I purchased the 322e from Sweetwater. I've owned three Taylors over the years, including a 916ce. But I fell in love with the sound and sustain of a mahogany guitar, and the tone on this baby is just great. It has become my preferred go-to instrument. Prior to purchase I had also considered the 522e because of the bling, and I even looked at the worksheet on a Build-To-Order. But I'm really happy with this. Actually, the silky non-gloss finish is way more appealing that I thought it would be. And the guitar came right out of the box with easy action. At this price range, I couldn't do better. Finally, I must pour praise on Sweetwater. From the website to the personal service, they are tops!
