D-140 Cherry Burst

The D-140 models from Guild are performance-driven dreadnoughts with all the playability, tone, and vibe that have made Guild a go-to name for discerning players for over 70 years. The D-140 Cherry Burst adds a new color option to the ever-popular D-40 and D-140 lineup, pairing a classic Cherry Burst finish that contrasts beautifully with Ivoroid binding and Mother-of-Pearl inlays in the rosette and headstock. Premium specs like all solid tonewoods, bone nut/saddle, and Guild’s Premium quilted gig bag with microfleece interior make the D-140 a professional level instrument packed with incredible value.

This full-bodied and powerful dreadnought provides guitarists with a classic acoustic sound and balanced voicing from its all-solid tonewoods. Solid Sitka spruce for the top and solid African Mahogany for the back and sides are a prime combination, scalloped bracing and rosewood fingerboard and bridge give this instrument a punch and tonality that define the Guild sound.

Additional premium features include Guild Vintage 18 open gear tuners with 18:1 gear ratio, Ivoroid binding, and a bone nut/saddle. A mother-of-pearl rosette and Guild’s iconic Chesterfield headstock emblem reminiscent of 1960s models complete the package. Ships with a Guild Premium Acoustic Gig Bag.
