Introducing the Guild D-55 GSR: A Musical Legacy Continues

* NOTE - You will get the guitar in the PHOTOS and VIDEO

At Terry Carter Music Store, customers can't help but get excited about the Guild D-55 GSR Acoustic Guitar. This iconic instrument has a rich history dating back to 1968 when it was first introduced as a special-order model.

Its popularity soared when it was famously played by Tommy Smothers on the Smothers Brothers Show in the late '60s. Now, it's available in a special edition, the GSR D-55 70th Anniversary Limited, and customers are in for a treat.

Exquisite Craftsmanship: The Guild D-55's Stunning Details

The Guild D-55 GSR boasts stunning craftsmanship and exquisite details. Its Madagascar Rosewood face is adorned with a mother-of-pearl Guild Peak and G-shield inlays on the fully bound headstock.

The top, made from aged Adirondack Spruce with hand-scalloped braces, features an ornate Abalone rosette and matching purfling inlay. This guitar exudes elegance.

Designed for Performance: Features That Shine

Crafted using traditional hide glue, the back and sides of the guitar are made from exotic Madagascar Rosewood, displaying beautiful figured grain lines. The Ebony fingerboard, mahogany neck, and Walnut center seam strip are a perfect combination. Guild's iconic Abalone/Pearl V-blocks and a commemorative "Winged G" at the 12th fret add a touch of sophistication.

With gold Gotoh open-gear tuners, Evo gold frets, and a dovetail neck joint, this guitar is designed for performance. Its hand-sprayed gloss nitrocellulose finish ensures minimum thickness and maximum resonance.

Each piece comes with a specially numbered and signed certificate of authenticity and a soundhole cut-out hand signed by the Guild USA build team. Plus, it's protected in Guild's premium humidified hard-shell case.

Limited Edition: Guild's 70th Anniversary Tribute Guitar

This special edition is limited to just 70 pieces worldwide, commemorating Guild's 70th anniversary from 1953 to 2023. At Terry Carter Music Store, customers have the chance to own a piece of musical history with the Guild D-55 GSR Acoustic Guitar. Don't miss out on this opportunity to elevate your music to the next level.

      * CUSTOM SETUP - Although each instrument comes with a factory setup, it is strongly recommended to consider adding a custom setup. This is especially important if you value ease of playability, suffer from arthritis, have specific preferences for your setups, or desire a low action (i.e., minimal distance between strings and fretboard). In order to explore these customization options, simply click the "ADD SETUP" button below.

      * REQUIRED FOR WARRANTY - To ensure your warranty is valid, it's crucial to use a humidifier, which is strongly recommended regardless of where you live. Not only do humidifiers safeguard your investment, but they also facilitate the warranty process by demonstrating that you have taken precautions to protect your ukulele. When making a warranty claim, it is likely that they will inquire about your use of a humidifier.

      * A PICKUP (several brands available) - There are several brands available for pickup - simply click on "ADD PICKUP". However, it's important to note that install times may vary. If you require your instrument sooner, we recommend utilizing the RUSH pickup option.
