The D-55 includes a AAA Sitka spruce top, solid Indian Rosewood back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge, and nitrocellulose finish. Internal refinements include scalloped Adirondack bracing as well as an improved dovetail neck-joint, hand fit to make this generation of D-55 the lightest, loudest, and best-sounding yet.
The D-55 hosts the classic Guild headstock which is fully bound and features the Guild “Peak and Shield” inlay combination over a figured ebony overlay. The matching ebony fingerboard is also fully bound and inlayed with Guild’s iconic abalone/pearl “V-Blocks” and multi-line “railroad track” purfling on the bass and treble sides.
The D-55 has an all-mahogany neck with beautiful walnut center seam running the length of the heel to headstock. This D-55’s nitro finish is Antique Burst and is hand sprayed for minimum thickness and maximum resonance that will only get better with age.
Here at the Knighton Music centre we offer the option of fitting an LR Baggs pickup system as recommended by Guild themselves, and each guitar includes a hand-signed certificate of authenticity and ships with Guild’s Premium humidified hardshell case.
