    I agree they are probably the best vintage dread for the $. Lots of love for my arch-back spruce top D-25M over here; she'll stand in there with a bluegrass banjo all night long.

    I finally invested $40 in a pawn shop HSC for my '71 D-25 flatback today. It has never had one in the seven years I have owned it.

    It sits next to me at work all day, leaning up against a bookshelf. Perfect recipe for a headstock break.

    I figured it deserved some protection. Wonderful, dry, warm guitar.
