Yes - played a D/PWM and own a D/'03, which has a different bracing pattern and a german top.

The D/PMW is a lot of guitar for the money.  It sounds a lot like its brother, the D/PW, but perhaps a little louder, slightly clearer, but slightly less overtone content.  I prefer the M to the D/PW, but would prefer the OM/PW to an OM/PWM...

But as far as my "higher end" D/'03 compared to the D/PWM?  Same level of materials, same perfect construction, just a different tone.  Mine is geared for more volume (which it has) and overtone content (thanks to the German top), but the D/PWM responds better to the light touch.  Both have incredibly high headroom - I cannot get the D/'03 to overdrive!  SCGC is among the handful "best" in the industry.

Let us know what you find!

I played one of those as well as the OM/PW. I like the sound with the x/brace close up to the soundhole, great old-timey and bluesy sound on each of those guitars. If I were a wealthy man I'd definately get one of those.
