I do not know what it is about this guitar. I just cannot get into it. It is a gorgeous instrument - one of the most cosmetically attractive guitars I've ever seen. It sounds great, too, and the craftsmanship is stunningly good. Taylor is a fantastic guitar company, and they don't make bad instruments at any price points. I guess it's just the way the neck feels in my hand - it just does not feel comfortable to me. The neck carve doesn't work for me, and that's a deal breaker, to me. It's as if this guitar was built for small hands. Still, I'm rating it very high because I know I don't have the same hands as everyone else.


Soundwise, this guitar is great. I love how there are so many choices of different models, and the only difference between most of them is pickup type and configuration! I tried the dual humbucker model, and it was a great, powerful sound, with plenty of articulation, cut, and smoothness. The guitar is incredibly versatile, running the gamut of rock, metal, country, blues, jazz, pop, reggae...you name it, and this guitar can do it.


I'd be in love with this guitar if they'd give it a different neck shape. Maybe Bob Taylor will read this review and try to contact me and ask to build me one with the neck of my dreams! I'm sure that's not going to happen, but if it did, I'd stand thoroughly behind this guitar. For now, I can't, as it just does not feel good to my hands, and that's absolutely the number one criteria for me as a guitarist.

I find the perfect round ... The width of the handle can be a handicap for some but not for me, having large fingers ... It is close to the acoustic of the brand. The only downside I find the frets are too high which makes the game very sensitive to finger pressure. No problem with access to the sharp heel of the neck is very small. The whole is very pleasant. It is fitted with Elixir strings 10-42 with a short Diapson, the bends are too easy.


There are easily a typed his rock, blues (ES335) to say to get Gibson or Fender sound. But this is not the intention. Taylor will builds microphones and electronics without trying to imitate anyone. This is a rather versatile guitar (PRS type or LAG Roxane) connected to a good multi effect or a tube amp, it provides, its ease of play, fast fun. I play with instead of blues and rock solos or the rhythm a little greasy. It easily crunch on the Fender Blues Junior sometimes too fast.


I use it for 2 years. I took advantage of an opportunity to buy, my dealer was trying to part with it. I was seduced by the comfort. The volume may be a bit too neutral, but rather versatile. Rapprot The money is excellent (a try to time) rather rare in France. I did not have a choice of finish is satin in Maple Pomela. If I had not had a good price, I would not be opted for the Custom model. it is nevertheless extremely good guitar

Taylor Solid Body Standard
Mahogany body
Saddle flame table for mine
Mahogany key bne
22 frets
Jumbo frets
Les Paul type tune
2 humbuckers
Slecteur 5 positions: 2 positions for the humbuckers alone, a position microphones in series split, split 1 position microphones in PARALLEL, 1 position + neck pickup bridge pickup splittbr /> 1 volume gnral
A tone that plays like a knob on the normal 3 / 4 of the race. In the last quarter, made a sound like wah wah blocks in middle position.
Aluminum easel, very soft to the touch (thank you palm mute), each string's bridge not depend from all others.
1 box comes with a magnificent
Extremely neat guitar work well RULES of very good, as always with Taylor.


Handle relatively fine and fast. Reduces the pitch increases rapidly compared my Fender.
The key is really beautiful ebony and slides alone.
Accs the treble, better than LP, an SG less lightly, but it's not even wrong.
Note that it comes with Elixir strings.
Extremely lgre.
The key is cons wider than other guitars (strings more spaces) which ncessite time to adapt.
The least that the frets are: very high, wide base and sharper at the top. The sounds are very specific on but it does not get used too much pressure with your fingers. We must play it softly, I do not now because I just have it. By dint of making slides exploss my fingers.


The pros:
The pickups have a nice big output level.
INTERESTED possibilities with DIFFERENT config microphones
The sustain is allucinant (chamber rsonnance + bridge + mahogany tip top)

The -: there will certainly raise but as I receive it later j'diterai


I rarely if ever seen a guitar as well finished. The pictures found on the net do not do justice to the beautiful Saddle flame.
The box is also provided with beautiful.
From afar looks like a wave of Les Paul copy but in fact there are little touches of innovation very intressant (knob of tone, bridge, ...).
It is also better with more lgre ACCS to treble.
The quality-price ratio is now really super intressant.
