    Our price:

    Vintage Guild D-40 Bluegrass Jubilee for the singer/songwriters! This 1964 classic is one excellent sounding and playing guitar. A player doing all the picking and strumming you need.

    This vintage 1964 Guild d-40 Bluegrass Jubilee was made in Hoboken NJ during the first model years of the D40, Guild’s first dreadnought. She has the new Guild X that was introduced in that year and still the 1 3/4″ nut, a feature that was discontinued in 1966. All original, right down to the open back Grover tuners. The arched hardshell case also appears original.

    The guitar has a solid German Spruce top (nicely aged), solid Mahogany back and sides and Rosewood bridge and fretboard. She is an excellent flat-picking and strumming guitar, as you would expect, but the wider spacing make her a great finger picker as well. She produces a very loud dry woody Mahogany sound. The low action and the nice d-shape neck make her very comfortable to play.

    Her condition is EXCELLENT. One repaired crack due to the shrinking of the pickguard; a common problem with vintage guitars. A new bone bridge nut was made and delivers an excellent intonation. Fretwork is excellent. Tuners work good. No other repairs. The usual dings and scratches are visible. The pictures give a good idea of the cosmetic condition. Nothing serious.  Guild fans, you won’t find many of these left, and it’s ready to play right out of the case!
