Initial Quality Review

This special order guitar arrived in 15 days. I have been waiting quite a while for this instrument to reappear. I played one years ago and figured that they would be available. No such luck until now. This version has position markers which I had wanted on the original. Sweetwater set this up to my taste. Nice job Sweetwater. It was perfect and slightly out of tune but for a nylon that's pretty good. It came with bullet proof packing and in a great Taylor Case. I play a Taylor 814c steel string and wanted a nylon string that was close to it. I wanted a nylon with Cedar Top and Mahogany for the added midrange. This guitar produces a great sound on the bass strings, especially for a guitar right out of the box. The treble set can be coaxed into producing what I want but I will be scouting out string sets to pick the best match for my style and the guitar. If you are on the fence on this I wouldn't wait and hope it is still around.
