The Model D is a similar size to my Model S guitar but with a wide waist that gives the sound a wonderful warmth. If you’re a fingerstyle player then go for the D-SS with its clarity and power. If you’re a player who uses a pick, the Model D-SKAdv is for you.

I bought a Model D-SS from Nigel some years ago. I'd scoured the guitar shops and played guitars by other well known makers but decided Nigel's guitar suited me best with a mellow sound and easily enough volume for a Session.
