What’s different about these new Standard Series models compared to old D-40/D-50 models?

Over the last 60+ years, Guild has produced several variations of D-40 and D-50 models. (Bluegrass Jubilee, Bluegrass Special, Richie Havens, among others.)

These latest iterations reflect the best attributes of legacy D-40 and D-50 models while adding modern refinements in design, playability, and construction.

Celebrating Guild’s 70th anniversary, the new standard series heralds the greatest attributes of Guild’s history and rings in a new era of USA production.
