What makes this guitar special: Small body guitars are in vogue right now & this gorgeous F-20 Troubadour is a wonderful example of the fine acoustic craftsmanship coming out of Guild's Hoboken factory in the early days of the company. The guitar has a light airiness to it that makes it so much fun to play & its small size makes it the perfect travel companion.

Open-back strip tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.
