Unbelievable Tone!

1 year ago

The Guild D-140CE is amazing! Super huge thanks to my sales engineer, Justin Wofford for helping to guide me towards this guitar! He and the Sweetwater team were awesome throughout this process! The tone is just perfect! This guitar has a well-balanced sound with a crystal clear low-end, nice, robust mids, and a warm high-end that doesn't sound tinny or thin. It plays like something read more almost twice as expensive! It has a nice bit of punchiness to it, which is great for flatpicking, soloing, and fingerpicking (my preferred playing style). It also sounds incredible when strummed- a very deep, rich, resonant sound. It's lightweight but projects really nicely and has the right amount of volume! The action is great and it's easy to move around the fretboard! It looks fantastic too! Classic dreadnought with a beautiful antique burst finish, nice binding, and a cool headstock. The vintage tuners are a wonderful touch as well! The electronics are also great! The natural reverb really shines on the Guild/Fishman GT1, which has easy-to-use tone and volume knobs tucked in the edge of the soundhole. It's also important to mention that the dynamic aspect of this guitar is phenomenal! It's so transparent to the way you're playing. You don't have to play too hard or too soft to try and overcompensate for changes in dynamic or volume, which is great for live performances and for better takes in the studio! This guitar has such a great tone and classic looks! It's got a real pawn shop chic appeal to it, with an incredibly well-rounded sound! It's a really focused and sonically-driven acoustic! It's perfect if you love that deeply warm 60s and 70s folk/singer-songwriter guitar tone. For the materials, sound quality, look, and playability, I don't know that you'll find much else in this price range that can match this Guild!

It's The Best - Setup Required

Gill Fisher

I took a chance and purchased this guitar from Sweetwater sight unseen, having never played a Guild before. The guitar arrived double packaged in perfect condition, but needing a setup badly. The fret bars were terribly not even, and the intonation was off on the E, A, and D strings. The action was too high on the 1st - 5th fret. And too low above the 5th fret. After I sanded the read more fret bars to level, the Intonation adjusted itself to perfect. The action a dream. This guitar offers the finest tone I have ever heard in my life. It beats Gibson and Martin, or anything I have ever played. I just want everyone to know - get a setup and you will be extremely pleased with this guitar. Those who do not are disappointed. The price for a solid mahogany guitar like this from any other brand is 300% more. You will not be as happy paying more because this guitar delivers the power for much less. Wait until you hear the harmonics. It rings like no other guitar can. WOW!

Guild D 140 CE

Simply incredible! The D-140ce gives you the experience of a much more expensive guitar with the benefit of an affordable price. It sounds amazing-nice mids, good base, and has a good amount of sustain. I would say it compares well to a mid-level Martin or a mid-level solid b/s Taylor. The electronics are EZ to use and sound great and the finish is excellent. My only complaint read more - if I had to pick something I did not love... the strings that it shipped with but that is really a small and very subjective dislike.

Buy this guitar. It's the best quality at any price anywhere. Having never played a Guild, I would not have taken the plunge without talking to George Deng. He gave me an honest review and it was not a sales pitch. I will never forget what he said, "This one takes my heart." George was so right. I have owned many Gibson's and Martin's. This Guild beats them all for a fraction of read more the price. The traditional solid tonal wood is off the chart in appeal. Look at the list what it's made of and you will see a 1960 masterpiece with the finest material. The tone is extraordinary and will only get better each time it's played. The finish is perfect. I can't say enough good things about this amazing guitar. I would have paid twice as much for this level of quality. I can't thank George enough for steering me in the right direction. Another thing he said, "The belief that only Americans can make a guitar is REDICULAS." He is so right when it comes to this guitar. Also, Sweetwater is the best dealer. The guitar arrived on time double packed in two boxes with large thick foam protection. I could not be happier with this guitar. I have been playing for 50 years. Thank you George and Sweetwater!
