Perfect for fingerstyle, comfortable playability
This is definitely my go-to fingerstyle guitar, as it has a special melodic ringing chime to it. Characteristic for Guilds in my mind. Because of this, is why i chose this over the Martin 0015m.
It's playability is perfect due to its parlour size, that i even pick it up at home more often then my Martin D-28. Also when playing unplugged/unmiced , the D-28 tends drown out my male singing voice (Tenor B2-G3), where as the Guild M120 does not.
Is it all perfect? No definitely not. If you strum a tad too hard, whether accidental or just to get heard in the back, the Guild will start to sound "boxed in". It is the limitation of the smaller body. Be aware of it, as it does not sound pretty.
My advice for the medium to larger venues, is to amp the Guild up, or simply use a larger guitar.
Solid Vintage Tone
Ive owned Taylor, Fender, and a couple of others, but this particular Guild has that old school all mahogany tone. I tried a $1600 Martin and the Guild sounded and played WAY better. Its great for light strumming singer songwriter styles, or, fingerpicking galore! The neck is a wide thin type and it projects really well for a smaller body guitar.
