This is the guitar that i have boiled it down to. For me, nothing feels like it and nothing plays like it and i will have one, thank you very much.
Good call! I finally got one a few weeks ago and it's a great guitar.

Agreed on this. I had a crush on the D-18 as soon as they refreshed it in 2012 and played at least a baker's dozen of them over the years. It's a consistently wonderful guitar -- there wasn't one of those D-18s I didn't want to take home.
