What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

Thanks, in part, to Yamaha's Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E) torrefaction process and the classic combination of Sitka & mahogany, this D-18 style dread is balanced with tons of projection. A strummer's delight; the perfect companion for a singer/songwriter!
