9-Series Dreadnought. The DM9 is probably the most basic of Tacoma’s line and just your basic spruce and mahogany dreadnought – but the tone and playability are anything but basic. It’s a wonderful sounding D-size, with remarkable bass response and not as mid-range heavy as many mahogany models, and the satin finish contributes to a very lively sound with good sustain. Again, all solid woods here with a solid Sitka spruce top; solid mahogany sides and back; plus one-piece mahogany neck; rosewood fretboard and bridge; chrome tuners; wide 1.75″ nut width; 25.5″ scale; 4-color herringbone rosette; tortoise shell top binding; abalone dot fretboard markers. This one hasn’t been a case queen and has some honest playing wear, plus one repaired center seam crack (shown here), which has been professionally glued and cleated so it poses absolutely no future problems at all and has not affected the tone. Also, the clear pickguard has been removed. This is a nice playing, excellent sounding flattop for just $549. Includes TKL hardshell case and original paperwork. Made in Tacoma, Wash., USA.
