The action was too high on every guitar. The price also was ridiculous, given that i would need to put it in the shop immediately and spend another 1–200 bucks to make the guitar playable to my standard… and I’m not that hard to please. I couldn’t find any used D-28s anywhere. Weird, yeah, I know. But that was the case at that time. None were on the used market. This is before the Internet became a market place for guitars. Otherwise I would have been grazing online, too. So, I found a shop that was in the basement of a building in a nondescript neighbourhood of the very big city I was living in at the time (and which I am purposely not saying either). And it was definitely a music town, too.

It played better, sounded as good, and didn’t need a setup at all. That said, I always take my guitars to my tech and have the intonation redone properly (new bridge). I am finicky about intonation. Ten years later I began playing some Martins and Gibsons in a store. Both companies had vastly improved their offerings in that ten years between 1995 and 2005. And Taylor is responsible for Martin and Gibson getting their acts together and making their guitars worth the money we’re asked to buy them for (though both are a bit over priced these days – my opinion). Taylor was producing consistently higher quality guitars for LESS money. They were using CnC in their manufacturing process, something Gibson and Martin were slow to adopt. And they paid for it.
