Guild Memoir Series DS-240 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar

Here to help you write your own story - the Memoir DS-240. This retro-looking slope shoulder dreadnought is built with a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides with a sleek, gloss finish. The vintage-inspired mother of pearl rosette and Guild Script Logo pay homage to the classic styling of instruments from the 1920s. The DS-240’s sound is instantly warm, clear and inviting - almost as if its tone has been perfected over years of fireside strumming and family jamming.
