The Greg Bennett Design Samick D6 is a dreadnought style acoustic guitar from the Windsor series. You can recognize at the first sight, that it’s absolutely a quality instrument. Thanks to the “D-shape” neck (which is made of mahogany), it’s one of the most easy-to-play acoustics I ever held in my hands. Unfortunately, it’s not in production anymore, so it’s hard to find one. On the other hand, the Samick D5 is very similar to it.
Maybe the most important part of an acoustic guitar is the top. On this guitar, the top is made of solid spruce, which insures the great projection, power, and tone of course. The back and sides are made of ovangkol, which is a beautifully textured wood from Africa, it’s got a balanced tone, with a bit more low-end response, than the mahogany. The fingerboard is made of rosewood.

The D6’s sound is very powerful! As I mentioned before, it’s got a bit more low-end, than average, which comes very handy, when you play solos on it. Chords sound very full-bodied, and rich, too.
The notes sustain very long, which is a sign of good wood choice, and pairing.
