Summary: The D-35, introduced in 1968, was Guild's midline Dreadnought flat top in the late '60's. It has the same woods and features (mahogany body and neck with a spruce top) as the earlier D-40. Trusted since 1953, Guild is a historic guitar manufacturer that continues its long-standing reputation of iconic acoustic guitars. From the New York jazz scene in the 1950s, to Richie Havens’ legendary performance at Woodstock, to Seattle’s Kim Thayil of Soundgarden, Guild’s guitars have helped create some of the greatest music in history. With a tradition built on old world craftsmanship, quality, and value, Guild guitars, and especially this one, have and will always be “Made to be Played”.
