Default Can you tell a D-18 from a D-28?

Without seeing it? WITH 5 hints?

I figured it out! The lows and highs gave it away, even on a laptop speaker.

I liked those capoed chord progressions, and the clear note separation sounded like a great mahogany guitar from the beginning.
Fun idea .

More iconic?
Well…it’s subjective but perhaps a J45.
Get both.

I was leaning toward D18 before the last hint but the last one sealed it for me.

Thanks, Cliff - all of these tunes are originals of mine and after writing them in 1997 (& 1999) they've finally been put to good use.

I'm more interested in how it was recorded. What mics,how many and it's/their placement.

I have 1 Rode condenser aimed at the 14th fret and a Rode Shotgun mic farther away, aimed at the bridge... panned hard L & R.

Maury, sounds just like the D-18E Retro you sold me a few years ago.
