Last year I got a 15 year old Taiwanese DR-41 solid top in very good condition. Paid $280 with a HSC. I can't afford a D35!
I carved and installed a bone saddle, installed some notched ebony bridge pins and mounted a gold colored strap button on the neck heel to match the gold Grover tuners. Strung it with Martin light gauge (except for a .046 and .056 bass). I adjusted the tension rod and the nut some, too.
It sings like whatever you think of when you hear a really nice guitar singing. Holds its tuning very well.
I aint no professional musician but I been pickin an grinnin going on 40 year now so I know what I like. It's a keeper.
PS - Glad to see Mr. Webb is still posting.
