Not what I was hoping for...

I'll begin by saying I am a big fan of Jason Mraz's music and part of his sound that I really like is his nylon string guitar, which this model has been replicated on, with some embellishments. My first impression upon receiving this instrument appearance wise was that - this is a gorgeous guitar. The finish work is really well done. However, upon playing it I quickly discovered some flaws, which surprised me. The acoustic tone overall was just average, without much projection. To my further disappointment I found that the setup was substandard. I experienced buzzing on the D string from the 5th thru 9th frets and on the A string in the same area but in a narrower range. I took the guitar to my local luthier and he determined that there was a raised area where the fretboard meets the body, which was the cause of the buzzing. There is a truss rod adjustment which could have taken this out but the nut was already at the end of it's throw, so no adjustment was possible. I was not all that impressed either by the amplified sound of this guitar. It has an undersaddle piezo pickup which does duckishly quack enough to notice, it sounds ok, but definitely not great. For the type of pickup though, it might sound good with a Fishman Aura, but for nearly 3 grand, it should not require that kind of processing. I ended up exchanging the first guitar for another to see if I could have possibly gotten a dud but the second one was the same in every respect. To Sweetwater's credit, my rep Anthony Longano, was very helpful throughout this process and my original purchase amount was refunded to me without issue upon sending the second guitar back. I did call Taylor support to relay my experience, but did not get the impression that I was being taken seriously. Who knows, maybe they have adjusted their production process to give more attention to proper setup before these guitars leave the factory, so your mileage may vary. Sweetwater's return policy makes buying decisions easier for cases such as these.
