    Hey Wood, glad to hear you have it now and that you're enjoying it. It's found a great home. Probably wouldn't hurt to get her in for a thorough inspection and set-up. You got such a great deal on it may as well spend a few bucks to get it in optimal playing shape.

    Yes Grass, I got a place I could take it to and will. Check it over and lower saddle a bit would do it for a while. I like how big it sounds vs the Br.

    Sustain rod? I am going with that explanation Ray!

    Sounds just like an early 70s D 35 should. Very even across the strings. It's a guitar you can take anywhere worry free. That's what I love from an old battle scarred guitar, and what a deal. Keep it hydrated and out of that desert sun.
