    Guild D55 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (with Case) Product Description

    Guild has been building dreadnought acoustic guitars since 1963, and Their instruments are revered for their value, reliability, and tone. This robust, high-volume body style was developed with an emphasis on string-to-string balance, so that treble, mid and bass registers project evenly.

    The result is one of the most musically versatile dreadnought guitars available. Their flagship model, the D-55, was introduced in 1968 as a special order-only item, but the response was so strong that within a few years it became a regular production model. The D-55 is prized by players worldwide for its rich, balanced sound and uncompromising specifications.

    Features include a solid AAA Sitka spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck, ebony bridge, bound ebony fingerboard with mother of pearl and abalone block position inlays, classic "G"-shield logo, and pure nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
