The Guild DS-240 Memoir is a beautifully designed, incredibly playable, slope shoulder acoustic at a great price. The DS-240 Memoir features a solid spruce top and gorgeous mahogany back and sides — a wonderful tonewood combination that produces stellar high and midrange tone with rich bass response. A gloss finish on the mahogany back and sides lets its natural coloring really pop. In addition, a comfortable C-shaped profile mahogany neck with pau ferro fingerboard is incredibly responsive and playable. Scalloped-X bracing further enhances the tone and durability of the DS-240, giving you years of playing and improved tone over time.
Guild has earned a solid reputation over the decades as one of America's premier early guitar makers. Its commitment to quality material and design is forefront with the solid spruce and mahogany on the DS-240 Memoir — a tonewood pairing renowned for its rich, varied voicing and resonance. The slope shoulder dreadnought body provides big sound and a comfortable playing experience. A NuBone nut and saddle also support great sustain and clarity. And a 1960s red tortoiseshell pickguard lends even more classic look and vibe. Added visual delight comes by way of a mother-of-pearl rosette and Guild Peak headstock logo — features guitarists here at Sweetwater love.
