Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Guild D-55 Rosewood Dreadnought! Simply put, this one of the best acoustic guitars available on the market today. The superb playability combines with exceptional tonewoods and craftsmanship to deliver an exquisite masterpiece that players from all backgrounds can collectively drool over. The neck has a robust full feel to it and plays extremely comfortably in every position. The flawless fretwork makes single note playing a dream come true. It is easy to quickly dial in your tone and it does a wonderful job of showcasing the excellent tone of this guitar instead of showcasing the sound of the pickup. This is a top shelf dreadnought fit for the advancing player or consummate professional.
