look what came today (well, yesterday by now). it's a guild GAD-M20, and yes, it's all mahogany. sounds warm, surprisingly loud considering it's got a 13 3/4" lower bout and is 4" at the deepest point, and not boxy like a lot of small guitars. fell in love with the tone after trying it at a local store, and since i had a credit at AMS, i just couldn't help myself.

btw, i'd say this also proves that i can't shoot gloss finish guitars yet using my new camera

So, an all-mahogany small-bodied guitar. How's it sound? Parlor-sized guitars have a tendency to be a bit too bright, does the mahogany round out the tone?

thanks, all

the mahogany does mellow the tone, but the bracing is also probably a big part of the equation. i have another guitar on layaway, and it sounds completely different - strong, resonant and but also not too bright. neither sound boxy, either, which is the usual curse of smaller guitars.
