I really love my F47R, such a great sounding and playing (and looking) guitar! Love the body style, the great dread-like projection, volume and rosewood 'thump', and the body style is comfortable enough for couch playing. I've been looking for a maple-bodied guitar for a while and the D30 was high on my list, but then this beauty F47M came up on Reverb and the price was so good I had to act. It has all of the above qualities with a nice amount of maple clarity, a surprising amount of bass and a 'snap' that the rosewood doesn't have. So far I love it!!! I really love the burst and how nice the flame maple shines through. I also realized that I have 4 acoustics and they all have Adirondack-spruce tops...not that I think they are any better than Sitka, etc, but I do love the way they sound! I'm usually not one for having two very similar guitars, but these are different enough in sound that I'm loving it...and they feel almost identical.
