Nicest sounding and playing guitar I've ever played!
By: M. Hodges from Richmond, VA USA
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The craftsmanship is outstanding. I feel this guitar will stand up to many, many years of all kinds of playing - at home, on stage, on the road, etc.
How has it stood up over time?
It has stood up exceptionally in the short time I have had it.
Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar is one of the nicest feeling, playing guitars I have ever played. I tried out all types of Taylors and Martins and I kept coming back to this one.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It feels just right. I have played predominantly electric guitars for a number of years - but this guitar feels as close to an electric as I would want it to and still has a confident acoustic feel.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The guitar sounds silky and gorgeous. Not as bright as some other Taylors (814ce, etc.) but bright enough while still being sort of mellow at the same time - great for fingerpicking as well as hard strumming.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish looks great, flawless, very rich.
How was the action out of the box?
Action was fantastic - would not want to change it one bit.
