I first played a Guild guitar when I was in college back in 1967. It was the best sounding acoustic of all the brands that I tried. But, back then I needed money for college so I bought a cheaper Yamaha guitar. I finally found a used D-25 in 2003 that I bought for $545. As soon as I played the first few chords I knew that this was the guitar that I had always wanted to have. I use Martin 10's and it sounds great. I like the full, bass sound that I get on whatever style I play.
This guitar was made in 1987 in Westerly and it as a few nicks and scratches but it still polishes up good and the cherry burst finish looks great. It as Grover tuners and it stays in tune.
I would recomment the D-25 to anyone who wants what I call a "throaty" sound and not a tinny sounding guitar.
