    Our price:

    This Guild D-40E is perfect for players looking for that ultimate dreadnought sound. The classic wood combination of a solid Sitka Spruce top and solid African Mahogany back and sides provides remarkable volume, clarity and sustain.

    This Guild D-40E features an East Indian rosewood bridge and fingerboard, premium 20:1 open-gear tuners, and a hand-cut bone nut and saddle. An elegant and thin satin varnish finish gives this guitar its familiar broken-in look and feel, while allowing the tone woods to reach their optimal sonic potential. The Guild Guitar Company is a United States-based guitar manufacturer founded in 1952 by Alfred Dronge, a guitarist and music-store owner, and George Mann, a former executive with the Epiphone Guitar Company.

    The D-40E’s timeless appointments include a vintage style rosette, tortoiseshell pickguard, white ABS binding, and Guild’s peak logo inlaid on the headstock. She’s in excellent condition with only some minor scratches. Listen to a sound sample of a sister model by Sean Gold here:
