Solid spruce top guitar with Nato laminate back and sides. "Folk symphony" body style which is a bit smaller than the usual dreadnought body shape which makes it easier to play sitting on a sofa etc. Cheaper guitars typically have a laminate top, whereas this has a solid piece of wood which resonates better and gives a better sound.

A great price for an entry level solid top guitar as the emphasis is on the quality of the sound from the solid top as opposed to having fancy inlays.

There are also more expensive versions of this guitar available with pickup and built in tuner.

Same price as that at 4 UK music stores also.
Why people don't do a Google Shopping search which takes less than 10 seconds before posting a deal beats me!

Thank for the tip mate, haven't used that site before, are they good to deal with?
Better buying a second hand Chinese guild. All did woods and I picked mine up for 300 with a hard case. They are brilliant guitars.

It doesn't show Bax for me possibly because they are not UK based but it shows multiple other stores at the same price - Google
@barneyonion got a guild m120. It's a remake of Nick Drakes guitar. It's lovely for fingerpicking.

Based in Holland (where they have a decent enough rep) all items are shipped from Holland. Personally I'd rather buy a guitar locally so I can check it over but hey ho, they are trying to compete with Thomann

Do check out their reviews on their Facebook page, they do reasonably well on places like TrustedPilot but a good number of horror stories and 1 star reviews out there. Their reputation in Holland is superior to their UK enterprise.

The Bax brother also appear to treat their staff poorly.
