Simply the best sounding guitar on the planet - period! Plugged or unplugged, clean or distorted. What's also amazing is that it sounds even better than a Guild jumbo ( if that were possible, ) even though it's a thin body less than 2 inches deep. Not to mention that its utterly beautiful.
Truly amazing! I have played many, many guitars ( including just about every model in the Taylor line, ) and this is the best sounding instrument I have heard in 20 years of playing. Audience response is remarkable. I get so many comments on the tone and resonance of the guitar - kind of a rare thing from the public.
This is a hybrid guitar which actually does what it claims to do. Every pickup selection is another world of tone. It is just excellent as an acoustic, and will handle rock, jazz, and country with as much credibility as a solid body. This is an all mahogany hollow body model with unparalleled tone.
Ease of Use
A thin body which is so light that it always fools you. No shoulder pain here. Very easy action. This one is a gloss neck which gives ease of movement.
All Taylor guitars are so well made. The electronics on this guitar are just incomparable. How in the world did the wizards at Taylor get such tone out of such a thin guitar?
Worth every penny !
Taylor always takes care of their products. This is such an excellent company. Gives "Made in America" a very good name.
The Wow Factor
When I first heard this guitar the sound stopped me in my tracks. It was like, EUREKA, I have finally found the sound I have been looking for for years. Add the beauty of the instrument and it knocks your socks off ( and the audience! )
I've been playing guitar for 20 years. I am also a vocalist. I am semi-professional.
My setlist includes mostly 60's soul and pop, 70's r&b, and country.
