My first nice guitar was a Red all-mahogany Guild D-25 Dreadnought that I bought at a record store in Glendale, Arizona in 1975. I paid $425 for it. I still have it and it is the best-sounding guitar I own!
In2014, Guild was acquired by Cordoba Music Group from Fender Musical Instruments Corporation. The legendary Ren Ferguson signed on as VP of Manufacturing and R&Dand production of USA-made Guilds returned to California, where it remains to this day.
