For anyone looking to find a quality alternative to overpriced Gibsons and Martins, this is it. The Guild D40 Ritchie Havens Signature with Fishman Acoustic Matrix pickup is a wonder to behold and a delight to play. The action was perfect when I received it. It arrived strung with 12's and when I tuned it up and played the first chord...WOW is all I can say. Solid Sitka Spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides give me the perfect sound. Machine heads are chrome Grovers and keep the guitar in perfect tune. Being as this is the Ritchie Havens signature model it comes with a top pickguard, which is not installed. So if you want the look of Ritchie's D40 you can have it. I prefer just the single pickguard, myself. The truss rod cover has Ritchie's signature on it. The finish is a high gloss nitro-cellulose laquer and is just beautiful. The fretboard has pearl dot inlays. The guitar also comes with an excellent hardshell case. All in all, a great bang for your buck. And it's made in the USA.
