I acquired this wonderful guitar August 14, 2004.

Given the serial number of the instrument (No. 950907110), the site of Taylor to suggest that this guitar was filed September 7, 1995 and it is the 10th guitar output of the EL CAJON shop that day ...

In addition, it is one of the guitars that have benefitted from the UV curing technology established in February 1995.

The table is sitka spruce. The back and sides are flamed maple beautiful.

The varnish is very thin, giving the guitar a beautiful aspect honey.

The mechanics are of course "oil bath" and the 612C has, like its congeners, the barage Taylor scalloped, finely sanded.

The neck is mahogany, the fingerboard and the bridge of ebony also shine with the beauty of wood. Mother of pearl inlays are carefully this set of very high class. Instead, look! ( http://monsite.wanadoo.fr/taylor612c/ )

The violin of my instrument has no impact, not even a trace of microscopic scratches on the back of the instrument, or to believe that the owner did not play or he was extremely careful!

UTILIZATION

From the handling, comfort of the handle amazing game. The coasts of it had to be chosen from a "main standard" universal as it is enjoyable. Perfect can we even say, very fine, almost like electricity, but an ideal investment for the hand regardless of the style considered. The frets are finished very well, fairly flat, it's a real treat, especially since cutting and heel promote access to high frequencies.

The size of his body Grand Concert size, offers a comfort and a perfect grip of the instrument. We do not resent any gene in the playing and surprisingly for its size, it projects very well.

I ride D'Addario EJ16 strings on it. They immediately sound very "natural", but highlighted and without the necessity of working hours for "doing". They are free of metallic coloration and allow me to make the most of the violin without altering the heat of the instrument.

SOUNDS

Playing the first arpeggios, have been hit by a very soft overall tone, marked by a great balance between the frequencies. Serious gentle, too, does not absolutely drool, mids are well defined, very harmonically rich and sweeping the entire spectrum that is expected. Even fighting on the side of acute but not at all aggressive and bright present.

This guitar is perfectly correct, it means that the twisted little agreement on the ninth plated box does not ring true, a miracle. You feel at ease in all registers, finger-picking, solo, flat-picking, rhythm with a pick, bends, blues, arpeggios, etc ... The guitar responds with an immediate and accurate approximation. A must!

OVERALL OPINION

Of course we can reasonably ask whether we should not be crazy to spend so much money on an acoustic guitar. For my part, I think a high end guitar is much cheaper than a piano and seen through time we will go with the fun and you get out, the investment is justified and pays for itself fully.

The violin, the sound cathédralesque, the quality of petrol and its sound quality justify its price professional ...

His only fault: She spins the bell every time I put it back in its box custom :-( but fills me with happiness when I reopen the case and see it appear under my eyes, ready to be petted ...

In conclusion, it's just acoustic guitar in my life ... There is not one day when I did not play a real love story that can not be denied!
