Thread: D-55 Dilemma

  1. #61
    Guitar Center is usually very friendly regarding returns and guitar condition issues. I only buy used, always try to get a descent price (I am school teacher), but after I get a guitar, I don't mind at all spending some money on it. In my opinion, yes, the D-55 is the best guitar ever made for under $5000. Because tone/sound is #1 to all of us, I would keep it, but I would call Guitar Center and say "hey, this guitar is not as described, the binding is coming loose and.......... and I want to either return it or have you compensate me with $300" (or what you think is fair).

    Then accept their offer, if they offer zero, then still keep the guitar and pay to have someone fix it up. Or I might give you $100 more than what you paid GC, plus tax and shipping.....

    Thanks for the advice guys. I did return it - but it is now back for sale at the Pittsburgh GC - listed at $1899. My final price was $1805, so maybe you can get it for that. It is a wonderful guitar with just a little TLC needed; I just decided I wanted a little better condition at that price.

    ... Iíll find the right one for me; or at least have fun looking!

    I'm really not in the market... but now I'm curious. I might drive by the GC there and give it a test drive. Wonder how long it will last? Guilds seem to move pretty quick when they are out where they can be played.

    Please do go play it and post a review here. Let me know your thoughts. I'd love an honest objective review from a guild expert (or at least someone who knows a ton more than me)

    No affiliation - this D55 has been for sale for several months, seller is asking $2100, but
    might consider $1900 - won't know unless you ask

    That is a nice one. I may reach out. Buying on Craigslist from this many states away makes me nervous, but I may reach out. Thanks for the referral.

    Wow, that is a beauty! Gorgeous burst! And in "like new" condition. I'm not even in the market and I'm interested.

    I’m no expert. I know the D40s sound really well. Best I can do is tell you how it compares to that... and I’m expecting it (D55) to have a much stronger voice. Still, I’m interested now. I’ll try to check it out.
