Guild / D40C / 1979 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Only made between 1975 - 1991 the D40C is the cutaway version of the more famous D40. It was produced along side the D50 and the two models became known as the ultimate bluegrass guitars - the D40 with Mahogany back and sides, and the D50 with Rosewood. This example has a fair amount of playwear, and has benefited from this with a very mature tone, giving away it's 40 years of play. It sounds resonant and punchy, with a full tone and great clarity and definition. It's a very responsive guitar, with a very comfortable playing action, and a great feeling neck. It's a great looking guitar, the top has turned a nice honey colour and the iconic Guild tortoiseshell scratchplate contrasts beautifully. There are no cracks or repairs, and the guitar is all original other than upgraded Grover tuners with changed buttons. It comes in a non original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
