OVERVIEW

Well-balanced body design and quality tonewood pairing make this ideal for any musician.

This mid-sized orchestra shaped acoustic is equally suited for strumming and fingerpicking, and produces a sweet, balanced tone. The perfect choice for the versatile musician, the OM-240E features a solid Sitka spruce top, mahogany sides, and arched mahogany back. Guild’s signature arched back design allows for great volume and projection, long sustain, and a lush, full sound. The OM-240E features Guild’s AP-1 pickup, an Indian rosewood
fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, pearloid rosette, period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and a matte polyurethane finish. This model also includes Guild’s lightweight deluxe gig bag.

Westerly Collection

The Westerly Collection pays homage to an important period in Guild’s early history, when Guild outgrew the beloved Hoboken, New Jersey factory, and moved production to Westerly, Rhode Island in 1967. Finding a home in a former furniture manufacturing building, Guild took advantage of the additional space the new location had to offer, and improved upon the production layout left behind in Hoboken.

With a fresh start, highly skilled employees, and plenty of room to grow, Guild flourished. It was not long before the Westerly factory became renowned for exceptional craftsmanship, quality and the introduction of many beloved Guild acoustics. The dedication to innovation was apparent with meticulous attention to detail. Inspired by this golden era, the Guild Westerly Collection carries on the tradition of impeccable workmanship and unwavering excellence by incorporating high-quality materials and classic Guild designs into each instrument.

Comments about Guild OM-240E Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I wanted a new Acoustic and played a few Martin's and Taylor's that were more expensive. I stumbled across the Guild OM-250e and was really surprised by the build quality, arched back, open gear tuners and the most importantly the sound of it. The note articulation of the guitar is amazing. I changed the strings and went with D'Addario Nickel Bronze 12-53, they don't color the sound and let the guitar have a great woody acoustic sound. The electronics of the Guild pickup are great, it is loud with a strong low end, mids and brilliant highs. In a blind test I would have thought this guitar was much more expensive than than what it actually cost, my advice is get one.
