Perfect addition to the Les Paul collection

manfred.h, 10.01.2017
I was looking for a western guitar that has a scale that comes close to the Les Paul guitars, which I usually use / mainly use. The Taylor 312e came into the game. The technical data promised from the outset that it would actually fit. Thanks to the fast delivery by Thomann between the festivals, I could still check my assumptions on New Year's Eve 2016. The guitar is simply class! It lies in the fingers without it acting as a foreign body; The change between the instruments is now completely without problems, as was the case with various other Western guitars.

Even if the 312e is very handy and light, the sound and sound volume is very impressive; Possibly this is also a result of the Elixir strings, which are obviously co-developed by Taylor.

The only thing Taylor should improve is the somewhat unstable cable connection. Otherwise a clear purchase recommendation!

My Taylor is rich

Nicolas4647, 10.12.2016
For a long time, I wanted a Taylor. But what? After various research, I set my sights on this model. It is a model Great concert, close enough to the 000, except that the back is a little wider. This induces a rather sharp general sound. But what a sound! Difficult to describe, try !! Once connected, there again, nothing to say, the preamp does not distort the original sound.

Side finishes, we are in the high end. I have never heard anyone have a Taylor complaining about anything at this level. Sound, we like it or not, it is subjectivity. But the finish is something purely factual.

Last thing, if like me, the cutaway indifferent, choose this model, it still makes 300 euros less than his sister. Which is not nothing.

This brings us directly to the financial side. 1700 euros, it is certainly a certain sum, but in view of the qualities of the instrument, you get what you pay for
