Guild D25NT dreadnought acoustic with Fishman dual pickup. You'll often hear talk of how an all-solid guitar mellows with age; this one has been played and played, and it proves the theory. It has an amazing mellow, warm tone with a full, responsive midrange and a nice bite on the top. Vintage Guild guitars are pretty rare in Australia, which is a shame, as they're severely underrated in my opinion. The D25 is one of Guild's best selling models; they're a little brighter and Gibson J-45 and a little warmer than a Martin D28. The dual sensor Fishman system features a bendable piezo and condenser mic, offering a natural and easily adjustable plugged-in tone. This is a lovely USA dreadnought with heaps of character and heaps of tone.

Neck: Mahogany, rosewood fingerboard

Cosmetic condition notes: Significant pick rash, as evident in the photos. A little cracking in the lacquer around the binding near the neck joint, which is superficial only. The usual buckle rash and minor scratches, a few dings including on the headstock. Definitely played-in with a few scars to show it, but reasonable condition for a 30 year old guitar.
Playing condition notes: Medium action, neck is straight, intonation is good. Setup with Martin 80/20 bronze 12-53 gauge strings. The top is nice and flat with no bowing to speak of. Playing well, sounding amazing.
