1975 Guild D 55 Vintage Spruce and Indian Rosewood

Guild's series of dreadnoughts have shared the stage with legendary artists like Johnny Cash to a newer generations like Gillian Welch and Ryan Adams. Guild introduced its flagship dreadnought, the D-55, in 1968. It was first introduced as a special order item only, but the response was so strong that within a few years it was added to the line as a regular production model. Since then, it has become synonymous with Guild's namesake. The Guild D55 is contructed of all solid wood. The top is built with AAA Grade Spruce and the back and sides feature Indian Rosewood. The D-55 has lots of presence and volume, while still maintaining balance and response. Not too punchy and but not too mellow - the D-55 is perfect for those looking for a tried and true dreadnought with vintage style.

This instrument is in good condition and has some dents and scratches as expected from a vintage instrument. Additionally, there is some crazing on the top, and a crack on the back which does not go through. We have attempted to capture most of the wear in the detailed photos below. It has moderate fretwear and includes a hardshell case.
