It is a fairly faithful replica of the D55 Guild.Elle home was manufactured in the workshop in Japan Terada, these same workshop today fabricate high-end Gretsch Setzer signature or type displayed a 3000 White Falcon brouzoufs or the 90's the now coveted by Orville Gibson or epiphone later Japan.
The neck is mahogany with a rosewood fingerboard, abalone benchmarks (benchmarks BIG!) That sparkles, a spruce top and mahogany back, all, mountain recess, at that time, the cons plated or agathis did not really short.
The mechanical oil bath are stamped Terada.
pretty impressive guitar is a dreadnought pure juice, look very luxurious, much like can be a les paul custom.
go, I put 9 for features, because nowadays, a skyscraper like handcrafted in Japan revolves around a 2000 instead of 50 € that I paid into a flea market.
I find the neck very comfortable for a sound, far from certain trunk uncomfortable possibility that I could play in the past.
I want to play the scale, but I remember a violin art and spun me cramps and an entry like "learn the guitar in 6 months" off the handle like a classic ... lol. . No, nothing like that here, dish, not too wide, it disables the not too modest electric player than I am ..
I like the feel of this guitar, like big barge to which we cling, access to treble on the other hand is no top, no cutaway forces.
But I'm personally not a fan favorite because of the look of the cutaway.
and yes you get a good sound ... well I think.
I like to play a sound, I put the time but I appreciate more and more. because it's not cheating, there's just you and the guitar.
No excuse for style, "Yeah ... I ring it, but my amp is a transo rotten and my pickups are not wound in the hand by a particular sound sorcerer and I forgot my rack effects at home ... etc. ...."
If you're not good (which is my case .. lol), well ... you're no good! but it is an excellent school for learning to past agreements and your actual progress.
So this guitar .... The sound is full, loaded with enough bass, the guitar has a very large resonance.
Not easy to play discreetly with, it sounds "strong" if we can finally use that word for a sound.
great to use the old CSNY or the Stones Wild Horses.
This guitar can definitely play another register but they are not mine and I is that I know (roughly) to play correctly.
9 in a big sound as it corresponds quite had the idea that I board a Dreadnought.
I have long dreamed of a Guild D55 and drooled long before a hand model who sat to 1500 € in a mag in my area.
I like the look of this guitar not really discreet. So when I came across this beautiful Japanese at the turn of an alley of the village flea market, at first I thought a split second I was facing a real Guild Made in Westerly.
it was dirty, with strings of shit, but the first note played, you could already guess that the fair did not ask what's wake.
I had a lot of folk and ais played much but if I put aside a 20 year J45 tried y 'has been dropped and a takamine the early 80's who had left a strong impression that they is undoubtedly the most endearing.
In short, a big favorite for the Japanese virtually unknown.
Beautiful, I put two photos with this opinion that you may see by yourself, a grain superb sound, a certain comfort, this is probably not the best skyscraper in the world, but one I was looking for a true 10 by then Final Score!
