I wasn't sure about buying this guitar, but I decided to try it because it was the least expensive all solid wood guitar that I could find. The fact that is also comes with a case was what really made me roll the dice and order it back in February of 2015. So, I've had it for a few months now.

I also ordered new bridge pins called "power pins" and installed them into the guitar's bridge as you can see in the attached pictures.

You can't compare the D-125 to a high end Martin, Taylor, Gibson etc. My HD28 has way more thump and complex tones, but the Guild D-125 really does have a beautiful and unique sound. It is it's own guitar. It sounds bright and rings out in a bell like chime yet also has some great low end growl.

It records really well and as a matter of fact I prefer the recorded sound of the D-125 over the Martin. I'm sure that would sound crazy to some people, but it really is just so easy to get some great recordings with it.

The playability is excellent although a bit different from what I was expecting. It took me a few days to get use to it. Every time I take it out of the case and feel that neck in my hands it still amazes me how fun it is to play and how sweet it sounds.

I didn't have any problems. The guitar came in perfect condition in it's awesome case. All the woods are beautiful to look at. Top, back, sides, neck and head stock with mother of pearl Guild inlay look really great. Much better in person than the pictures Musicians Friend has on their website.

If I buy another acoustic it'll probably be the Guild D-140. I think I'm going to stick with Guild for a while.

I read the other reveiws and was psyched to get this. However, regardless of the great reveiws, the two (2) I've received so far had to be returned due to quality, finish issues.

The second one, just returned today was like the first 1)great sound 2)great intonation 3)good feel/setup, however since does not have a 2-way Truss Rod(?) or is broken I could not adjust the Back-bow. The Forward-bow was as far as it should be on any well set up guitar if one likes that much. However, when attempt to adjust the Backbow to flatten out the neck the Trussrod was loose, would have unscrewed or rattled not Pulling the Neck Back (a big tech job/fix), not good or permenant fix either on New guitar.

The Third try is since - liking the Vol, Resonance, Sustain. It is Brite in Full Freq Range; it will loose some as loosens up. I just don't get how a guitar like this regardless of price/country goes out. Any neck can twist but to not have a two way truss in 21st Cent makes this risky w/3rd one too.

And, misc., really silly Finish issues that just should not be.

    Comments about Guild GAD Series D-125 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    Sound- This guitar is very well balanced and though the overtones are slightly more subdued than on a spruce top, they are by no means missing altogether. The bass is bold and the top end is clear. This guitar is quite loud which I wasn't expecting from and all mahogany guitar.

    Look- The color is beautiful and I like the striped grain. The poly is not too thick and is well applied and smooth. The headstock is plainer than some other Guilds. I actually would have preferred slightly more decoration there. Soundhole design is understated but well done.

    Feel- The action is fairly low from the factory and likely won't require a lot of set up. The satin finish on the neck provides for very smooth movement up and down. The slimmer nut and shape of the neck provides a similar feel to a 100/200 series Taylor.

      Comments about Guild GAD Series D-125 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I purchased the D-125 as an upgrade from an old Ibanez acoustic I had been using periodically for the past 7 years or so. Right out of the box the action and feel of the neck were amazing! I personally like the "beefy" low end that is mentioned in prior reviews. You can't beat the quality in the 500-750 range. Oh and they still need to change the "case included" in the description because it's a pretty sweet added bonus!

