"Great Quality - Unbelievable Sound"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
I see myself having this guitar for a long time. I plan on recording with it, as well as gigging with it. This guitar might be the keystone in my arsenal.
Sound
The sound of this guitar is flat out amazing. I mean it doesnt necessarily compare to a Martin D-40 or a Taylor 900 series guitar, but it doesnt have too. Those guitars are 3k a piece and this one barely breaks 600 and comes close to both of those sounds. Just slap some elixers on this thing and youll be amazed of the sounds that come out of this guitar.
Features
The features are all there. The Onboard EQ is very useful and the gold tuners hold it in tune and make a nice appealing touch.
Ease of Use
I bought this guitar based on the sound.. however when i bought it the action was so unbelievably high that i could slip my index finger inbetween the strings and the fretboard. AFTER i adjusted this.. the guitar plays like a dream. Moving up and down the neck has never been easier.
Quality
VERY WELL MADE GUITAR. The spruce top and Ovangkol back and sides are top of the line woods that really let your guitar sing. Unlike alot of Taylor guitars, this guitar feels very strong and i believe it will last me a long time.
Value
Sticker price is 900 dollars, the retail price is 630. After i traded my old acoustic in.. it only cost me 250 dollars. THATS A GREAT VALUE!
