Guild D40

Guild has been building dreadnought acoustic guitars since 1963, and these instruments are revered for their value, reliability, tone, responsiveness, outstanding projection and sustain. This full-bodied, high-volume body style was developed with an emphasis on string-to-string balance, so that treble, mid and bass registers project evenly. The result is one of the most musically versatile dreadnoughts anywhere.

Another one of the first Guild dreadnoughts (originally the "Bluegrass Jubilee"), this is the model that Richie Havens played at the kickoff of the original Woodstock festival, at which thousands first heard his impromptu anthem "Freedom." Nothing sounds as warm as a Mahogany dreadnought when it’s built right, as these are, and played with feeling. The D40 features a Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, a one-piece Mahogany neck with Rosewood fretboard with Mother-of-Pearl dot position inlays, shell pickguard, and Chesterfield headstock logo.
