It is a beauty and the acoustic sound is impressively good.  Hey, good playing too.  Obviously, you've been playing a good long while.   

A nice bonus with a fretted GDG guitar and useable string height like you have is that you can also tune it ADF# for an open D.   Then you can slide it and or have easy two fingered chords for the G and A chords.  G would be fretting 11 and 32.     A would be fretting 11 and 22.   One finger Bm (and boogie note) at 31.
