My main purpose of this post is to ask what I would gain with a D-18 over a GPC mode?. I like my cutaway. I also don't think that I coud live without an onboard tuner. I'm not crazy about the fretboard on the GPCPA (richlite) compared to a D-18 though. Tonewise, I have demoed 000 models and although I know mine isn't exactly in this ballpark, I think it holds it's own in it's own way. Ever since I strummed a D-18, I fully understand the overall difference though.
So, is it a no brainer, slap the money down, buy the D-18? Or should I stay with what I have? Or save my pennies until I can actually afford it? I appreciate any thoughts.
