In the '60s and '70s, Guild was an accessible choice for simple, unassuming and affordable American-made flat-tops. These well-made guitars inspired everything from protest songs to rock and roll epics. Although they capture much of the same mojo and refined tone you expect from a vintage guitar, today's collector market just doesn't prize these instruments as much as other brands (that may be perceived as more high end). But that's not such a bad thing, is it? These great-sounding guitars are some of the best value you'll find in any shop.
This 1972 Guild D-40 "Bluegrass Jubilee" was made in Westerly, Rhode Island. It is in very good condition all around with just the right amount of wear. Its bridge has been re-glued, and it sports a non-original saddle, but it plays well with medium action. Its original frets are clean with plenty of life left, and it still has its original tuning machines, too. This would be a great flat-pickers guitar, but it would also accompany voice well. Its tone is warm and rich with more subtlety than cut. Original case included and Owner's Manual included!
