First off, I’ve only had it for a short while but gotta say I’d take it over my 714 , southern jumbo and d35 , been picker for a good bit of my life and every once in a while a guitar just comes along and right from the start you love it others take time , for me it’s this guitar she has me wishing I was playing her 24/7 , a pure joy to play ,looks beautiful and very well balanced between highs, lows and mids and anyone that’s ever had the pleasure of playing a taylor already know how comfortable their necks are , shes the sweetest sounding guitar I’ve ever played ,but buyer beware ,if your a little heavy handed and really like to dig in with your strumming hand she won’t like it .. but as far as a guitarist with a softer strumming style or for finger picking , you’ll search the world over and never find its equal , kudos to TAYLOR for sure , and thanx to zZounds for their payment plans and stock of quality items, because if not, with me being a father to 5 lovely children every piece of music equipment I own would just be in fantasy
