Hard shell case is not included. I strongly recommend that you find a hard case online and let us purchase and ship the guitar to you in the case. We will offer to purchase any hard case of your choosing. Cost is up to you. We will require payment for the case as part of your payment to PayPal. Guitar measurements: Lower Bout 16", Upper Bout 11 1/2", Body Length 20",Body Depth 5", Total Length 41". Gig bags and foam cases are not acceptable.
We do not pay for shipping insurance. In our experience, it is extremely unlikely that you or we will receive any insurance payment if the guitar is damaged during shipping. For this reason, we pack very well and ship via FedEx. They have an excellent no damage record.
The guitar has a two year structural warranty. See warranty statement below. Ever wish you could own a vintage Guild D-40 dreadnought but could not afford it? This is your chance. This appears to be a USA made mid-70’s guitar. Nice playing and sounding players D-40. The back is surprisingly clean, as are the sides all around. The entire guitar has the usual age related wear, but no play wear. There is plenty of evidence of repair work on both sides of the fret board extension. Structural repairs (i.e. under the top) are very complete, comprehensive and of professional quality. Cosmetic considerations were not especially attended to because of the nature of the damage. So, yes it looks pretty bad in places. Action is 4/64 inch at the 12th fret. That is right at 1/16 inch. Set up and sounds good with light gauge strings. Neck and fret board are in excellent condition. We refinished the neck back, and cleanup up the fret board. Intonation is good. This is a players guitar, not a collector’s instrument. It plays nice all the way up the neck.

Rest of guitar is all original. This is not one of our well known rebuilds, but is just a repair.
This guitar had severe upper bout damage. The finger board extension was pushed into the top and the top was cracked through. The original additional neck block glued to the neck block and under the top was removed, top realigned, and a new full width under top cross brace was added. The OEM Guild neck block extension which was glued onto the neck block under the top served no useful purpose anyway, so removal is no big deal. Bridge is original and was never removed, though there are scratches nearby which are probably due to sloppy string changing habits of a previous owner. There are some binding repairs on the top, upper bout. That is the way we received the guitar. These are stable, but not top notch work.
