ericthegreat's review "as good as any other"

4
The Guild D4 was made in the USA and is not an electric - acoustic so it doesn't have a pick up or any control knobs. To me, its fine that it is just acoustic as I use it for recording only, as it is one of the best sounding guitars on the planet for recording, in my opinion.


UTILIZATION

This guitar is extremely fluid and easy to play. It is easy to play anywhere on the neck and feels fluid overall. It is the perfect shape and weight, which adds to its overall feel and ease of use. The body is big which adds to its full sound - this is one of the fullest sounding acoustic guitars I have ever used. To get a good tone, all you have to do is pick it up and play!


SOUNDS

For recording, I think the sound of the Guild D4 is just about as good as it gets. I always get a good sound when I record with this and it never ceases to amaze me how good this really sounds. I use it for all types of music - rock, pop, and folk as it sounds good in just about any setting. I love the sound of this guitar as it has a full body sound with a full mid sound and transparent high end.

Made in USA, model pre-tacoma.

Solid spruce, cash and sides mahogany, rosewood affects.
Mechanical Grovver precise
Matt varnish leaving sweat the wood grain, it's still pretty despite a minimum level of finish, but not sloppy either, it's still made in the USA. He prefers the wood rather than the decoration on the mid-range.
One detail: the back of the body is curved for more sound projection, I think it's the most beautiful effect.

UTILIZATION

Comfort handle undeniable grip ultra fast barre chords on top of the handle are a comfort ... access to acute complicated but it is a dreadnought so normal.
The box is small for a dreadnought, but the sound quality is not altered.
Slight in comparison to my previous Japanese ship.

Accuracy of notes in arpeggios, no frieze across the sleeve. And important detail, no fatigue of the fingers and wrist after 2-3 hours of play is significant.

One downside: no ties to strap on the bottom of the inning.

SOUNDS

HUGE!

If you are looking for a blues guitar style but still versatile to play folk, pop, and country music, this guitar does so without complex compared to high-end brand.

The Guild print is there: velvety bass, midrange well marked, and crystalline highs to perfection associated with a very good substain. It gives full capacity blues songs played on the fingers by not hesitating to go frankly. A very good sound projection for a dreadnought with a box so small, I'm still pleasantly surprised. A model that sounds very "Roots" in the end.

This is what I was looking for a long time hence the 10/10.

Associated with strings Martin SP 12/54, the sound is remarkable. Never tested with Elixirs.

OVERALL OPINION

I was looking for a solid wood guitar U.S. without much ruin me for a few months when I fell on this occasion in D4. It dates from 97 and had not been used extensively in view of the frets and general health. I tried Guild models at the same price but manufactured in China and a Martin DM and although the quality of decoration on Chinese models was over, I was not convinced by the sound. There's no laying of stones to say that Americans have the know-how.
At the sound, it really has nothing to be ashamed to face big guns of the brand. Everything is there except the finishing touches and it is not displease me.

If you come across in OCCAZ, do not hesitate, try it.

It's a guitar in the tradition of guilds, but largely unknown, made in United States, solid mahogany body, back slightly arched, very good quality for the violin, she can play style enormously.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very enjoyable to play, the sound is perfectly diffuse, it is very balanced, the bass and treble are presented clearly evident from the overall sound has a very nice note sustain.

SOUNDS

I play mostly blues (and I go to jazz!) Is perfect, at the time the salesman advised me this guitar for blues because it releases a lot of volume and sustain, I repeated, but it is perfect styles suitable for classical, pop, country etc. ..

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most, sound quality, violin, GUILD course, aesthetics.
comes with a bag of very good quality, price quality is (was) a positive surprise for a guild. experience with the YES! I would do this choice, very nice guitar that unfortunately no longer produced, mine was in 1998, and is very rare occasion.
