Guild D-55 Antique Sunburst

2-3 Days Guild D-55 Antique Sunburst


The Guild D-55 in Antique Sunburst is another superb dreadnought from Guild guitars USA. Originally a special order, this top of the range model was so well received that it became part of the regular production line. The D-55 Acoustic is faithful to all its original 1968 predecessor, including AAA Sitka spruce tops, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge with the nitrocellulose finish. A few minor alterations in the form of scalloped Adirondack bracing and an improved dovetail neck-joint making this D55 the lightest, loudest and best sounding version yet!

Guild Styling

The cosmetic finish on this gorgeous looking guitar is instantly recognizable. Starting at the headstock with the fully bound edge Guild "Peak and Shield" inlay over a figured ebony veneer. Matching ebony fingerboard with binding complement and ooze style with the abalone/pearl "V-Blocks" and railroad track purfling along the bass and treble sides. A real eye-catching piece of USA acoustic guitar keeping the heritage brand very much so on the map as a real serious contender.  The AAA Sitka spruce and solid Indian Rosewood combination deliver the fantastic tone and character so familiar with such choice tonewoods. Finished with a nitro coating by hand for minimal thickness and maximum resonance that will mature and develop with you.

All finish with a hand-signed certificate of authenticity and shipped in a Guild hardshell case to protect your new love.
