Dao is a wood that will give brighter clearer tones and less volume, the guitar should not be a loud guitar but an articulate one
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

but
It was my 1st tym knowing it used on Guitar...

but you should be able to compensate for the quietness by micing it or putting a pickup in it right?

Dao might be quieter than mahogany to the player but it projects better so to the listener it seems louder.
Not taking any online orders.

Most dao on guitars comes from china nowadays. Just something different. I haven't seen it on many high end guitars but it definitely can look interesting.
