Which do you prefer & why?
That's not been my experience with Tylers, but I have no prejudices against modern appointments (and none against vintage either). I've found them to be consistently great feeling/playing and great sounding guitars. I've probably played about 15 of them, have owned at least 3 and still own one.It's amazing how different we see things. I have played or owned over 20 Tyler and over 20 Suhrs. Of the 20 Tylers I only liked one of them; it was extremely special (ssh/no mid-boost). 2-3 were good, and the rest were lifeless and sterile, and they all had some noticable flaws (relic do as well). 4-5 years ago I had about a dozen guitar friends out to the house. These guys brought all kind of guitars and amps, and one of them brought 5 Tylers. We were all reluctant to say that the Tylers did not sound as good as the other guitars that were brought, and the guy walked around all day wondering why noone wanted to play his presious Tylers($15,000 worth). So of the 20 ; 1 was special, 2-3 were good, and I found the rest to be mediocre at best. (Disclaimer: I generally migrate to vintage instruments, and the Tylers just seemed very modern to me)
