I'd been looking for an all-solid smaller body guitar. So many sound boxy or cardboardy when they're an 00 or 0 size that I had been searching for some time. Then I ran across the Guild GAD-F20 at a local store that I had gone to to check out the F20's sibling, the M20, which is the same size but all mahogany. I played 'em both, and actually liked 'em both, but the F20 was the one that stuck in my mind. It has a bright but not overbright tone, was louder than a lot of small guitars, with a clean, articulate sound that I associate with Sitka and Mahogany. I went home to decide, and the sound of the F20 was the one that I couldn't stop thinking about, so I went back and got it, and it's been my favorite guitar ever since, even though I own several including a Taylor GC8. Which is a very nice guitar, btw, but I love the feel and sound of my Guild.

BTW, the F20 looks much nicer in person than the pics I've seen of it online. The wood is beautiful, the finish is perfect, and the maple binding glows - I've actually gotten complements on the binding several times. And the hard case is strong, light and fits the guitar tightly so it doesn't move when cased. Even though the nut is 1 11/16", and I usually prefer something a bit wider, it was still comfortable to play.

The Guild GAD-F20 isn't a guitar for those looking for something as loud as a dread. That being said, this is a well-made all-solid smaller guitar with a beautiful finish, nice appointments, and a typical crisp mahogany sound that offers more volume than many near its size. And of course, the F20 is an excellent value, too. The bottom line - if this sounds like what you're looking for, this guitar really delivers.
