I wanted a guitar so we could have a massive tool that ages well.

I did not want a cutaway guitar behind me but his bluff and test despite having tried other guitars at the same time it (including a Yamaha LL and GAD- 50) I broke down and ben .. worse time for this kind of dtails if it is comfortable and has a sound. (I rflchis from the pan once and I plan as a benefit slide soloing and rhythm on the other

UTILIZATION

Channel trs enjoyable, action can be a little high in its original rglage see the hard (the game will be the slide can be easy as we shall see, but good as I was not the same guitar but not everyone)

and then if I just wanted a "nice guitar" I would not buy it l.
BMOL on the handle and varnish, it needs to be done, both more used satin sleeves Drout is enough to beginners in contact (I quibble).

SOUNDS

Graves amazingly deep for a cutaway guitar ...
(Compare GAD-50 Rosewood, the 40-C has avre much richer, warmer and more powerful, which really surprised me and changed my opinion compltement ( I was aiming plutt Taylor or Martin so far, but I wanted to try a Guild to get to the bottom and no regrets).

While the highs are not as can be on a Taylor Defines precisely (though having an essay of 110 and 214

Difference is not obvious). The sound is terrible to sustain and projection quite impressive.
(A comparison can be only the Martin D-15 s'rvle if "cause").

I plan relonger mainly in the acoustic blues and a little rock, folk ballads and other more time, "Mademoiselle" with versatile air, we should hear and make a whole stretch of road .. so as I Espree it ages well.

OVERALL OPINION

Report quality almost unbeatable price, but it is a choice of heart knowing that other models are equally

INTERESTED in other brands below 1000 euros, .. Taylor, Martin D-15, see GAD-50 (may be the silent MODEL I tried it a little lower?
Or my GAD-40C it is lucky? not wanting to take the risk and make me blow the merchant, the community is now home.
(It is also supplied with a rigid tui Tweed trs "Vintage" the most charming effect (gray-brown with leather and old mtal)

---------------------
APRS said one month of intensive use,
The action is not at all too high, and the strings are not hard at all in fact (even if the yamaha silent easier to play). The great mistake of my fingers itches lctrique little worker ... In short I withdraw all my BTIS on this subject .. The same applies to the coating of the handle that I found a little sticky or tacky .. it must be of a cleaning .. Or the also got used to my hands ..
brief ... I say anything more, it is simply the super scratching.
"Just a good guitar" could also be a good slogan for Defines ..

I will not dwell on the features, everything is said on the site GUILD.

The'm going to add that if you are reluctant to buy Chinese, with this guitar, among other things, we must forget.
The finish is exemplary, far better than some GIBSONS Acoustic, which I possessed. I have 2 Martin, a D28 and D40 TOM PETTY signature and the Guild does not have to blush before the D28, on the contrary.

American guitar design that is machined in China, but today when we know the pieces are cut by routers digital, with an accuracy of one micron, why would not she good? As long as one is careful to assemble, (And the Chinese are) and that it uses high quality wood, we can only do it well.
The table is in a beautiful spruce, is solid mahogany, with a handle carved in one piece. I wanted a mahogany body for a sound a little different.
Note that the frets are made of bone. The varnish is very good. And all delivered in a beautiful box rigid.

UTILIZATION

The handle is a real highway, and access to acute without problems. I just filed down to 2 mm the bridge saddle, because the original action is a bit high for my taste ..

SOUNDS

I climb with ropes Martin SP 12/54 Bronze and I was amazed by the overall balance of this guitar and especially the deep bass, rare on a slant.

OVERALL OPINION

That's all I have 10, because I have evidence of comparison, with acoustic guitars tees upscale, and that to have such quality in Martin, Taylor or Gibson, it will pay faloir 3 to 4 times more.
Undoubtedly a very very good guitar ... and that, given the price, I can get to the beach, I've never done with my martin.
A BUY WITHOUT MODERATION.
