I expected EAN10C for Glen Hansard not P3DC even if it is a discontinued model.

Glen's EAN10, "Horse" has been retired and he has been playing the very similar P3D models since.

@Tom W. Thanks!!! That article really cleared it up for me.  My “tone” is aggressive strumming... I sing loud, so I play loud. I also tune down a full step, and use heavy strings,  so the “compressed” sound of cedar would be accentuated with my setup. Gotta be spruce...

Thanks again!

Hello! I have a CP4DC-OV. Want to get a non - cutaway. Can I get some feedback on the cedar top, vs. the spruce top on my P4. 谢谢!(Hello! I have a CP4DC-OV. Want to get a non - cutaway. Can I get some feedback on the cedar top, vs. the spruce top on my P4. 谢谢!(thanks )

Cedar is a softer wood that gets louder quicker than spruce, but ultimately is not as loud as spruce. Here is a piece on this: https://www.esptakamine.com/articles/2009343-the-right-top-for-your-tone
