Playability and Feel
Nice Guitar but MADE IN MEXICO
Your general opinion of this product.
This is a really nice guitar. However, I was unaware it was made in Mexico and doesn't really feel like a USA made instrument, which I feel should have been noted at this price point.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The quality seems to be ok. It's laminated and I believe it's all wood, but the back and sides kind of feel like MDF or something. A hard case would have been nice but the included gig bag is less like a traditional bag and more like a sturdy semi-soft case.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Plays very nice. The 3rd string doesn't stay in tune very well, but I'm going to change the strings and see if that helps. The most important thing to note here is that if you're looking for a classical guitar you may be disappointed with this. The neck is more like a Taylor steel string model, but it is slightly wider and flatter. This is very nice for someone like me whose classical guitar experience was limited to a few tunes out of Bill Leavit's Classical Studies when I was at Berklee but who needs a nylon string for recording.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The guitar sounds very nice. Again, not traditional but very nice. There is an onboard electronics system that I have not fully explored but it seems nice.
How was the action out of the box?
The setup was nice. It just needed to be tuned.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Top looks great. Back and sides look a little cheap. I know Taylor guitars are a bolt on neck and the binding around the neck joint could have been a little tighter and there is a little ding on the back even though it's brand new. Nothing serious though.
How has it stood up over time?
Seems to be well made but time will tell.
