical guitar, as well as a 90's Fender Jazzmaster (from Japan) and an American-made Fender Stratocaster. I've never really owned that decent of an acoustic guitar, so it is a real pleasure to be playing this guitar. If it was stolen, I would certainly buy a replacement of the same model. I'd almost be really interested now to find a vintage M20.
Excerpt: this guitar is going to give my '59 a run for its money. the sound is wonderful, the bone nut and bridge are well cut and fitted, the thin top is built like the originals, all in all, a superb reissue, better than the early '90's usa made version, much more open and ringing tone. intonation is excellent, without a compensated saddle, just an all around well crafted instrument. the guild design is just superb, always has been.
Excerpt: I have been playing 15 years now and have been through just about every guitar made! Ive wanted an M20 for 8 years now and have always found them to be very expensive (the shop i bought this from had a 1977 model for ��1395!) As mentioned before i own a Martin 0015 which is very similar in looks and material but not the same! Irony is the Martin cost me ��700 and this was far cheaper and electro into the bargain!
