Unparalleled Sound and Playability

The D-55 70th Anniversary edition is designed for outstanding performance. The Ebony fingerboard, coupled with a mahogany neck and Walnut center seam strip, provides a smooth and comfortable playing experience. The inclusion of gold Gotoh open-gear tuners and Evo gold frets underlines the guitar’s premium feel and reliability.

Sophistication and Balance 

Guild’s iconic Abalone/Pearl V-blocks, along with a commemorative "Winged G" at the 12th fret, add a layer of sophistication. The guitar’s hand-sprayed gloss nitrocellulose finish not only gives it a stunning look but also enhances its tonal qualities, ensuring that every note played is rich and full.
