2004 Guild GAD-40C with Fishman AG Series Pickup

Description

Guild’s GAD line offers a real quality guitar, for a very reasonable cost and, remarkably, all solid woods.  The few GAD’s we’ve had were all top-notch in quality, tone, and playability and this one is no exception.  What immediately grabbed me was the remarkable projection this guitar has and it’s one of the loudest acoustics I have in stock.  If you need a good stage guitar, we’ve got you covered.  This one has a new Fishman AG 94 passive saddle transducer and endpin jack installed.  The GAD-40C has a dreadnought body size with a solid spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, mahogany neck, classic pearl fretboard inlays, 12″ radius, 1 11/16″ nut, scalloped bracing, high-gloss poly finish, Grover tuners, dovetail neck joint, abalone side dots, mother of pearl logo and chesterfield emblem, clear pickguard, and attractive maple binding with white/black strip on either side of the binding.  Cosmetically there are a few dings in the top, but no cracks anywhere on the guitar, so consider it more of a player than a pristine collectable.  List price on this model was $1399, selling heavily discounted for $799 – over $900 with a Fishman installed.  If you don’t mind a few non-problematic finish flaws, this is an excellent buy in a solid-wood acoustic at just $499.  Original case is in well used condition and missing part of two latches but is still serviceable.
