I just received this very guitar today, I got the D-240e about 2 weeks ago and thought that was amazing but this guitar is unbelievable. I got a Taylor 114ce a year ago and this guitar being cheaper in price is far superior in sound, feel and playability. The sustain is incredible and the notes ring clearly and the separation is beautiful. This guitar is not a USA made Guild but the quality and build quality is superb. The case it comes with is like a hard-shell but has straps like a backpack. It has crushed green velvety material inside. I couldn't be happier with a guitar. If this guitar is this great, I can only imagine how good a D-55 would be. My guess is that it is better but not by much. This guitar is amazing for the price, you really can't get a better guitar for the price hands down. You almost surely won't find an American made one for the price much less a build quality this amazing.
