Dao is a cheap alternative to Mahogany. Kind of like the agethis of the acoustics. There is nothing "wrong" with the material, it just doesn't look interesting. It sound just fine and a solid Dao guitar will probably sound better, and cost less than a laminated mahogany guitar.

I have a friend who has a Fender made of Dao wood. Now, I don't really like Fender acoustics, but I can't deny that it sounds good, and looks beautiful!

I have a Fender CD220CE all natural dao guitar.

1) lounder than most guitars
2) pure tone quality with warm deep bass
3) most beautiful guitar i have ever seen

i hope i never have to replace it because it is essentially my dream guitar, and i bought it from guitar center for $700.
