Probably a 1985 model. I have one, it's my beater but it does sound good....

Welcome to the forum.  Here is a bit of info for you.

D15
- dreadnought style, select spruce top, unknown back/sides, mfg. late 1970s-early 1980s.
Grading 100% Excellent Average
N/A $100 - 150 $50 - 75

The phrase "select spruce" is a euphemism for laminated spruce.  The D15 was a all laminate construction.  Probably, lam mahogany back and sides.  In good shape it's a $100 guitar.  Pike is probably right 1985 build date, even though the blue book says construction ended in the "early 80's".  Could also be 1978.