      Comments about Guild GAD Series D-125 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      Amazing guitar....if anyone doubts the ability of excellence in craftmanship and quality of wooden instruments coming out of China, think again! The woods, build quality and tone of this guitar are simply amazing for the price...actually at any price! Comes with a very decent hardshell arched case too. The woods used in this example are perfectly bookmatched and the craftsmanyship equals that of the big US manufactuers. I very much like the tone of an all mahogany acoustic, reminds me of Koa, with a bit more sustain. I must say I have had a few US Guild's back in the 70's and 80's and this GAD-125 rings closer in astetics than does the GAD-25 IMO. It's, loud and balanced across all strings, up and down the neck. No gitches in tone or appearance inside and out. The inside is impeccably clean with nary a miss anywhere. Kerfing is tall and perfectly notched, sides are vertically braced, bracing is clean and uniform, no sign of glue anywhere, finish is perfect as well...WOW, I can't believe the quality of this solid wood guitar for the price! It is evident that Guild has a close eye on this Chinese factory and the quality of their builds. I'm so glad to see Guild revived by Fender, both in the US factory and providing exceptional import quality...Kudo's to Fender! Out of the box this acoustic sounds true Guild and continues their unique tone and looks. Guild has always been true to their designs, which truly set them apart from the big three. "Meant to be Played" If I were to hit on one thing it's the three piece neck...however it has a stellar shape, somewhat narrow, but fast, a Guild tradition. A solid neck may be prettier, but is probably not a strong as a laminated heel block neck. This is simply a beautiful guitar to look at, to play and the tone is well in a word stunning. Last but not least, lets give a shout out to Musicians Friend for their service, follow-up and devotion to being IMO the best online seller of musical instruments bar none. Thank you and trust me this is a great buy for a great guitar....it's a keeper, which most likely won't wear off or grow tiring with age!

      Comments about Guild GAD Series D-125 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      This is not a MIA Guild. It is a chinese made one. It looks great, good tuners, The finish is perfect. The neck plays like butter. But the best is the Sound. I played a room full of Martins, Lakewoods, Taylor and Some Tak's. I played everything in that room and this was the last guitar I played. It was 2000 euro cheaper than the next best guitar. I did not want to buy this guitar. I had to buy the guitar . It sounded so good that my wife paid for it..til I got home!
      Generally I am not so excited about imported stuff, but for a fist full of dollars I got this special guitar.
      I have Martin D15 and this is a great sounding satin finish versus the glossy finish of the chinese Guild. I like both guitars but the Martin is $400-500 more

        Comments about Guild GAD Series D-125 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        Old guy here, started guitar last summer when turned 56. Started with a Yamaha FG700S, which has been a great beginner instrument. Wanted to step up a little, read a lot, looked around at local stores, played a number of different guitars, and found I particularly like the sound of the mahogany guitars.

        This guitar arrived safe via UPS and tuned right up. It sounds nice, has a comfortable neck for my hands, is well built, all solid wood, and it is comfortable to hold. The Yamaha I have for example is wider across the lower bout, the Guild is narrower and thus a little easier to hold. I had actually looked at a number of OM and other smaller guitars, but the size of this Guild dreadnought works well for me. The only con is a minor one, the finish is more glossy or bright than I might like, but that's a minor thing, and I may even come to like it!

        I played a used Martin D15 mahogany several times at local independent store, and it was a fine guitar, no doubt, but used was 2X the cost. No way was it that much better than this Guild. I still have a kid to get thru college here, I can't go too nuts on the guitar purchases, lol. This instrument is a helluva deal, 5 stars for a solid guitar in this intermediate range.

            So I just received this the other day and can't stop playing. Such a nice rich sound, and the neck which is normally a big focus for me, feels great, made for a devoted guitar player. I kind of wish I could get the old sound even when it was new, but I guess they are still working on that one and the old ones from Rhode Island days are just too pricey.

                Perfect guitar. This may be my first guitar, but this is great for all guitarists whether new like me, or experienced. While I would have liked for it to be Acoustic-Electric, the only acoustic sound is stunning. I also appreciated that it came with a guitar case. In addition, the guitar stays in tune. I tuned it, then didn't play it for the next day, and when i pulled it out, it was still perfect. Get this guitar.

The case that comes with it is real plush quality. Overall I give this guitar/case a 10 + Well made by real experts. Just put new addario acoustic light strings on it, lightly tighten the tuners with a screw driver carefully and she's ready to go. Stays in tune.

