Martin guys 1st Taylor
By: Dave from PA
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Made in the USA the DN3 is a high quality acoustic guitar.
Your general opinion of this product.
I was surprised at the DN3'3 wide range of tone. My Martins have a narrow tone range,deep bass,modest high end good thump for bluegrass(D28). The Taylor DN3 has a nice bass no wimp there just not a D28.The mid tones and high end just soar however a beautiful range. Very well made and the case is good quality. The only reason for the 4 stars on the price is Taylor dealers will go 20% lower than AMS which offers only M.A.P. pricing.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I can get a nice deep sound from the low end and mellow it out and get a nice bright snappy sound from the high end. You can really cover a wide range with the DN#.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Beautiful gloss top and satin back and sides.
