Guild OM-240E Acoustic Guitar with AP-1 Pickup Natural

Product Review (submitted on November 17, 2021):
Smooth and warm lows. Crisp and bright highs. Almost effortless to play. The action is on the lower side. This is more of a finger picking guitar. Playability is great and the quality is top-notch. It has no buzz, bad notes or fretting out anywhere. This is a light weight guitar, which can be used as travel guitar.

It sounds 'Okay' right now, as the spruce top will continue to improve with age. There is a decent low end and a full midrange punch with a pronounced higher end which is common with a laminated mahogany back and sides guitar.

The guitar came fitted with a Guild AP-1 Active piezo Pickup. This system uses sound hole mounted volume and tone controls, which keep everything tucked away. There is no built in tuner or any other EQ controls, so on first glance of this guitar you wouldn’t know it was an electro acoustic.

A new set of Daddario EJ 16 strings were requested as the ones which were on guitar were heavily rusted and with daily playing of 1 -2 hours, I had few cuts and blisters on my finger tips. It took around a month to get it from the music store after daily follow ups. After restringing it can be played comfortably and it sounds decent.

No guitar case is supplied by the manufacturer of Guild. I was given complimentary decent guitar case of "GRAIL" brand by music store owner.
