Mahogany top, back, sides and neck with an Indian rosewood fingerboard and the whole guitar finished in a natural gloss which brings out the darker timber colours and highlights the classic Guild logo on the headstock. A dreadnought acoustic that doesn’t feel overly big or heavy and would suit even smaller players (and beginners) thanks to its slim neck. More about that soon.
WHAT’S THE SKINNY?
The D 125-CE has a seriously easy neck to get around. With a standard-ish nut width (1.7”) it’s the slender C pro_ le that really lets you wrap your mitts around it. Chords, Finger picking, licks, _ at picking and open string runs are all fair game and players of any level will appreciate the overall slinky feel of this lovely Guild. It’s dread styled body opens up the bottom end for a clear and balanced tone great for the chord playing singer songwriter but there’s also some sizzle in their if you need to get a bit more percussive. For electronics Guild have gone with the Fishman Sonitone under saddle pickup.
It’s interesting to see their current lineup of instruments running from $1000-ish to super fancy big $$$ guitars – definitely competitive with other big name brands.
