I'll be curious to see what you find that you like. If you find something to your liking, please let us know.
My Seagull M6 has similar woods as a D28, and is a boom box. I like the tone and it is easy to sing with, but it is far from a D28.
Thanks very much. I'll be sure to let everyone know what I find. If I don't find something that sounds better than my Korean Sigma, I certainly won't spend the extra money to get it. I hope to make a trip soon to play some guitars in person.
