Based on Bob Marley’s at-home, songwriting guitar, the Guild A-20 Marley is a worthy tribute to the reggae legend. Many of Marley’s hits through the seventies were written on his Guild Madeira acoustic guitar. The A-20 Marley reintroduces Marley’s beloved dreadnought to the world along with a few modern appointments. Built with a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the full-bodied and powerful tone of this dreadnought provides Marley fans and songwriters alike with an easy-to-play, well-balanced acoustic guitar. The C-shaped neck with 25 ½” scale length allows for a relaxed and comfortable feel. Unique features include a vintage-correct, flat, round-cornered headstock with vintage Guild script logo, custom pickguard with Bob Marley signature, and a MARLEY script inlay on the 12th fret. Additional features include a pau ferro fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, and a matte polyurethane finish. Available in Natural. As a continuation of Bob Marley’s love for music and planet, the guitar includes a premium Marley X Guild gig bag made from recycled nylon. Additionally, Guild has partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every Marley guitar made. The included booklet contains the history of Marley’s Guild Madeira, first-hand stories from his family, details on how the A-20 Marley was made, and official chords for one of Bob Marley’s biggest hits. Three custom guitar picks display a lion and Guild G-Shield in gold ink. Finally, an exclusive poster featuring Bob Marley and his original Guild is included to commemorate the legacy of one of the world’s greatest songwriters.
