WOW!!!!!!!!

By Aussie5468

from Australia

I bought one of these last week - mainly as a long term investment. But whenever I get a quiet moment, it's out of the case & on my lap!!! Flamed koa looks three dimensional with its rich depth of grain, and you know why this is a top end guitar (with a top end price tag to match)when you strike your first note on this baby!! This is the "Rolls Royce" of acoustic guitars, I challenge anyone to name me a better one than the D-42K

I bought my D-42K about 2 years ago and am still totally infatuated with the sound and beauty of this work of art. It very rarely leaves my house and I never take it on stage. I leave the work to the HD-35 or the Taylor. The D-42K is my "dream" guitar and I'll have it until the day I die.

Best overall sound available

By Tom C

from Midwest

I've had my D42K for over a year and I still can't believe the sound it produces. I still don't take it to gigs but maybe I'll get over that fear someday. I've played and heard a lot of top end guitars but none beat this sound.
