    When you do not know it too, it is best to buy a guitar of this price a seller account and especially confidence!
    In addition, be aware that the current Guild United States are no longer made by Fender but Guild (which bought the brand a few years he Yadji).
    So I advise plutt to purchase a Guild D55 "Westerly" (named after the original factory)
    Compared to "CHARACTERISTICS", the Guild D55 is a quality finish at least an equivalent Gibson or a Martin D41 Humminbird. This means more upscale than the Martin D35.
    I put 10 without problem: the price is far from the have CHARACTERISTICS equivalents at Martin or Gibson.

    UTILIZATION

    Caution is a big trs Dreadnought body with a super deep: should try it (videmment!) before buying it because a bp can cause small jigs.
    Otherwise RAS ...
    The handle is perfect (for me anyway), the guitar is trs beefy, perfectly balance, trs enjoyable in hand: the comfort!

    So I put 10 for "Use"

    SOUNDS

    The broad field o sound tastes and colors not discuss too ...
    For there are against obviousness that it is better not to look around: when looking for a Martin, Obviously you must buy a Martin ...
    The Guild D55 is closer to a Gibson Hummingbird as a Martin D35 or D41. But do not compare oranges, apples and bananas: this guitar lacks neither low nor projection! The Guild D55 does not sound absolutely like a Martin D35 is perfect as is!
    I should put 8 or 9 for "sound" because the sound perfection is not of this world!
    But when you love, you do not count: it is 10!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought my Martin Premire in 1975 and I've known a dozen since. I do not learn to make one that Martin guitars of good trs trs CHARACTERISTICS brands. I loved the (s) sound (s) Martin, but I also had rgulirement want to play on other guitars. It's like I had a Gibson 2. I kept a Hummingbird (1967) for years before me btement Sparer ... I did not know that reputable Guild (especially for 12-string) o until the D55 is going on in my hands.
    I won t IMMEDIATE ... Unlike what I thought, Guild autrechose is really a sort of halfway between Martin and Gibson. This is not a all. In fact, we must try to understand ...
    The particular feature I like most? The D55 has a personality that is unique, but not intrusive. This is the most versatile folk than any I had.
    I should put 8 or 9 in overall rating, because what we gain in flexibility, you lose a little forcment excellence in a field prcis. But the I compare with 2 MODELS worth 5 times its price!
    So ultimately, it is logical for a guitar 10 that will accompany me for a long time I am trs trs sr

    This guitar is DISREGARDED I think what is best in terms of sound (apart from the custom shop and other rarities (vintage or not)). The choice of wood is ultra high-end, the finish is perfect, the long pitch provides low and with an incomparable richness humlmingbird, I also possdde. The D55 is scratching ze, believe me. Try also its equivalent in jumbo, the F50 and f50R. In a comparable gisbon dove, D45 or D35 martin. This is well above.

    Created in the late 60s, the Dreadnought model has quickly become the "star" of a brand that was known for its Jumbo. This new Guild had the advantage of inheriting the full and balanced his sisters while meeting the market's enthusiasm for the Dreadnought shape (which became very fashionable). I confirm that the similarity in sound reproduction with rosewood Jumbo (the Guild F50R) is really amazing. To say that this guitar is a jumbo atypioque "re-bodied" in Dreadnought, there is not that I not cross. But in terms of architecture and sound it is obvious that the D55 does not match the standard "D" as invented by Martin and taken up by many other brands.

But in terms of architecture and sound it is obvious that the D55 does not match the standard "D" as invented by Martin and taken up by many other brands.

    Level violin, the D55 models rivals much more expensive at Gibson, Taylor and Martin. It has a quality finish that has little to envy to a Martin D45 or Gibson J200 one.
    Personally, I prefer the simplicity of a D28 or D45, the look and feel very "lespaulien" of the D55. But first we choose a guitar for her and then .... ben .... I confess that it is very easy these beautiful woods, these mechanical Rolls, ect .... The only detail a bit "too-much", it is encrusted with shells on the table ;-)

    UTILIZATION

    It is a massive guitar is extremely comfortable. I am not a "wide gauge", instantly I found my bearings while I was initially more attracted to the "lightness" of a Martin D28 or Gibson J45. In fact, the D55 is among all the guitars I tried, the one that seemed best to combine "held" and "flexibility", "density" and "responsiveness". I play very often amplified and I think the rigidity of the guitar part to its excellent resistance to feedback. I tested my system electro (LRBaggs M1) on guitars lighter that actually proved to be more feedback-prone.

    The handle is perfect for me easier to play than my telecaster ;-)

    It's easy to live with a guitar: it collects the changes in temperature and humidity in stride.

    SOUNDS

    In my opinion, the D55 has an excellent projectivity without affecting the tonal balance of the guitar.
    The bass are present but without emphasis (compared to a MartinD35, for example). The spectrum of mediums is broad, rich in harmonics .... it's really "singing". The highs are soft and very warm without missing a definition or clarity. Less air than a Gibson J200, the timbre of the D55, however, is broader, deeper .... much larger as well. Less explosive than Martin, the dynamics of the Guild is much less oriented "blue grass" / "roots". It's really not in a register "rustic" but not without paying a preciousness to Taylor.
    Guild is traditionally known for its very "nature" of these guitars and the D55 is no exception: no characteristic "hyper typed" but always made a full, hot, and which finds its natural place in any style.

    On his last? No, obviously not! and it would be naive to think that even scratches can bring all the qualities of the earth. But I still can not imagine anyone could be "disappointed" by this guitar is what can be so tight to a scratch that does not sound Martin? or would it make so many D55 "bad apples" in circulation?

