I ordered this stock 526 from L.A. Guitars. It is an all mahogany body Grand Symphony. I can tell you it has a commanding, well balanced tone, firm lows, airy highs, and sweet high harmonics. It loves power chords. I love it! I was originally going to order a BTO, but decided to go with the 526. It saved me a lot of coin, and the tone, appearance, and of course the superb Taylor build quality and playability are all here. The build time wait was about 5 weeks. I can hardly put it down now.
