my first acoustic electric i was in the market for. I knew i couldnt spend to much without having to sleep on the couch so i shopped and shopped once i played this one i found myself always coming back to it at every shop i went to. So after about 2 months of shopping i just said screw it and havent looked back since. Its a great guitar acoustic as well as plugged in. I play mostly Folk/rock stuff.
Great Sounds unplugged as well as plugged in.
no tuner but the sounds is amazing!!!
Ease of Use
The neck is smooth and the perfect size. Very comfortable.
Obviously at this price it cant all be great woods, so the only reason i mark it down here is cause of the laminate sides and back.
you cant beat this deal for the sound you will get. Trust me i played everything in this price range. Nothing came close
Manufacturer Support
Excellent customer service. I actually bought mine from a taylor Rep who came to a local shop.
The Wow Factor
Just look at the thing and tell me its not one of the best looking acoustic electrics youve seen.
