Product Description

Guild has been building dreadnought acoustic guitars since 1963, and Their instruments are revered for their value, reliability, and tone. This robust, 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 dreadnought guitars available. Their flagship model, the D-55, was introduced in 1968 as a special order-only item, but the response was so strong that within a few years it became a regular production model. The D-55 is prized by players worldwide for its rich, balanced sound and uncompromising specifications.

Features include a solid AAA Sitka spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck, ebony bridge, bound ebony fingerboard with mother of pearl and abalone block position inlays, classic "G"-shield logo, and pure nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Guild products.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "I've seen other websites, but none that helped me find what I was looking for as quickly as zZounds. Their Play as You Pay installment plan allowed me to split my order into 4 monthly payments, which helped me get top quality gear right away. They are very affordable, with prices comprable to or better than other web sites that I've looked at. I know that I bought from the best!" - customer on October 8, 2014

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
