«  Big disappointment »

Published on 09/26/12 at 13:04
I do not come back on the characteristics that have dj t cit but dwell on the realization.

Wood slectionns are good quality and the mcaniques prcises and stable. Cepandant Specifications manufacturing parat me strange. First observation: the guitar is heavy, which is for my rdibitoire hand on a massive quality acoustics. Either the wood are not dry enough or the thickness setting of the wooden box is insufficient, or internal dam is standard. Obviously there is a bit of everything ...
SECOND observation: the finish is far from being exemplary. Certainly the satin varnish of the body is pleasant and well applied but the rest left to be desired. Cash nets jointent not all correctly and those of the button, the hoop is very average and saddles are ... Plastic !!! The handle is not rgl and very poorly prepares guitar (adjustment of saddles, finishing frets ...)

USE

The handle is comfortable with a flat profile and a width at nut average. I find cepandant wear the sleeves to the profile c or v the radius pronounced fawn Martin more enjoyable and less tiring. But this is very subjective (pratiqus styles, hand size ...).
The cutaway -trs nice indeed and gives the mouth the guitare- access to the high notes is very good.
The Gnrale ergonomics is particulire binds to the weight of the guitar, it's pretty unpleasant.

SONORITS

The guitar is archi-rigid: the wooden box is very thick, internal dam is a real structure and it is likely that the drying was not performed correctly t. Consquent by the soundboard is a big board that offers no flexibility. The sound is balanced but unbearable aggressiveness. The varnish adds more to the rear got clean plastic polyester. This is equivalent of Takamine midrange.
The expression system is particularly ...! An imbalance between the standard filetes strings and those that are not (irrcuprable with qualiser), a patch near a micro rosette 30 euros. The Takamine did much better!

NOTICE GLOBAL

A guitar that's definitely not worth the price, all levels.
We are very very far, from the Enlightenment years, Taylor of 80 and 90 years, is the label that you pay here, not the product.
Taylor is trying to destroy everything that made its prestige, rolls of electro acoustic.
Martin, Adamas, Collings Santz Cruz, Lakewood and our luthiers are very very much better prices.
