Built with a solid spruce top, mahogany sides, and arched mahogany back, the full-bodied and powerful tone of this Guild dreadnought provides guitarists with a classic acoustic sound and balanced voicing. Guild’s signature arched back design allows for great volume and projection, long sustain, and a lush, full sound. The D-240E features Guild’s AP-1 pickup, a bone nut and saddle, pearloid rosette, period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and a matte polyurethane finish. This model also includes Guild’s new sturdy but lightweight deluxe gig bag. Available in Natural.


  • Iconic arched back pays tribute to Guild's early acoustics
  • Unique design is lighter and louder than comparably sized guitars
  • Dreadnought body captures the traditional acoustic tone: big, woody, and vibrant
  • Matte finish looks great under stage lights
  • Vintage-profiled C-shaped neck with Indian rosewood fingerboard plays comfortably
  • 1960s red tortoiseshell pickguard looks great onstage
  • Bone nut and saddle enhance sustain and clarity
  • 1-11/16" nut width suits strummers to fingerstylists
  • 25.5" scale length has a slinky-smooth action
  • Guild AP-1 pickup system provides a clean sound for the stage and studio
