    ............ Guess that sets up a kind of “what one guitar would you want on a desert island“ kind of question.
    A fun idea for a new thread?

    So, given that I can’t be evacuate with a car full of guitars leaving no room for the wife, food, and other essentials, I have to choose one guitar to take with me if I have to run.

    Sounds like a "Sophie's Choice" kinda decision...

    I have two hands that could easily carry two guitar cases. My gig bag has backpack shoulder straps. So the real question is,”which THREE guitars would you take with you?”.

    Did u figure out the dead D string issue? I thought of one other thing to check. If there is a problem with the nut slot like maybe not deep enough (i.e. not enough angle or 'break' over the zero fret) that could be a problem especially for the open string but if it does it everywhere that might be a different issue.

    Thanks for asking. I’ll check that out when I get home. Is that something a file could fix? I might take it to my local luthier/guitar tech if its daunting.

    The sound kind of produces it self up and down the neck, but as I played more and after a little bit of truss rod adjustment to bring the bring the action down ever so slightly, it’s less obvious to me. Still, I should get an expert’s opinion.

    humph, yeah I'd have a luthier look at the nut. Don't do it urself.

    Jazza, yup it's a 'condition' ... :-) I'd have to count them to know exactly how many I have and I'm building 3 more at least. I need to sell some.

    • 12 bicycles between my son and I (road racing, triathon, mountain, folding, dutch-style city bike, touring etc.)
    • fewer guitars than you, but who knows about the future?
    I am indeed inflicted. Call the doctor!

    @Bones - Indeed. Problem is I don't want to be without the guitar!

    I think the Maccaferri design usually balances out string to string (but a little different from maker to maker of course) unless you've got a nut (string guide), O fret, or bridge problem. It looks like you have a great big break angle over the 0 fret in the first pic, but my eyes aren't that great. Check that and the slot in the bridge.
    Unlikely but conceivable you bought a unlucky set of D strings with busted windings or whatever wrong with all of them? Try replacing the D with any suitable acoustic D string, just to see what happens.

    The amber top, sides, and back on your axe are remarkably uniform - subtle and classy. No doubt the f holes set it apart too.
    Bet you'll be practicing more than ever.
