    I just looked in the specs on the Guild webpage! Also Oxnard might use different parts compared what Kim knew from NH.

    Oh yes! It says: "solid African mahogany back and sides" but the question is which kind of African mahogany. I guess some kind of Khaya (Khaya anthotheca, K. grandifoliola, K. ivorensis, K. senegalensis).

    1000% agree! If they offered this on a D-55, I'd bite immediately!

    Ask Sweetwater! Maybe they can order a D-55 like you want! Seems like they have enough buying power to request custom things. On the other hand it would be interesting to test this D-40TDL against a new D-55 ! I probably would prefer the D-40TDL sound. Who knows.

    I would have thought, for a special order, they would use actual mahogany.

    Honduran hog would be nice, but then it would be a $3k guitar. A blinged up hog/spruce guitar has a market, I believe. Love the look and the inlay.
