"Incredible Tone"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Between the reviews I've read about these new d40 TRADITIONAL guitars being made under Ren Ferguson and the one I played before purchasing are true as far as consistency goes. The tone is incredible very balanced deep warm yet bright and it works awesome for strumming flat picking and finger picking. It does it all well. There something about the sound of the highs that sound incredible and plenty of low bottom without being to boomy. The tone not only sounds incredible but it's loud as well. Very comfortable neck for me and nice low action no fret buzz. Very high quality American made acoustic that I will never depart. Great job to Ren Ferguson and his design with specs on these new Guilds.
