condition: good

I have a 1976 D55 for sale. $2000. Prestige 330 Pickup. Super nice and highly sought after Vintage Westerly RI model. Let me start by saying that this guitar is one of the loudest Dreadnought Guitars I have played in 20+ years, and if you look at my feedback you will see all the Jumbos and Brazilian Rosewood Guitars that I have sold just on Reverb alone. This guitar is simply amazing as far as gorgeous, deep, properly balanced, and intonated tone is concerned. That said, it does have some cosmetic flaws. The most notable is at the nut where it was replaced some time ago before I owned it. I have photographed it well, and will be more than happy to provide more pictures, info, or whatever you need to feel good about this purchase. There is a slight line in the bridge, but it is just in the very top surface, and not an issue. There are finish checks, scratches, delamination, and all that blemish related stuff present. I have looked the guitar over inside and out with an alternate light source and do not see any cracks in the guitar's tone wood. The guitar's action is set at a very respectable 2.5mm and 2.0mm when measured at the 12th fret, and you can see how much saddle remains so the neck angle is good. There is moderate fret wear but I played all 120 notes without a buzz, and they were all very much in tune. The original case shows wear, but all clasps remain and function properly. It has a JJB Prestige 330 Plus with Volume Control installed by me personally, and I am an Authorized Retailer of these awesome pickups. To summarize this guitar is not a museum piece, and it does have cosmetic flaws. However, it will eat a J200, HD28, HD35 or any other of the "huge" sounding dreadnoughts. Please study the pictures carefully and check my feedback. I am not trying to mislead any potential buyer, I simply am offering a truly great guitar made in the Guild Westerly, RI plant. I am here if you need any more information. Priced to reflect cosmetic flaws...NO RETURNS
