Product information - Guild D-55E Antique Sunburst

Traditional dreadnought-acoustic guitar with pickup system and including case

With the Guild D-55E Antique Sunburst, the traditional manufacturer presents an electro-acoustic dreadnought Western guitar that impresses with its timeless appearance and powerful sound. This is perfectly suited for strumming and vocal accompaniment and unfolds quickly and dominantly in the bass and midrange frequencies. Elaborate mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays emphasize the high quality of the instrument in a very tasteful way and perfectly embody the craftsmanship of the manufacturer. The Guild D-55E Antique Sunburst comes with a sturdy case.

Woods and construction

In order to produce an all-encompassing sound, the manufacturer uses a Sitka spruce top and an Indian rosewood body for the construction of the all-solid D-55E acoustic guitar, which in combination produce punchy basses as well as defined mids and clear highs. A Scalloped-X bracing and a thin nitro finish are also instrumental in producing a fast and complete sound, as they promote the vibration behavior of the woods. A flat mahogany neck with a 'C' profile and an ebony fingerboard also guarantees easy gripping of the 6 steel strings, which intonate cleanly on the long scale length of 651 mm thanks to a compensated bridge inlay and a 43 mm wide saddle made of bone.

Design and Hardware

The gold Gotoh SE700 open-gear tuners also illustrate the high quality of the instrument and enable precise tuning. The large headstock proudly displays the company logo, which harmoniously matches the high-quality mother-of-pearl and abalone V-block inlays worked into the fretboard. A generous tortoise pickguard adorns the top, which is finished in Antique Sunburst and creates an aesthetic transition of the individual color gradations. For stage use, the D-55E Dreadnought is equipped with an L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system, which makes it possible to reproduce the acoustic sound in a very natural way, even when amplified.
