  • Musical history was made in August 1969 when a spirited young folk musician took the stage on the opening day of the Woodstock Festival and mesmerized the audience with his soulful voice and intense, rhythmically driving guitar style. He was none other than the great Richie Havens (1941-2013).

    For that electrifying performance and throughout a career spanning more than 45 years, Havens relied on the balanced and powerful sound of the Guild D-40. In tribute to the man and his artistry, Guild’s Richie Havens signature D-40 model features a solid Sitka spruce top with a tighter radius and red spruce bracing, solid mahogany back and sides, Havens’ favorite double-pickguard design and his signature on the truss rod cover. Other premium features include rosewood fingerboard and bone nut, slim neck heel, rosewood bridge with bone saddle and pins, dual-action truss rod, ebony headcap with mother-of-pearl logo, Gotoh® SE700 open-back tuners, and Fishman® Matrix™ Infinity pickup system. Available in Natural (821) and Black (806).
