Made in the Westerly, Rhode Island, plant in only the sixth year of production for the classic Bluegrass D-25M model, this wonderful dreadnought has been dominating lesser instruments for 36 years. It has been played lovingly but hard, and it has the resonance of its aged woods to prove it. The dark reddish finish makes it stand out in a crowd, but it’s the huge sound that will make other musicians turn around to check it out.


 


This original Guild D-25 has a solid mahogany top (the spruce top D-25 was introduced in 1976) and solid mahogany back, sides, and neck. The dreadnought style body is bound in black top and back, with a classic tortoise pick guard, a rosewood bridge with black pins, and a three-stripe rosette. The 14/20 fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlay ends in three-per-side chrome tuners and the screened headstock logo.


 


The neck on this guitar is straight and true, the top is flat, and the neck joint is solid, but there are several professionally repaired cracks: two from the sound hole to the end, two on either side of the neck, and a slight opening of the center seam. All have been glued and cleated, and all are solid; they just look cool. The bridge has apparently been professionally re-set some time recently. As you can see, there is a vintage DeArmond 130 pick-up clipped into the sound hole, which works fine. I can only add that it sounds great now and apparently has done so for many years.


 


The many small cosmetic items are typical of any guitar which has been played for four decades, primarily consisting of some finish crazing, a few dings at the bottom of the lower bout and around the bottom edges, and some pick wear below the sound hole. These are too small to be clearly visible in the pictures, but picture 3 shows some typical wear marks. While this is still a truly attractive instrument, it is a real Guild, “Made to be Played,” full of character, and it has been making music and turning heads for a generation. Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, it will pass into the hands of a player able to make music and turn heads for a generation or two to come.


 


The included vintage chip board case is in very good condition: the hardware works fine, the pick pocket is intact, and it fits perfectly. It may or may not be original, but it is the ideal complement for this vintage guitar—and of course offers more than adequate protection.


Buyer pays a low flat rate of $45 for insurance and shipping to the lower 48 states; shipping costs elsewhere will be negotiated as necessary. Payment by Paypal is preferred; cashiers and personal checks are acceptable, but checks must clear before the guitar will be shipped.


I have made every effort to describe and illustrate this guitar and case with scrupulous accuracy. Its return will not be accepted unless it can be shown that it was inadvertently misrepresented in this listing.


Good luck!
