Introducing the Guild D-40 Standard acoustic guitar, proudly crafted in America and featuring Guild's innovative Vintage Gloss nitro finish. This new finish, a thin nitrocellulose lacquer with a blend of satin and gloss qualities, enhances the natural elegance of the tonewoods. The Vintage Gloss not only provides a vintage, worn-in feel and tone but also presents a modern, sleek appearance with its hand-sprayed soft, silky coating.

Designed to deliver the ultimate dreadnought sound, the D-40 Standard boasts a solid Sitka Spruce top paired with solid African Mahogany back and sides. The inclusion of forward-shifted scalloped Adirondack bracing adds power, nuance, and responsiveness to the guitar's tonal palette. This combination ensures remarkable volume, clarity, and sustain, making it ideal for a variety of applications, from vocal accompaniment to solo performances. Vintage charm is embodied through timeless appointments such as a tortoiseshell celluloid pickguard, white ABS binding, and Guild's peak logo inlay on the headstock.

The comfortable C-profile Mahogany neck is capped with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard, while premium features like an Indian Rosewood bridge, 20:1 open-gear tuners, and a hand-cut bone nut and saddle contribute to the guitar's overall quality. Each Guild D-40 Standard comes complete with a Guild archtop wood case featuring a built-in Humicase humidification system, ensuring your instrument is protected and ready to play. Experience the unmatched craftsmanship and sonic excellence of Guild with the D-40 Standard Acoustic Guitar.
