Thought I'd give you guys a shot at this first! I'm selling a 1981 Guild D-35 guitar. It was purchased brand new by my mother 30 years ago, and is gloriously beat up! Made in Westerly, Rhode Island, USA.

It's dinged, dented, scratched, and broken-in: perfect if you want a reliable player! The headstock and one side have both been cracked and then repaired professionally. The bridge also has a few small cracks running through it, but it's been like that for years without any issues. The bridge cracks wouldn't be a difficult or expensive repair if you do decide to have it fixed.

Pictures!

Headstock from the front...

And the back. It looks frightening, I know. But it's held up for twenty years.

What to expect in terms of battle scars.

You can see the cracks running through the bridge.

Yeah, it's beat.



I'm asking $450 including shipping to the continental US. Price is negotiable! Keep in mind that Guild is making a lot of its guitars in China now, and a comparable new model would be $650-700. Want a new US-made one? Expect to pay $2000! D:

I have slightly different Guild that's a few years older (78) and anyone who's ever played it has freaked out about its sound & playability. That said, I've played a few from this era and many were just ok. It seems that Guild had some ringers go out the door and if you can get your hands on one you're a lucky picker.

Haole, would you say this is one those?
