    Just wonderful

    I could tell you the whole story of how I came to choose this guitar over the one that seemed so impressive from another company that I went with it first. But after finding factory flaws on the other guitar and playing one of these in a local shop I had a "what was I thinking?" moment. This guitar sounds unbelievably good. It's ebony fretboard and the classic way the dots are inset both on the fretboard and sides makes it easy on the eyes as well as fast for the hand to find the positions. I look at it--it's cutaway, electronics, and its sound both plugged and unplugged as the one acoustic guitar to have that does everything if $1K is your budget. Even the "bag" is not a "bag"--it's a semi hard, molded case that can be called a "bag" but actually it's so much better than any gig bag that's come with any other guitar I've owned.

    This is my third acoustic, second acoustic-electric. Once I laid my hands on this Taylor, I sold my Breedlove and bought this. Taylor has always had the brightest sound, which was the sound I was looking for. The action is so smooth...minimal to no fret buzz...stays in tune for a LONG time...and the Taylor Expressions pickup is amazing. I've played through the system at my church, and have gotten many compliments on the sound. Even for a low-end Taylor, you can't go wrong. I'm blessed to have this instrument, and you would be too.

    Taylor 210CE... a real VALUE at under $1000

    I rate its sound as 5/5 and the one I played today was set up well, but could take just a little more nut slot attention. Neck is not smooth, but grained if you call that a weakness. Good top. I owned a well played 414CE and the 210CE I played today is different but not a lesser sound. Stong bass, very good sustain, balanced tone and not 'trebly' (thin) as s ome cheaper Taylors are. Rather loud but with a real voice.... perfect songwriter guitar and acoustically remarkable for under $1000. I have owned a lot of guitars from $250 up through $2500 from all the major makers and Taylors are nice and a good value if you get a good one. Most good sounding ones are about $1200 or more. The 210CE is an exception.

    Decent, but expected better

    I have been playing guitar for over 20 years, just to get that out of the way. I have played many guitars and owned even more, but never a Taylor. So I decided to pick this one up as an entry level into the Taylor brand, and I must say after everything Ive heard about Taylor, I just don't see it in this guitar. After receiving the guitar I had to take it to a local luthier because there was an insane amount of fret Buzz. 120$ later (He had to reset the bridge, fix the nut and re-bolt the headstock, as well as fix 3 of the tuning knobs) the guitar no longer had buzz. But this guitar doesn't sound like 1000$ My martin DX1k (599$) Sounds better than this. Not saying this guitar sounds bad, it sounds better than most sub 600$ guitars, but I believe the 999$ price tag is a bloated price based solely on the Taylor name and not the quality of the guitar. The on-board electronics were also unstable and I had to have the wiring readjusted (The wire's were longer than necessary so when played they would rattle inside the guitar) When directly plugged into an amp or Audio interface it sounds cheap, It requires allot of fine tuning to get it to not sound plastic.

    Overall I give this guitar a 3/5

    If the price were 600-750$ then I would say 4/5 but for a 999$ price tag you can get allot more bang for you buck with martin or breedlove.

    This is my opinion, and only based on my experience.
