Spent a lot of time with the CW since I got it Tuesday night. I took it to my tech and had him look over it. He couldn't find a thing wrong with it. The amp tech at his shop is a guy I've been in bands with for 10 years now. He's seen me buy and trade maybe 20 guitars in that time and he thought this was the best one I've bought yet. I'm having trouble putting it down. It came to me with Phospher Bronze strings that seemed a little too bright. I replaced them with 80/20 D'addarios. I've said it before and ended up selling, but I think this may be a keeper.

I made some brief recordings. I have a really light touch and I'm using a Wegen pick that I believe seems to tack some attack away so these aren't accurate representations of the guitar being played hard. But it give an idea.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Another reaction I'm having after spending more time with the D-28, and this could all be psychlogical, but the bound fretboard without any inlays feels fast. Almost as if I'm holding an electric guitar neck rather than an acoustic.

I recently had a setup done to mine and it plays amazing as far as the action goes. The fretboard on the original is supposed to be a Gretsch replacement and I can imagine mine playing not much different than a Gretsch electric. Great guitar...love mine...congrats again...

It sounds great!!!

That's THE Clarence White sound, to me.

Question, though-it has what seems to be an enlarged sound hole and a longer-than-usual neck...can you get a luthier to fix that?
