In early 2006, I bought a new Tacoma-built D-55. DTAR wasn't around yet, so I had Gryphon (Palo Alto, CA) install a Fishman Matrix pup in it.<br /> <br /> For an amp I selected the Fender Acoustasonic Jr DSP. While it has a bunch of effects built in, I prefer using my footpedals because it's faster to stomp on a box than to spin dials.<br /> <br /> Anyway, this D-55 has been my main gigging axe for over 5 yrs now and I've played the hell out of it. I'm here to tell you that I just LOVE IT TO DEATH! Can't imagine any guitar I'd rather gig with than this D-55!<br /> <br /> A BIG WELL DONE to those folks in Tacoma who built this stellar instrument! Can't thank you enough.<br /> <br /> 6

I am glad to see that American craftmanship still survives. I still enjoy my F50 and F212XL from the 70's. I am sure they will outlive me and bring much enjoyment to hopefully my son.
