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.

Serial Number DE100684, dates to late 1980. Built at the Guild plant in Westerly, Rhode Island.
Pricing $1,899.00 CAD with original case. SOLD
Neck Mahogany neck with bound ebony fingerboard; mother of pearl block position markers with abalone V inserts. Mother of pearl Guild and G-shield logo on the bound headplate.
Frets Original frets with some wear, particularly in the lower positions, but quite playable as is and there’s lots of fret left.
Body Guild dreadnought body, with spruce top and indian rosewood back and sides. Multiple layer binding on the top and back.
Finish Original gloss finish in good condition. There are no major dings or scratches, though there is a small amount of normal wear on the pickguard.
Hardware/electronics Gold Guild-branded tuners, probably made by Schaller, bone saddle.
Playability/Action Plays quite well. Has a very solid feel, and plays cleanly and clearly.
Case Original hardshell case included, in 7/10 condition.
