The VS version is a modified version of the popular D-18 dreadnaught. Body construction is gloss mahogany back and sides with a choice Sitka spruce top. However the D-18-VS version has a slightly slope shoulder body shape and is fitted with a 12 fret neck, slightly wider 1-3/4 nutwidth and beautiful slotted headstock. This vintage series guitar has aged toner and other special appointments such as the tortoise shell design body binding and the Waverly vintage open gear tuners. Sonically this guitar is a cannon. One of the most powerful guitars I have ever owned. But the sound is quite well defined and clear, not boomy. The wide neck is perfect for finger style playing and the mahogany body produces a wonderfully warm and woody tone.
