Quintessential Tonewood Paring

Spruce and Mahogany is a coveted tonewood pairing that brings out a sweet and balanced tone with great attack, sustain, and warmth. Guild first debuted this pairing in 1963 with the release of the D-40, and for over 60 years it has remained a staple in the product line and the choice of players of all musical genres across the globe. The 340 models strictly use solid and seasoned Spruce for their tops.

Premium Materials

Includes real bone nut and saddle, black tortoiseshell pickguard (optional, comes uninstalled), multi-ply rosette and purfling inlay.

Lightweight Satin Finish

An ultra-thin satin finish that is lightweight and resonant. Open pore with no heavy grain fills or over-spray that choke the guitar from vibrating and producing warm woody tones. Natural and smooth coating with subtle grain texture.

GP-1 Pickup System

Ready for the stage, studio, or any electrified environment with soundhole mounted volume and tone controls for ease of use and no drilling or impact on the acoustic body design.
