    My first Guild was a c. 1974 D-40, bought new.
    I sold it in 1977 to help pay for my current D-55.

    That D-40 was a superb guitar.
    I wish I could have kept mine. :chargrined:

    A year ago I'd have answered a 1977 D-55 with IRW B&S, like the one I bought new and have played daily for 41 years.
