Guild's D-140CE Dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar gives you lots of projection and great tone. The D-140CE is adorned with high-end features such as bone nut and saddle material, a vintage-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and Guild's iconic "Chesterfield" headstock emblem. The solid Sitka Spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides combine to give the instrument a beautiful tone, with a strong midrange and just the right amount of sparkle. And the D-140CE is outfitted with a Fishman Sonitone pickup system for natural plugged-in tone.

The Guild D-140CE is a high-quality acoustic-electric guitar and carries the features to prove it. Along with the all solid-wood construction for exceptional tone, you get the unmistakable look of Guild's vintage-correct tortoise pickguard and well-known "Chesterfield" headstock inlay. The real bone nut and saddle provides ultimate tonal transfer from the strings to the guitar's soundboard. No expense was spared in the materials of Guild's D-140CE acoustic-electric.

Dreadnought body style is great for projection and versatility

Dreadnought bodied acoustic guitars like this Guild D-140CE acoustic-electric are wonderful for guitarists needing power from their guitar. The larger size offers a rich and full sound that works well for both punching through a mix and accompanying the human voice. Dreadnought acoustic guitars are some of the most popular and desirable acoustics out there for their clear and robust sound. And Sweetwater is proud to offer the D-140CE for your performance needs.

Discreet Fishman Sonitone pickup system

Fishman and Guild are two of the most respected names in the acoustic guitar industry. It was Guild's quest for quality that drove them to chose Fishman's Sonitone pickup system for their D-140CE. The Sonitone system offers the rich acoustic tone of your D-140CE through any amplifier or PA. And the design of the Sonitone system is discreet. The controls are accessed via the sound hole, so you won't have to deal with the hassles that side-mounted preamps can sometimes cause in other guitars.

Just rings, holds it's own against anything.

I bought a D-120ce first, and I really liked that I could sing with it without being blown out by the mids. It's all mahogany, and a great guitar, also. But then I played one of these, and had to admit, maybe an all-mahogany guitar wasn't my dream guitar after all. Guilds have an amazingly warm, full tone. They are built like tanks, the heaviest guitars I've ever played. You don't have to worry about too heavy of a gauge strings, or strumming too hard on a Guild. They're built to handle it. I'm not crazy about the battery being where you have to loosen the strings to get to it to change it, but as long as you put in a new one between string changes, that should never be a problem (except the initial installation). On the other hand, having the volume and tone controls right inside of the top of the sound hole is handy. This is a guitar that you'll never have to feel insecure about, on any stage. I mean, it's an all-wood Guild, for chrissakes!! I grew up in the sixties, and Guilds were really admired as cutting-edge instruments back then. The arched-back guitars they made back then, and the first cutaways, everybody wanted one! Sounds about as close to a Martin D-18 as you can get, without spending another $1700. And comes with a great lightweight hard case.

Beautiful but flawed

Very nice looking guitar whose sound has improved with age. I bought it as a practice guitar to set up with as light action as possible for when my arthritis would act up and my Martin was a little much. My hands have done better than expected so for the most part it has hung on the wall and not been used much. Other than minor cosmetic issues along the sides of the fret board, all in all a very nice guitar for the price I paid when it was on sale. Sadly, over time this beautiful guitar has developed an issue with what appears to be the glue on the bracing leaching through the beautiful Sitka Spruce top. I've had it just over a year and over the past few months the top has developed dark crisscross lines that coincide with the bracing underneath. Never seen anything like it and not sure if that is an indication that they used the wrong glue or whether the glue will fail in time. I was thinking of selling it since I don't really use it, but doubt that I will be able to get much for it in this condition.
