I have a Washburn D10. I bought it on Craigs List for a rediculous price http://members.cox.net/ppitt1/D10two.jpg
and it goes where no guitar has gone before (in a Road Runner gig bag). It is a really nice acoustic guitar and plays very well. Ser# G01020341 .. which I assume is laminate sides and back and a spruce top. I put a Tusq saddle on it and it plays EVERYTHING! (country, blues, jazz .. andything I can read)
So: I see all kinds of letter suffixes (D10S, D10I, D10-this, D10-that) .. now that has meaning if it is cutaway or a built in electronics; otherwise what do these letter designations tell about the plain vanilla D10?
I have a no-laminate Tacoma DM10 which I also like a lot. http://thestringshoppe.com/used/Tacoma%20DM-10/01.JPG
But honestly the two sound very close (same size drednaught). I cannot hear a difference but my friends say the Tacoma is a little bit louder and mellower while the D10 is crisper (and I think the Tusq saddle did that -- it doubled the sound output)($10 upgrade plus elbow grease).
So I just call it a D10 (no letter suffix). Can anyone explain the letters?
