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.
Still doing business but not taking any online orders.

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!
