I Purchased this guitar in 2005. The guitar is in excellent condition, plays well, intonation is great and so is the sound. This is a replica of a 1934 D-28 (1st year of the D-28). I have used this guitar for the past 15 years and alternated playing with my 1934 D-28. The playing between the two is the same and the sound is great. I've played this guitar at approximately 50 gigs in 2018 and 25 in 2019.
