    Taylor T3

    Got the best price anywhere in the country. Fast delivery, free shipping. Now the T3 plays and sounds amazing. Having a hard time putting it down to get my honey dues done but that is ok with me. Thank you to Sweetwater for this amazing Guitar. I also have got a T5 from Sweetwater a few years ago in fact it was 2010 but that one is the same plays great and sounds great everyone loves it that plays it. Haven't let anyone touch the T3 yet but maybe someday. again that's guys.

    Very Nice Indeed!!!

    I received my t3b last week and have spend a few hours getting used to the feel and sound. 1st off I love the craftsmanship, really is a wonderfully made instrument. The sound options are quite versatile with both humbucker and single coil sounds from the coil tap option. She handles overdrive and modulation well. The only negative I give the guitar is a bit of high end feedback when using higher gain pedals. . . note that this guitar isn't really for that but for experiments sake a bit of tone adjusting was required using a big muff. I use a stereo amp set up (fender vintage tweed and Fender Pro Tube Twin) and the combo with this guitar sounds amazing. Well pleased. . .

    Amazing!

    Pros- Quality built. Quality materials. Comfortable to play. It rests nicely, well balanced on my shoulder. The stock p'ups seem to have a wide dynamic range that is pretty balanced...somewhat hifi sounding.
    The Bigsby has that surf-rock tone of the 60's! And on this guitar, stays in tune much better than other guitars I've played fitted with a Bigsby.

    Cons- None really.

    Comments- I don't believe that a Bigsby-loaded, semi-hollow is for everyone. but if you're looking at 335's or a Gretsch the T3 is worth the time. I would also look into Taylor's version of the PAF style p'up as an option. I've fitted mine with those and it made all the difference.
    IMO, the 'vintage' pups are what I'm used to hearing. So, it keeps my rig familiar to me...if that makes sense.
    With the original pups I found myself fiddling with tone knobs and futzing levels...continually searching for a comfortable vibe that I just couldn't quite reach. Until I tried Taylor's vintage pups.

    I like My T3/B

    I just received my Taylor T3/B that I ordered from Sweetwater and it is nothing but thumbs up! First of all I purchased it after the "price drop" and the price was fantastic for this guitar. Second the guitar was well built and is beautiful to look at - plus I love the snap of the ebony fretboard. Thirdly, this guitar can go from light jazzy riffs, to twangy country tones right through to crunchy rock rythyms and leads. What is so very versatile is the fact that you can split the humbucker pick-ups with the push pull volume/tone knobs. Quality, fit and finish are top notch and the set up/action was fairly good. For the price this purchase was a no brainer.

    Taylor T3

    Bought my T3 about 9 months ago. This is my first electric guitar, previously only owned acoustic electric guitars. It is a great looking guitar and excellent craftsmenship.

    Out of the box I was getting a lot of fret buzz and the G & D string going out of tune. Ended up changing from light gage string to medium gage, adjusting the truss rod and raising the bridge. I installed a zero glide nut and used Big Bends nut sauce which took care of th going out of tune issue. The zero nut really does brighten up open chords.

    The action ended up being higher than I would have preferred but I did get use to it.

    Great sounding and plenty of set up options with the switches and knobs.

    Overall very happy with my purchase.

    Not worth what I paid, IMO

    I've had a T3B for several months. I bought it based on my Taylor acoustic, an all around incredible quality musical instrument. This T3B is a beautiful piece. Beauty like a work of art. It has nice sounding and varied tones. It's a mite on the heavy side but it's comfortable and balanced. Those are the pluses.

    But there are some negatives. My biggest gripe is the instrument is constantly going out of tune. With active playing I have to tune it up then down, up then down, maybe four or five times in an hour. (I check it with two different electronic tuners). The Bigsby whammy bar also knocks the guitar out of tune.

    I've had cheapo guitars that don't go out of tune like this one. It's not worth (anywhere near) what I paid.
