Guild D40 BG SOLD

This guitar is the same as the D40 BG, without the pickup, and with a more traditional natural finish. With no sunburst to cover it, the clear tight grain of the adirondack spruce top really shines. With its minimalistic detailing and top-notch construction, the D40 BG can proudly stand among the J45s, D18s, and DN5s that stand at the top of the list of classic workhorse dreadnoughts.


Guild F50R SOLD

The beauty of a Jumbo Body guitar is its ability to give out a lot of volume, but with a much clearer tone than a dreadnought. The Guild F-50R has a rich, smooth low end, but a far less overwhelming midrange than other ‘power’ guitars. This makes it an ideal instrument for many singer/songwriters; the guitar has great projection, but it manages to stay out of a vocalists way at the same time. The high end will ring out over top vocals or other instruments, while the bass provides enough sonic foundation to keep things sounding full.


Guild F47R SOLD

I’ve always been attracted to a guitar that gives you a lot of sound even with a soft touch. There’s something amazing about playing an instrument that really responds to every subtle little shift of your fingers; it makes you feel like there is one less wall between the sound in your head and what the rest of the room will hear. The Guild F47R is one such guitar. It will never be the loudest guitar in the room, but it has a beautiful sustain at any volume, even with the softest strum you can manage. The narrow waist and smaller lower bout of this Grand Orchestra Model help keep the volume and projection consistent across the entire fingerboard. The Spruce top with Rosewood back and sides combine to create an airy, open, expansive sound that stays clear and defined even at the low end.


Guild D40 BG w/ Pickup SOLD

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’.
