|Comments||Here is a beautiful 2009 Guild D-55 Dreadnought steel string. This is pretty much the top of the line for Guild dreadnoughts, and this example is in near-mint condition.
The Guild D-55 was introduced in 1968 and is known not just for its looks but for its full, rich, balanced sound. This is really worth looking at and listening to if you’re considering a dreadnought.
