The Guild D-55E is Guild’s top-of-the-line, American-made model, representing a true Dreadnought tour de force. We’ve had this stunning guitar on order for months now, and it’s certainly been worth the wait. With its AAA Sitka Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Nitrocellulose finish and LR Baggs Anthem pickup, the core components for greatness are all in place. The D55E is more than the sum of its parts, however, which makes it, in all likelihood, the best dreadnought you will ever play.

Now available from Merchant City Music, online and in our Glasgow store’s dedicated acoustic room, we highly recommend visiting us in the shop to try out this extremely special guitar for yourself. Alternatively, buy online for fast and secure shipping to the UK, Europe and beyond.

Guild D-55E Natural with LR Baggs Anthem System

First introduced in 1968 as a special-order top-of-the-line model, the D-55 was so well-received that Guild added it into the regular production line by 1974. Famously played by Tommy Smothers on the Smothers Brothers Show in the 1960s, the D-55 grew in both popularity and longevity over the decades, finding homes in the hands of more contemporary artists like Waylon Jennings, Billie Joe Armstrong, and David Nail. The most anticipated return of a Guild acoustic to date, the Guild D-55 is back and better than ever.

The D-55 remains true to all the premium appointments of its 1968 predecessor, including a AAA Sitka spruce top, solid Indian Rosewood back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge, and nitrocellulose finish. Internal refinements include scalloped Adirondack bracing as well as an improved dovetail neck-joint, hand fit to make this generation of D-55 the lightest, loudest, and best-sounding yet.

The D55 showcases Guild’s most recognisable headstock which is fully bound and features the Guild “Peak and Shield” inlay combination over a figured ebony overlay. The matching ebony fingerboard is also fully bound and inlayed with Guild’s iconic abalone/pearl “V-Blocks” and multi-line “railroad track” purfling on the bass and treble sides. The D-55’s fingerboard is set on an all-mahogany neck with beautiful walnut center seam running the length of the heel to headstock. The D-55’s nitro finish is hand sprayed for minimum thickness and maximum resonance that will only get better with age.

This D55E variant includes an An LR Baggs Anthem pickup system, as well as a hand-signed certificate of authenticity. It ships with Guild’s Premium humidified hardshell case.
