NAMM 2019: Guild Guitars Adds Vintage-Inspired Acoustics to Westerly Collection Lineup

Two New Affordable Models Add Early 20th Century Aesthetics to Guild’s Acoustic Lineup


Guild is pleased to announce the expansion of its acoustic guitar line with the affordable and stunning Memoir Series. These two vintage-inspired instruments are here to help players write their own stories through shared memories and histories.

This new line is inspired by the Guild Orpheum Series, which was dreamed up and designed by Ren Ferguson in 2013. Inspired by the musings of how Guild guitars would have looked had the company existed in the 1920s and 30s, Ferguson adopted vintage design elements and body shapes typical of the early 20th century. The Memoir Series continues the Orpheum legacy and makes this classic aesthetic more accessible to a wider audience.

The DS-240 is a retro-looking slope shoulder dreadnought while the P-240 is a small-bodied parlor sized guitar with a 12 fret-to-body neck and slotted headstock. Both feature a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, sleek, gloss finish, and retro Guild Script Logo in mother-of-pearl.


Both Memoir guitars sound instantly warm, clear and inviting—almost as if its tone has been perfected over years of fireside strumming and family music-making.

P-240E – $499 Street • $695 MSRP
DS-240E – $499 Street • $695 MSRP
