Always wanted to own a classic American-made vintage acoustic guitar but didn't have the thousands of dollars they often cost? Well, we gotta sweet one for you here! This is a 1979 Guild D-25 arch-back acoustic-electric guitar with the original case and even the owner's manual!
This Guild was traded in by a singer-songwriter from Nashville who just happened to be gigging locally. The guitar has been on the road for a long time and does show some wear and finish checking. The D-25 has some buckle rash on the back, what might be a small cig burn on the side of upper bout and assorted normal "seasonings". But do not let that discourage you! This guitar bellows with tone!! These older Guild's had a arched back that literally barked bottom end. We have done a full shop set-up on her and I have the action nice and low! Super easy to play this girl all day. The old plank tuners have been replaced by a set of Grovers. The guitar also has had a pickup installed, actually one of those internal microphones that mount to the end of the input jack. It's powered by a 9 volt so I am gonna assume it's active. Sound real sweet plugged in!
As mentioned earlier, this guitar will ship with the original hard shell case and even the owner's manual. Very cool and collectable! Why vintage Guild's do not bring the hefty price tags that Martin & Gibson do I do not know. They should. They were hand crafted of fine tone woods by true old school craftsman. Those days are gone but this guitar is still here...and you can make it yours for not a lot of dough! Please read below for some more info on this model.
This is a classic Dreadnought-sized guitar added to the Guild line in
1968. It is the most popular Guild model ever built. Originally an
all-solid Mahogany guitar, the D-25 was switched to a Spruce top and a
laminated Mahogany arched back in 1976.
Built in Westerly, RI, has the arched back, solid
Mahogany sides, and a Mahogany-stained solid Spruce top (hence the "M").
Because of its large size and deep arched body, it has wonderful
volume, projection, and sustain. Also known as a "Bluegrass" model, the
D-25 is a great finger-picking guitar that can hold its own against a
banjo and fiddle. It is also a favorite of buskers, not only for its
volume, but because it is nearly indestructible. This is a very
solidly-built guitar that can withstand some abuse and still sound
great, or in the words of Guild, it is "Made To Be Played."
