This is a great guitar. For 400 dollars, I haven't seen anything better. It plays and sounds great. Everyone will look at it and say "wow" and I just plain like it. I have a lot of guitars and have a played a lot of guitars and I would recommend this one to you. Is it a 3000$ Martin 00, no. Does it say "Taylor" on it, no. So what. I like guitars that play well and don't mean I have to take out a 30 year loan to pay for it. It's pretty enough that it would hard to take on the road unless I had a lot of padding but basically, you can't go wrong at this price. I have bought several guitars from Sweetwater and they both arrived almost in tune and well set up. I took this out of the box and played it for about an hour before I stopped and plugged it in to see what the electronics sounded like. Very nice. Also has a built in tuner. Sorry though, I got the prettiest one already.
