I've owned numerous acoustic guitars ranging from mid-level to moderately high end. The D50 is amongst the best I've owned. Very warm and punchy tone that is flexible for nearly any musical style. This Tacoma, WA made guitar is rather plain in appearance but is truly excellent at what is important - making music. The red spruce top provides much headroom and the harder the strings are picked the more the top gives. The guitar can be loud if picked hard but also sound warm and clear if picked more lightly or fingerpicked. The guitar is somewhat heavy compared to, say, a Martin D-28, so that when I first picked it up I thought "man, this will sound muted and dull". I was very wrong with that thought. This is the second USA made Guild guitar that I've owned and I am very pleased with it.
Absolutely no joke, Its known that Guild gives you more for the money. At the music store sitting right along side what most consider the best, Gibson / Martins sat this beauty. In my opinion and a musician friend (25years playing ) This guitar was just as nice if not better. For under 2K you get a guitar that sounds like one in the 3K catagory. Came from a shop that puts out low volumn ,giving more attention to quality (Tacoma Wash.) Check it out.