                        Great guitar. You can't ask for more in the price range. Consistent, and appealing to look at.

                        They come with feeble strings but most guitars do these days. Once you put on some DR's, problem solved.

                        If you're looking for a bright sounding QUALITY guitar with rich tone, this is one.

                        Oh, and the case is quality too. I honestly can't find anything bad to say about it.

The fact that is also comes with a case was what really made me roll the dice and order it back in February of 2015. So, I've had it for a few months now.

                          I also ordered new bridge pins called "power pins" and installed them into the guitar's bridge as you can see in the attached pictures.

                          You can't compare the D-125 to a high end Martin, Taylor, Gibson etc. My HD28 has way more thump and complex tones, but the Guild D-125 really does have a beautiful and unique sound. It is it's own guitar. It sounds bright and rings out in a bell like chime yet also has some great low end growl.

                          It records really well and as a matter of fact I prefer the recorded sound of the D-125 over the Martin. I'm sure that would sound crazy to some people, but it really is just so easy to get some great recordings with it.

                          The playability is excellent although a bit different from what I was expecting. It took me a few days to get use to it. Every time I take it out of the case and feel that neck in my hands it still amazes me how fun it is to play and how sweet it sounds.

                          I didn't have any problems. The guitar came in perfect condition in it's awesome case. All the woods are beautiful to look at. Top, back, sides, neck and head stock with mother of pearl Guild inlay look really great. Much better in person than the pictures Musicians Friend has on their website.

                          If I buy another acoustic it'll probably be the Guild D-140. I think I'm going to stick with Guild for a while.

                            The sound, tone and sustain of this guitar is great . The build is also very good, nicely finished off. the thin neck and medium to low action is great-----
                            for a low end price it's a great buy and it's a keeper. She's a 5 star baby.

                                    I ordered this guitar for my 17 year old grandson who has been playing for about 5 years. He loves it. Only glitch was even though I provided the correct address( they had moved in the last year) it was routed to the old address, 2000 miles away! Luckily they were able to intercept and he got the guitar, but about a week late

                                      If I knew I could get a guitar of this quality for this price, I would have done it years ago. This guitar is quickly becoming one of my favorites. It plays as well as many electrics and the tone is outstanding. Even the case it comes with is high quality. I knew what I was expecting when I had my mind set on a Guild. They completely over-delivered on this one.

                                      This is a very good guitar. It is one of the best Guitars I have played and it is one of the least expensive guitars I have purchased. I bought mine two years ago and I had two Martin D-15 (all mahagony guitars)the Martins were purchased for the same price if not a little cheaper. I got great deals from GC in those days. But I must say these guitars are very comparable. THey do not sound the same and one is not "better" than the other but the quality is really comparable. The Martins in this price range do not compare with the Guild and it's all wood body. I am not biased against the Chinese built instruments and I must say this is one of the better built guitars from China. Finally I must write, There is no Epiphone comparable to this guitar.

                                      I read the other reveiws and was psyched to get this. However, regardless of the great reveiws, the two (2) I've received so far had to be returned due to quality, finish issues.

                                      The second one, just returned today was like the first 1)great sound 2)great intonation 3)good feel/setup, however since does not have a 2-way Truss Rod(?) or is broken I could not adjust the Back-bow. The Forward-bow was as far as it should be on any well set up guitar if one likes that much. However, when attempt to adjust the Backbow to flatten out the neck the Trussrod was loose, would have unscrewed or rattled not Pulling the Neck Back (a big tech job/fix), not good or permenant fix either on New guitar.

                                      The Third try is since - liking the Vol, Resonance, Sustain. It is Brite in Full Freq Range; it will loose some as loosens up. I just don't get how a guitar like this regardless of price/country goes out. Any neck can twist but to not have a two way truss in 21st Cent makes this risky w/3rd one too.

                                      And, misc., really silly Finish issues that just should not be.
