The Guild BT-240E is a full-frequency, baritone acoustic guitar that oozes character and mystique. Tuned B-E-A-D-F#-b, 5 steps down from a standard guitar, it is a fantastic instrument for filling in any ensemble, and for inspiring dynamic music-making as a solo player.
It combines Guild’s historically large jumbo body shape with the pressed back construction to create a deep and rich tone that is both crisp and balanced thanks to the mahogany back and the solid spruce top. The scalloped X bracing allows it to resonate optimally, while the satin finish shows off the natural wood-grain. Along with the open-gear tuners and mother-of-pearl rosette, the BT-240E not only sounds great, but looks the part too. It is also stage-ready, with a Fishman Sonitone GT-1 pickup system on board, and is a great choice for any player looking to expand their sonic palette.
Includes gig bag.
