    My '72 D28 didn't look that cool or I might have kept it. It turns out, since selling that one and buying a '73 D35 I'm a big fan of Mahogany Dreads, they got "bark".

    Trading back and forth between the D35 and a '54 D18 at a jam, I'm happy with either guitar. If I switch to a Rosewood dread, I lose presence right where I don't want to, for my style of playing.

    This was it here, I was always kind of nervous playing out, like you do when you have a really nice guitar.

    Sweet. My good friend has a 71 d18. Been in his closet for 35 years. The binding is off in some places, the pick guard fell off. The bridge is lifted and it needs a neck reset not to mention the top is split. Itís worthless. Yours is a nice one, Iím sure youíll enjoy it
