Crafted with utmost precision, this guitar stays true to the premium appointments of the original model. It features a AAA Sitka spruce top, solid Indian Rosewood back and sides with a Walnut center seam, and an ebony fingerboard and bridge. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only enhances the guitar's visual appeal but also allows the natural resonance of the wood to shine.

Internally, the D-55E boasts scalloped Adirondack spruce bracing and an improved dovetail neck joint for optimal tonal balance and stability. These enhancements make the latest generation of the D-55E the lightest, loudest, and best-sounding version yet.

The inclusion of this premium pickup system adds versatility and enables seamless integration with amplification and recording equipment.

Featuring Gotoh gold SE700 open gear tuning machines and a bone nut and saddle, the D-55E delivers exceptional tuning stability and resonance. The guitar comes complete with a premium humidified hardshell case, offering the ultimate protection for your cherished instrument.

    This guitar plays and sounds beyond my expectations. Plays smooth as butter and sounds crisp, balanced and with an incredible low end. Worth every penny as they say.

    My dream guitar. Plays smooth like butter and sounds flawless. I own many other high end acoustic guitars but the Guild D55E lives up to my high expectations. Am over the moon with the purchase.
