I love this guitar! I ordered it and my sales rep called and said it was back ordered, but somehow it came to my house within 3 days! When i first started playing it I was blown away. It has a great almost twangy tone if you play hard enough. This is my first performance level acoustic guitar and I've already used it for a bar gig and it was outstanding. I am very satisfied with this guitar and do not see myself upgrading to a more expensive acoustic anytime soon. Taylor really delivers! The only thing is that the craftsmanship isn't perfect as there are some quality issues especially around where the neck connects to the body, and the electronics are on the bright side. However, you can easily dial off the highs.
