Hi Very new to this forum, came across by looking up these two guitars. Possibly wanting one or the other the D-40 is showing signs of it having possible finger board repairs, (Glue squeeze out that was not cleaned up at or about the 3rd fret) and the frets have been mowed down and not re-crowned. I like the cutaway and have played one of these before and love it, Priced around 600. however I have the opportunity to purchase locally a DV-6 NT he says mid 90's (have not went to look at it yet) I have not found much information on the DV-6, by the looks it wasn't made for a very long period of time, was it built in westerly before Fender? also priced at 600. I can re-fret the D-40 and level the fingerboard, I have someone GOOD that is a close friend of mine and can do it very cost effectively for me, so I guess my question is which one is the best value. or if given the chance take both?
