I got this from a local shop here in Carlsbad by trading in an electric I no longer played. The d-28CW is a bit different from the standard d-28 I tried. The neck is a bit narrower and seems more designed for strumming, the soft v-back is thick compared to my Taylor, and feels great (but it's softer v than on standard d-28). Also the string spread is narrower, it feels like a gibson electic would. The lareger sound hole really does bring out the mids. I love this guitar - it is insanley beautiful, feels and sounds just fantastic. Is it worth the price? hmmmm don't know about that. I will say for loud strumming and rythme work I couldn't find a better guitar and I tied A LOT of them, and I had a nice budget to work with. The d-28cw truley is one fine guitar and one I'll have it for 30+ years before I pass it on to my yet-to-be-born kids.. Really a nice piece of art and musical equipment all in one.
