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. In addition to playing the guitar at home and with friends I've played the guitar at approximately 50 gigs in 2018, 25 in 2019 and a dozen or so in 2021. This is definitely a "forever" guitar.
