First up, we have a true powerhouse: the D40 Bluegrass Jubilee. Representing Guild’s take on a true classic, this guitar has all the warmth, punch, and clarity a dreadnought player could want. With its thumpy lower midrange, it has a distinctly ‘vintage’ sound; reminiscent of those J-45s from the 50′s we’ve all drooled over at one point or another. The scalloped spruce bracing allows lots of movement from the top, giving the D40 BG a great amount of volume, and i bit more presence in the attack and note fundamental than I usually expect from a guitar with so much ‘warmth’.

This D40 BG also features the DTAR Wave-Length pickup and pre amp system. This system combines an 18 volt primp with an ultra thin piezo transducer, giving far more headroom on the input and output than your average pickup. A hard right hand attack won’t clip out or distort, and you get a nice strong signal level on the way out, all while retaining the natural transparent tone of your guitar.
