Guild A-20 Marley

Guild A-20 Marley Acoustic Guitar

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.

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.
