Guild D-55 Natural, Made in USA

Product Code:
Show description

Very hard to get hold of, this is the 2017 reintroduction of Guild's legendary D-55 top of the line acoustic dreadnought!

Made in the USA in Guild's Southern California facility under the expertise of super-luthier Ren Ferguson, this is an absolutely top-line US made dreadnought.

It features AAA spruce top, with stunning mastergrade Indian rosewood back and sides. This new D55 has a few tweaks from the originals to make it lighter and more balanced overall, and as such has Adirondack (red) spruce bracing, a new slim heel, open back Gotoh machine heads, and a birch tail block.

The binding and inlay on the fretboard is particularily beautiful and understated, overall an incredible looking dreadnought without appearing flashy.

Right from the first strum, the tone is incredible! Seriously rich and warm, whilst staying crystal clear and bright, with impressive sustain. It has all the classic US dreadnought punch you could possibly wish for, and would make a brilliant bluegrass or singer songwriter guitar.

A legend of the acoustic guitar world, brought up to date with some minor tweaks. Handmade in the USA with a nitro finish, this is an exceptional guitar.

Unlike other websites, our D-55 is ready in-store and in-stock today.
