    What is a 1960's F-20 Guild worth, approximately? Are these good guitars?

    The 1960s Guilds are fantastic guitars but the concert size guitars do not bring premium prices. From what I have seen they sell in $650 to $750 range for one in average condition and $850 to $950 in excellent conditon.

    having played the M20 and F20, i'd have to say they are just small enough to get that "boxy" parlor sound. good for a piedmont blues perhaps, but not a ringing folk chimer. i'd look for an F30 which is closer to the Martin 000 in size.

    I have been to Woodsy's many times and bought a nice fender Toronado electric there. They have nice new guitars but I don't live in Ohio anymore so i haven't been there in awhile. they mostly have new guitars. They do (or did) have nice Collings and Santa Cruz guitars. I love those Collings.
