Guild D-55 Acoustic Guitar 2007 Natural w/ Case

$ 2882.76

The D-55 is the flagship guitar from Guild and has been for decades.  This acoustic has an absolutely incredible voice.  With very high end specifications all around it produces a rich and very well balanced sound along with an incredible amount of sustain.  On the top there is a very nice piece of of AAA Sitka Spruce that gives you that holographic effect when the light hits it right.  The back and sides are made of Indian Rosewood with a beautiful centre stripe binding.  This gives the guitar its warm, rich and projective tonal characteristics.  The guitar is finished in Pure Nitro Cellulose which is very thin and allows these amazing tonal woods to resonate freely as they do.  This is definitely in the top 3 acoustic dreadnought guitars that I have played to date.

*Comes with Guild Archtop Case, Keys & Manual

Condition:
The previous owner of this guitar let the instrument get a little dry.  As a result the match-booked top did separate ever so slightly and also caused the lacquer cracks that you see near the sound hold by the neck.  The guitar was taken to our best local luthier where the top was hydrated, cleated, sealed and refinished.  The repair is barely noticeable but it is there.  The lacquer crack near the sound hole is only aesthetic so it was not repaired.  Please see photos for exact condition.
