I find great round, fine and soft. Accustomed to nylon and electric guitars, I was looking for a folk guitar that is really easy to play and it is fun!
The sound is good even without the play (If so, I assure you, listen here). For access to acute, you can always go tease the 17th case of acute middle but it is not its core business!
It is a model of small size (about the size of a classical guitar) with this characteristic, oh despair, I thought form available from Martin. (Super Martin but out of "my" price).
So the size is perfect for barouder.
Note that I've never played any other guitar of this brand.
I do everything with, even if it is perfect for folks songs "Inside Llewyn Davis". It is very typical.
I do not know if this is the Sitka spruce top but its resonance is truly intoxicating, just take it, to caress, to tap the bridge to hear (yes, I insist on it and not, I do not do drugs / over). It's really crazy.
I've played a different Taylor and "expensive" guitars in stores but I never heard that. Maybe in Martin?
The best is with the capo. Already in the second box, you feel a change in behavior, it becomes clearer and more vibrant and play Leonard Cohen with the capo on the 5th is my most touching guitar experience.
Yes I am a fan.
For its size, I find that in terms of volume, it holds very well his place among the dreadnoughts.
I've had about 8 months, I was looking for this shape but do not want to give my salary to Martin, so it was a revelation.
The quality / price is very good for me, again I think sitka is excellent on this guitar.
I have nothing against him, I would not have imagined such a pleasure to buy! I did not even want to put a microphone (but hey, I'll try p't'être one day )
One last point, I do not know where that came from but as its sound, its smell is also very typical, amazing.
