Title: D03 vs D03 all mahogany
Post by: DaveyO on July 20, 2017, 07:11:41 PM
I love the look of all mahogany
Will a regular D03 project louder than an all mahogany
D03?

I don't know about "projection" or "louder," but it will emphasize different frequencies - more midrange frequencies - which might sound "louder" to your ears, or to the ears of those out in front of the guitar.  Only way to know is to play them side by side.

 I've had A D-03MT  and my old D-02, which is Sitka/mahogany. The Sitka over mahogany definitely projects more.
    The D-03MT is very sweet sounding, but the projection is subdued when compared to a Sitka top.
     
Hope that helps.

This is the answer I was looking for,
Thank you
