‘The dreadnought bodied D-40 produces an extraordinary amount of volume and warmth, matching a tight grained solid Sitka spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides for extraordinary separation and clarity. Its strong, focused bass response, sweet, singing mids, and crisp highs give it a distinctive voice that sets this guitar apart from all others.’

This is a stunning guitar – some beautiful timbers and top-shelf craftmanship are combined in the best way possible. The one piece back is spectacular. This guitar features Mother-of-pearl dot position inlays, decorative soundhole rosette, pearl inlaid Guild logo and decorative pearl Chesterfield inlay on the peghead, a one-piece Mahogany neck with Rosewood fretboard, Rosewood bridge, and three per side Grover tuning machines.
This fine Guild has recently had the nut and saddle replaced by industry respected luthier, Piers Crocker. The results are spectacular, with great volume and robust tones.
And the sound is amazing – everything as described by Guild at the top of this description. Certainly a great alternative to high end Gibsons and Martins that occupy this level of the acoustic market.
Comes in its Guild hard case in new condition.
