Description

Spectacular sounding Guild D-40E from 1967 – rare and sought after model, with impressive vintage sound!

Guild is one of the big US-American manufacturers of guitars beside Martin and Gibson. The company was founded in 1952 by Alfred Dronge and George Mann. By 1956 Guild was already so successful that they had to move to larger premises in Hoboken, New Jersey. Here some of the Guild guitars that are in great demand today were built.

During the 1950’s and 1960’s, Guild supplied many of the famous musicians and became increasingly popular.

From this golden age of Guild comes this great D-40E. The D-40 was launched in 1963 along with D-50. These dreadnoughts were designed for balance and projection to help the guitars stand out against a full bluegrass band. This is a rare D-40E model with factory built in electronics.

It sounds resonant and punchy, with a full tone and great clarity and definition. It’s a very responsive guitar, with a very comfortable action and a great feeling neck. The pickup works well and produces a very nice vintage sound!

The guitar has the center seam reglued and 2-3 other tiny repairs. Overall it is in great vintage condition, with the right amount of wear from play and use.

It comes with the original hard case.
