Vintage 1972 Guild D-25 Flat Top Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Natural w/ Original Hard Case

Here's a vintage, flat top dreadnought Guild D25 acoustic guitar from 1972 straight from our luthier. While Guild still makes quality acoustic guitars to this day, there is no doubt the vintage aesthetic of this one complements the warm, full-bodied tone when you play this one.

This guitar comes the original hard case and comes with the all-mahogany body in great condition. Our luthier installed a bridge doctor to help smooth out the flat top and this axe is ready to rip.

 All of our instruments sold are in complete, working condition. This instrument was professionally inspected, repaired if necessary & given a pro set-up by one of our favorite luthiers/guitarist/composer/teacher & fantastic all around human being as well as the co-founder of April Mae & The Junebugs, Dave "Catfish" Fecca of Dave Fecca Guitar Repair located in Moorestown, NJ...so this axe is ready to rip!

CONDITION:
 Instrument is in very good overall condition, in our opinion. Our luthier gave this a full pro set-up, including polishing the fretboard and oiling the tuners. He installed a bridge doctor as well to help fix a spot on the top which was bellying.

Cosmetically,the guitar has a small amount of seam separation on the back of the instrument and some wear where it looks the finish may have faded due to an adhesive of some kind. While the guitar has some wear and small dings on the body of the instrument, they do not affect the playability of the instrument and the one is still great. Please see the attached photos.

Body is 42" long x 15 3/4" wide x 4" deep; scale length is 24 1/2" long x 1 3/4" wide at the 1st fret, 2" wide at the 12th fret, & 2 1/8" wide at the 17th fret.
Nut measures 1 and 11/16" wide.

Guitar weighs in at a very light 4lbs, 7 oz.

**SPECIAL NOTE: It is with a very heavy heart that we wish to share the news of the recent passing on
Dec 6, 2020, of our almost 12 year old red & white beagle, our beloved Ace. He was our mascot and namesake of this shop on Reverb.com. He gave us the initial inspiration to sign up with Reverb.com, primarily due to the name that we chose to use on this fantastic website. He was also the chief of security & official greeter for our bricks & mortar shop, always ready to engage with the customers; tail wagging, always happy & forever on the lookout for any ingestible treats that our customers wished to share with him as well as a nice butt or belly rub.
Ace is, and will continue to be, very sorely missed by all who knew him. Our shop will never be the same without his presence. But, his intense spirit and joie de vivre lives on, through our loving memories of him and also via this wonderful platform online. Love the heck out of ya, Acie!!

Sadly, Ellis
