The quality of the guitar is amazing for the money

28.10.2016
After some extensive research on acoustic guitars in this price range I decided to buy the Guild D240E Westerly Archback. I play for some time now and needed a guitar that can be used in small to medium rooms and would have good sound quality, which I expected from this guitar. At first glance it has a nice, warm tone, warmer than one would expect from a spruce top guitar, probably provided by the archback design.
For:
The build quality, overall look, balanced clear sound and a premium Guild gigbag included make this guitar a very competetive product for the money.
Against:
The one thing against it is when you plug it in, compared to similar models of other manufacturers the sound output is lower, on the other hand the sound stays clear and warm without the common interferences one would expect with higher volume settings.
Personally I am very happy with what I got as the guitar exceeded my expectations.

Great value for money

14.11.2016
This is an acoustic guitar to keep in mind. Both its balanced and bright sound and its mast feel are exceptional. For the price it has, it sounds wonderfully. It is very soft to play, nothing hard, with a charming neck, light but with a sound with body, the arched top makes it comfortable in the support and with a beautiful finish. The guitar has some against like the lack of hard case, but the semi rigid case that is enough to protect it properly. The electronics are very faithful to the sound of the speaker, with a very interesting sustain and brilliance, which makes the guitar a TOTAL acoustic, with everything we could expect from a model of much higher price.
