Mesmerising 12 String!
The Newcomer, 28.05.2019
i chose this guitar using Taylor's comparison tool on their website. It is a true guitar with great balance across the full range of low to mid to high tones. (The high tones are only slightly lost in the full strum). The strings tuned to a higher octave (i.e. The thinner strings) have amazing clarity compared to other 12 strings I have played. The neck's ideally slightly narrowed shape allows for easy finger placement across all frets. The cut away is absolutely perfect and you can play up to the chord G (above the E chord if you know what I mean). Top Tip: In order to protect the neck, Tune all strings down one full note to dD gG cC fF aA dD. This tuning completely suits my lower voice too!! Lastly, I only gave it 4 stars for quality as the Taylor inscription on the headstock was slightly faded and the protective cover on the pick guard had a small mark/bit missing from it which are only very small things to this beautiful guitar. Well worth it.

My first Taylor
Bianca Z., 28.12.2016
Actually, I wanted to buy a 12-string Takamine, which I had previously at a site visit. After the advice of Marco Heidenfelder I took various Taylor models in the hand and was immediately inspired by the sound and the good playability! To the pickup system ES-2 I have to get used to as an Ovation and Takamine guitarist only a little, but use the guitar mostly purely acoustically.
I particularly like the surfaces of the body and neck, both are matt and very pleasant to wear.
The guitar I have tuned down half a tone and use a 'Kyser Quick Change 12-String KG12B' that fits perfectly to the neck and does not leave any marks.
The neck and the strings are perfect for me. All other guitars I had to adjust and edit after the purchase. Unfortunately, Tayler does not have a guitar with a built-in tuner. Therefore, a star trigger with the features. Altogether, a great instrument, which anyone who is looking for a 12-string guitar should definitely try it out!