    OVERALL OPINION

    I was actually recommended the purchase of a recent Guild: The "Corona" (the name of the Fender factory, which had taken over the mill's historic Westerly) and those from the very beginning of the era " Tacoma "which is the current plant (and the same as the Tacoma guitars that are also part of the group Fender). However, I tried a new D55 (thus Tacoma) last year that sounded very well. As well or better - still in its genre - other new models I tried in the store (Gibson J200, Hummingbird, Martin D45 ... D28, HD28, Taylor ... ...). For my part, I have an old model of Westerly ten years which gives me total satisfaction.

    Hopefully Fender (the owner of Guild for 95) will work to perpetuate the skills of a brand that for 50 years had managed to cultivate "his" difference. But since Fender has announced that the Guild factory would move again in 2008 (the third relocation in 7 years!) Aficionados of the brand fear the worst: after being hosted by Fender in California and in Tacoma in the state Washington is soon in New Jersey in ... Ovation (one of the last acquisition of FMIC) that the production unit will redeploy United States Guild ...

    I document a lot, I try a lot of guitars and really brainstormed before investing in this guitar:
    I fanstasmais for years on a Gibson J200 ...
    The reason I said "not seek 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. ---> Martin D28 "....
    I had been a two fingers to fall for a good old J45 nasal ...
    And it is ultimately a big blow to the heart that has tipped the balance
    If it again? .. ben really hesitate shorter ;-)

    The top-level violin and mechanical.
    no microphone on the model I bought
    no Venetian cutaway.
    One of the finest aesthetic market

    UTILIZATION

    Super but on no cutaway so access to very high notes limited.
    Good grip and good balance. Guitar relatively light for such a template.

    SOUNDS

    Excellent.
    Everything is there.
    The sound is excellent without being flattering.
    Agreements without any aggressiveness perfectly sound and remain very clear.
    Arpeggio or a pick, this guitar is a delight.

    Yet it is manufactured in New Hartford. I think the sounds of manufacturing defects are unfounded rumors.

    Rue de Douai, a salesman trying to convince me of this rumor by testing two models before me, a Westerly and New Hartfor in a strumming of hell.
    But the Guild New Hartford was doing both and I preferred even the D55 New Hartford store opposite! (See note below)

    If you are unsure about a model search New Harford tests on YOUTUBE. I guarantee you that the NH are also good. In addition they have improved the game for Talon finest.

    OVERALL OPINION


    What thing do you like most/least about it?

    the sound and feel. at least no cutaway.

    Did you try many other models before getting this one?
    Yes, Gibson J200, Hummingbird, Martin and Taylor
    I do not like Gibson's I find they sound plastoc ..
    Martin's were good but I prefer the Guild.
    For Taylor, see below.

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?
    excellent and justified

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
    Yes but I also own a Taylor 614 CE, these 2 guitars are complementary. They are all superb and excellent in two different domains. For his generous folk with serious ultra-present my preference goes to the Guild, for fantastic solos I prefer the Taylor. But I am absolutely delighted to have the 2. Important note: the sound of a guitar varies enormously from one room to another, then one store to another! I thank the shops of the rue de Douai Paris where you can really test the guitars. For any cons MUSIKIA to review huge uproar .. .. impossile trying.

    The Guild D55 is a dreadnought acoustic guitar, consisting of just acoustic capabilities and no pick ups.  I honestly don't know too much about the make up of the wood in this guitar, but I do know that it has an absolutely beautiful look and feel.

    UTILIZATION

    Playing the Guild D55 is like a dream.  It's got one of the most fluid acoustic guitar necks that I've played, which is saying a lot as I've had my hands on a high number of different acoustic guitars over the years.  The guitar is about the standard size and weight that you would expect from a dreadnought guitar.  I've never felt that it was hard to play anywhere along the neck of the guitar, except for the upper most notes,......

    UTILIZATION

    Playing the Guild D55 is like a dream.  It's got one of the most fluid acoustic guitar necks that I've played, which is saying a lot as I've had my hands on a high number of different acoustic guitars over the years.  The guitar is about the standard size and weight that you would expect from a dreadnought guitar.  I've never felt that it was hard to play anywhere along the neck of the guitar, except for the upper most notes, which can be hard to reach on any acoustic guitar.  Achieving a nice sound from the D55 isn't hard for those that can play - if you do your job rest assured that this will take care of the rest!


    SOUNDS

    The Guild D55 acoustic guitar isn't too bright like a lot acoustic guitars, as it has a very well rounded tone.  It has the full sound that you'd expect from a dreadnought and then some.  While it isn't too bright, it still cuts through very well and I believe that it would fit in with any genre of music that you would want to use an acoustic guitar on.  I've never used this guitar on the stage, but inside of the recording studio I've never had an instance where I wasn't happy with the end product in terms of tone that I got from the guitar...


    OVERALL OPINION

    I honestly can't say a bad thing about the Guild D55.  In the times that I have used it for recording it has been an absolute pleasure to work with.  The guitar is built extremely well, and Guild is a company that I wholeheartedly trust as most of the guitars they make are of very high quality.  Of course with top tier quality comes top tier price, so you should know that you're spending a pretty penny for the D55.  Having said this, if you're looking for a go to acoustic guitar for recording or shows that you can rely on to give you a great sound day in and day out, the D55 will do that for you.  While definitely a large investment, I would recommend the Guild D55 to anyone looking for a great acoustic guitar.
