|Comments||Here’s a lovely 1980 Guild D-55 NT Natural Dreadnought. The D-55 was the top of Guild’s dreadnought line, and was available with a sunburst finish in the top or, as with this example, a natural finish. Built in the Westerly, Rhode Island plant, this fine example of Guild’s production illustrates why Guild guitars gained their reputation for quality and solid construction.
This guitar has a full, rich tone and great projection. It’s been played, but also well cared for.
