It is simply idiotic that any instrument with an adjustable truss rod should come without a wrench. You'll have to order one from Taylor, at additional cost plus postage of course, or use a deep well socket if you've got one of an appropriate size in your tool box.
While on the subject of truss rods; the holes for the truss rod cover mounting screws are drilled in the wrong places. The result is that the upper screw goes into nothing but air! The screw is actually going down into the recess for the rod adjustment wrench and doesn't screw into any wood. I suppose I'll have to send it back to Taylor after I've exhausted any other repair options. To think that I'll be sending a guitar in this price range back because they can't locate the holes for the truss rod cover mounting screws correctly is insane.
There is an area on the back of the neck that has serious finish issues. I don't know if it was over buffed or what but parts seem to be raw wood with filler and stain but no finish.
For a Rosewood guitar there is a marked lack of acoustic bass response and little treble. The tone is flat, no sparkle, nothing above average.
The electric sound however is very good indeed. Straight into a mixing board this system works well. Amplified the Expression system is simple to use and very versatile.
