It has seen the light of many shows and proudly bears the markings of its journey - Repaired center seam crack, as well as one repaired crack on the top in the lower bout. Light finish checking on the body and the finish has been worn through on portions of the binding. A well loved guitar.

Description

In 1977, Guild made a D55NT that was much like any other. It was well made, durable, and ready for years of playing. But unlike many of its brethren, this one was destined to end up in the hands of an incredible artist and performer. This guitar belonged to the one and only David Wilcox, a local Ashevillian and a supreme songwriter. In his hands, this guitar shone, but eventually the two parted ways and now the Guild has made its way back to our shop in the course of its search for a new home. Recently set up and in fine playing shape, you'll be hard pressed to find a guitar with a better story to it than this one. The classic pairing of Indian Rosewood and Sitka Spruce will have you singing right along with it. It would make the perfect stage guitar or even collector piece, depending on what you are looking to accomplish. Come check it out and see what you think!

Boy am I glad to see this one back here at the shop! This is a guitar that has seen years on the road, playing beautiful music the whole time. I'm happy to be able to make it available to our clientele once more.
 
I remember this guitar that David Wilcox once owned. It has a nice even tone and it has really been played in. This guitar must have inspired quite a few of David's earlier songs. A real classic, for sure.
