Best guitar at a great price
AndreiMusic 21.01.2020
I have this guitar since 2017 and it's been a great purchase. Thomann was an outstanding experience for me, given the fact it was my first online purchase for a musical instrument.

Clarity: Very crisp sounding, and it's even better when plugged in

Pro: Solid top, Koa back, nice sound, cool look, Taylor quality
Cons: I wish the back was solid koa, one of the Tuners misses the rubber. maybe a fault in service but it can be fixed. These are not really cons but i had to write something

If you want to get in Taylor world at not so expensive price, I totally recommend this guitar.


Overall good, but not for jazz and fingerpicking
Vadim N. 19.10.2022
I play mostly jazz, accompaniment and some fingerpicking. So I wanted something mellow and convenient to play. The sound of this Taylor is not bad, and guitar feels not bad in hands, but it's just not for me, I think.
Let me explain some points, pros and cons...

- It has pretty straight neck, but I had to adjust strings height, and even in the lowest position it was too high for me
- Neck is extremely narrow, not for solo stuff and fingerpicking, except you have very small fingers maybe.
- Strings have standard gauge, I guess, but they seem too heavy for me, definitely not for fingerpicking or solo stuff.
- Quality of manufacturing is not good, but you never know in advance which pattern of koa and spruce you'll get. In my case, the top had strange texture.
- The guitar isn't loud enough, for solo stuff and fingerpicking at least.
- Plugged into my Boss Acoustic Singer it had some noise.

My final words - If you're looking for a decent quality guitar for simple loud strumming and singing, this may be a good option. If you (like myself) need something for soloing, blues, jazz, more advanced stuff, think twice, and better yet, try it before you buy.

Good luck!


An Excellent entry level Taylor
Anonymous 26.03.2017
1. The guitar came well packaged and in one piece.
2. The gig rig is actually really good, thick and well made. I was really impressed.
3. The Koa wood is really unique and makes the guitar look awesome.
4. The neck feels great, it's rather thin and the setup is lowish, although i might setup it lower soon.
5. Build quality is pretty good, even though this is a mexican guitar, i wasn't able to find any flaw. It's beautifully made.
6. The guitar stays in tune much better than my other guitars.
7. It sounds great! I was really impressed with the immense sound.
8. The pickups are ok, they sound just ok, You should use a microphone if you want to record it.

Overall, this is a great purchase, it looks, feels and plays just great.


Very good model
Miguel Almeida 06.03.2024
Beautiful Koa wood and finishes, it honours Taylor's reputation and sound. Of course you can feel the difference from a all-solid wood Taylor model especially lacking a bit of low ends. But a great model
