Hi

I just bought this one at a local shop, the price wa about 800$. There were 2 Model D´s at the store and they were alot different. The Spruce top was much nicer on the one I got, and the nut on the other one was way to high. The action on the guitar was way to high for me, so I filed quite a little bit off the Graphite bridge to lower it. Now it plays nice and sounds great.

I´m not used to playing nylons and very wide necks, but it will come in time. I love playing Classical Gas on it. smile.gif

I use Diaddario Pro Arte J46 Hard tension, but I´m thinking of changing to J45 Normal tension for better playabillity. What do you classical players use stringe wise? Also there are not many pictures of classical guitars on the site, please show them. smile.gif

Well it looks great, but let's hear you play Classical Gas on it, since you like to play that. A video would be nice as well smile.gif

Classical Gas will be recorded!!!!!! I can play it well on the steel string, but it takes some time to get used to the nylon strings, a totally different feeling.

I just bought an interface so i can record accoustic properly. But my guitar is now at the luthiers workshop for inspection and minor changes. smile.gif

Looks awesome! Can you record anything (some little piece or even easy fragment, if you want) and put in this thread for show use what sound the guitar has? Thank you!
