“D25M Guild”

Written on: 06/06/2012 by DC5950 (1 review written)

I bought my Guild D25M in 1978 wth a tax return. Best thing I ever bought w/tax money, by far. I still own the Guitar and play it daily. I gig w/it and it always gets rave reviews. The sound has only gotten better w/age. Everyone who hears it asks "where did you find that guitar". I have made a few minor adjustments. I replaced the orginal tuning gears w/German made 12to1's. added a bone nut and saddle and a pickup for amplification. It still sounds like an acoustic guitar. I have had to have the truss rod adusted only twice since I've owned it once when I replaced the nut and saddle the other just before replacing them. The highs are crisp. The mids sustaining and the bottom end has to be heard to be beleived. Playing in Drop D will sind chills up your spine. I would not trade this guitar for love or money. I don't care how broke i get this guitar will always be mine. What a fantastic instrument. I feel priveliged to own it and play it. The man that said things only get better w/age must have owned a Guild D25M.

Guest's Response to DC5950's Review

Written on: 21/07/2012

I have had my D25M since the late 70's and paid about 300 for it then used. A guitar is a very personal thing and what sounds and plays good to one person can be totally different to another . I dont know if I have the guitar players disease of never being satisfied and always looking or that "perfect axe"....but I do not like my D25m. It only sounds good when new medium bright strings are on for a couple weeks, then the tone goes flat and dull and its hard to tune. Nothing worse than an out of tune guitar. And I've always found it hard to play. gotta dig deep. Not for me. Id like to sell it and will be putting it on Ebay soon. Its 35 years old.
