great guitar

selby, 03.02.2018
This guitar suits both finger style and stemming playing. its the best acoustic guitar I've owned. for an entry guitar its better than most top guitar brands I've played. sounds like a 1500 pound guitar.

Best guitar in relation quality-price

Lucas T, 05.12.2017
For those who know the Taylor house, they already know that they manufacture works of art of a very high quality. But they were always dedicated to professionals, having an adequate price to that sector. I had been waiting for a mid-range model for years, and finally it arrived. There are no words to describe this guitar. The attention to detail and the quality of construction are tremendous. The sound is a pleasure to hear. Although it has a smaller body, it has very strong acoustics. And also being able to connect it to a mixer is a bonus. It has a very good built-in amplifier, and sounds great amplified directly as well. It also comes with a Taylor case, and has a 12-year warranty, which says a lot about the quality of this guitar.

In my opinion, it is, without a doubt, the best guitar in value for money in this price range. A totally recommendable purchase.
