This is by far the "BEST" Semi-Hollow for the money with "Quality" and Playability. I am absolutely happy with this guitar. AJ Becerra once again makes things all good! His knowledge and guidance has helped me make this guitar a part of my collection! This is the 4th Taylor for me (110 Dreadnought, 312ce, 914ce, and now the T-3/B) and I am a total Taylor guitar geek!! I own several Gibson's and American Fender's and the Taylors are my go to guitar. If you want a Semi-Hollow and don't want to spend $ for a Gibson 335, this is the guitar for you! Quality, beauty, and playability own this guitar by Taylor!
