My Taylor 810 with Rosewood back and sides and Engelman Spruce top was purchased for about $1,800 from Jim's Music in Irvine, CA.
This is the 5th of five guitars I have purchased and you might say I worked my way "up" to Taylor. I never thought of paying this much for a guitar. The action is low and smooth with no buzzing. The 810 holds medium stings that give it a very easy playing feel. The tone is marvelous anywhere behind the frets. It is much easier to play than the light string counterparts from others that are not built strongly enough to take the tension of medium strings
This guitar is heavy. When you hold it you will realize they use a lot more wood! This is only a negative if you play standing up for long periods. It is worth the weight, however.
I have never seen a better built guitar and I have examined all of the alternatives that cost up to 2-3 times as much. The computerized manufacturing process used by Taylor turns out consistently well built built guitars.
I like it so well I have just ordered a 510 with mahogany back and sides and a cedar top for playing "blues". These two guitars will satisfy any type of music I want to paly.
Acoustic guitar made in USA.
Lutherie only renames.
Precious woods. Perfect finish.
A work of art.
In chorus, given the jouabilit it sounds very easily.
Consistent full ben ... it's full. His extremenent rich.
I use it for 6 years.
Perfect instrument with no default.
I also had a Takamine. See anything. Yet the Japanese are rpute. Taylor is at the top.
Unfortunately the quality is paid very much.
For lovers of sound and a beautiful violin.
