“Power, Punch, Clarity, and Playability”: Acoustic Guitar’s Guild D-40 Review


Acoustic Guitar Magazine‘s Greg Cahill starts off his review on a strong note: “Seldom have I connected with an instrument on such a visceral level as when I first picked up this D-40.”

The review goes on to explain how the D-40 was revered by the folk scene of the 60s and 70s, what with its history with Richie Havens and Woodstock. This all-solid, USA-made spruce/mahogany dreadnought is also perfect for both powerful strumming and fingerstyle playing: “The new D-40 boasts a full-bodied, robust tone. While it packs a punch, and produces the volume bluegrass and rock players covet, the D-40 also has a sweet, clear, resonant voice that is well-suited to folk music.”
