Ayers D-02 Review
Acoustic Guitar reviews a bright-sounding dreadnought made of unusual Vietnamese mahogany with all-wood binding. With video.
At a Glance
Dreadnought body size. Solid Sitka spruce top. Solid Vietnamese mahogany back, sides, and neck. East Indian rosewood bridge, fingerboard, and headstock overlay. Maple and padauk body binding. X-bracing. 111/16-inch nut width. 21/4-inch string spacing at the saddle. Gloss polyurethane body finish. Satin polyurethane finish on the neck. Chrome Gotoh tuners. D’Addario EXP-16 strings (.012–.053). Made in Vietnam.
This Is Cool:
Beautiful, unusual rosewood soundhole rosette. Sharp-looking padauk and maple binding.
Gloss finish is a little thick; sound may be too bright for some.
