Guild D-40 USA Dreadnought 6-String Acoustic Guitar
This USA Series D-40 appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Guitars Under $2000 from September 2019 until August 2021 when it was out-ranked by several Martin guitars including their D-15M.
Part of Guild's premium line of traditionally crafted guitars, the D-40 showcases what the brand is all about.
It is a modern recreation of the original D-40 from the '60s that up to this day are still highly revered and in-demand.
Continuing the legacy of its namesake, the current line of D-40s sports an all solid tonewood body, with its top crafted from solid Adirondack spruce, while solid mahogany is used for the back and sides.
Supporting the top are scalloped Adirondack spruce bracings, which also improves resonance.
It also features bone nut and saddle, a mahogany neck, and a dovetail joint.
Cosmetic appointments include a tortoiseshell pickguard, binding and rosette, and it is wrapped in premium nitro finish to complete its classic feel and appearance.
