What is your overall opinion of this product?
Overall this is one cool acoustic electric. The build quality is super nice. The sound is really nice, louder than I expected, beautiful balance and clarity, and when plugged into a good amp (Fishman LB Performer)it sounds really good, with very controllable feedback elimination even without a sound hole cover. Plus the plugged in tone is great and can be moved thru it's wide tonal spectrum with the three discrete control buttons to produce a beautiful range of sound from mellow to bright.
I had already purchased the Taylor 150e 12 string with the Expression upgraded preamp/pickup sensor system. I wanted to get its sister so I purchased this guitar. It has the same composition of woods but is a cutaway version. I dig the satin finish and the beautiful laminated sapele.
Both of these guitars sound better thru my amp than my "L" series Yamaha, which is an awesome guitar. It is an LJX6CA and has a great preamp/pickup sensor system, but I have to use the sound hole cover.
