1959 Guild M20 – £1999
SOLD It’s unusual for a guitar to be linked with one particular player, but the Guild M20 will always be considered the Nick Drake guitar. There are other small bodied, all Mahogany guitars out there such as a Martin 00-17 or a Gibson L-0 which are great, and have their own particular characteristics – but if you really want the Nick Drake sound then this is the real thing. Because of this, M20’s don’t turn up very often – especially 50’s models with the Script headstock logo and Ghost label – and this one’s a beauty. A 00 size guitar, all Mahogany, in great playing condition, with a comfortable neck and low action. The guitar sounds rich and warm, with a beautifully smooth bass and well balanced mids and trebles – it sounds great with delicate fingerstyle, very articulate when picked harder, and a surprisingly big sound when strummed. The guitar is in excellent condition for a 63 year old guitar, with a replaced bridge and repaired top centre seam crack. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
