1979 Guild D40C – £1099

NEW ARRIVAL  Only made between 1975 – 1991 the D40C is the cutaway version of the more famous D40. It was produced along side the D50 and the two models became known as the ultimate bluegrass guitars – the D40 with Mahogany back and sides, and the D50 with Rosewood. This example has a fair amount of playwear, and has benefited from this with a very mature tone, giving away it’s 40 plus years of play. It sounds resonant and punchy, with a full tone and great clarity and definition. It’s a very responsive guitar, with a very comfortable playing action, and a great feeling neck. It’s a great looking guitar, the top has turned a nice honey colour and the iconic Guild tortoiseshell scratchplate contrasts beautifully. There’s plenty of light scuffs and dings, but no cracks or repairs, and the guitar is all original other than upgraded Grover tuners. It comes in a non original hard case.
