Overall Rating:
As stated previously, i tried several high end taylors and other reputedly GREAT guitars like guild, martin, larravee, mossman, etc and this one was the one as soon as i touched it. its my second Tak and i would definitely research others next time i'm shopping for an ax but i simply cannot say enough good about this machine! everyone who plays it compliments it and it com,pliments them
Model Year: 2000
Price: $1100.00 (new)
Where Obtained: ralph's house of tone, dover, NH
Features:
Made in japan,solid cedar, maple neck, full fretted, 6 string, volume, 3 channel EQ and tuner built in single bridge pickup, texas jumbo single cutaway, split bridge to compensate the intonation, natch'l finish, non locking tuners
Playability:
Action is preset at PERFECT.... neck is a little narrow for my meathook hands but i love the thinness of it. i tried Taylor's, Larravees, Guild's and martin's before i purchased...nicest playing ax in a 50 mile area dollar for dollar. flaws? only self inflicted ones.... repaired well.
Sound Quality:
I play it through a Behringer Acoustamax with a hundred effects built in. usually use a little reverb. i play folk, jazz and contemporary original music. best suited for acoustic/electric play. wouldnt use it as a ROCK guitar. sweetest sounding ax i ever owned. plays equally well unplugged or plugged in...... cant say enough good about it
Durability:
I mostly play live..... detune when not in use to relieve the tension. had the truss rod adjusted once in 3 years. hardware seems to be holding up well. had to adjust for climate changes after moving from maine to florida. now, it LOVES the humidity.....
