Taylor Grand Auditorium vs Takamine NEX

Hey all. I'm mostly an electric player but am thinking about getting an acoustic.

I like the body size of the Taylor grand auditorium but even the 114 is a bit more than I want to spend at the moment.

I see Takamine has an NEX body style and was wondering how close it is in size to Taylor's GA?

Has anybody played both and can offer an opinion?

Thanks.

I am not familiar with the Takamine, but I own a 314ce which is a grand auditorium and I love it. I have a deep low end, and bright trebbles. I think you will not be dissapointed with any Taylor guitar. However the 100 and 200 series are not solid wood. But they still sound great. I know this didnt answer all of your questions but I thought I would give you some advice

For well under $1000 you could get a Blueridge or Eastman. I own three nice Taylors but play my Blueridge more. That's what I'd be looking at if I were you.
