Guild D-20E Vintage Sunburst, made in the USA with LR Baggs pickup

The Guild D-20E Vintage Sunburst, is a dreadnought acoustic guitar built with solid mahogany top, back, and sides. First introduced to the Guild line in 1968, this model features a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, bone nut and saddle, and an extremely light satin finish that allows this guitar to truly sing. The Guild D-20’s modest appointments include a vintage style rosette and Guild’s peak logo inlaid in mother-of-pearl on the headstock. Each Guild D20E comes with a hand-signed, numbered certificate of authenticity, and ships with a hardshell case.

The installed L.R. Baggs Element pickup system features a Volume and Tone Control and offer exceptional plugged in performance. Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their sound, the L.R. Baggs Element Active System with Volume and Tone Control was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s movement as you play. At the heart of the pickup, a thin, flexible film sensor picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances. With unrivalled dynamic range, the Element’s minimalist construction creates an intimate coupling between the pickup and guitar for the highest fidelity possible. In addition to its treble tone control, the EAS-VTC features a revolutionary low frequency compression circuit which actively controls low end dynamics, creating an incredibly realistic and reliable amplified tone.

The L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup system is made in California, USA.
