Pretty. Looks great! How does it sound though?
never heard it.
looks very cool and its made out of a special walnut.
Have you played a Taylor electric yet?
I have the Taylor Custom Electric. It's very nice with very usuable tones. My "go to" guitar, however, is still my '94 PRS CU24.
The Taylor you are viewing is limited to 50 pieces. The dealer's cost will be $4,000.00. Add on some profit for the dealer, and you're in the custom made stratosphere. Personally, I'd prefer a custom guitar built by Ron Thorn.
I think it's great.
I don't know what the deal is but I suddenly snapped this week. Now I want some guitar that not like everyone else's. I'm talking weird here like that one Lindsey Buckingham used or those odd-balls that Mike Campbell plays. Up until this point, it's been Fender Strat style only and I couldn't even look at anything else.
pretty guitar. The handful of Taylor electrics I've played were OK. Different tonally, but useable. Not my cup-o-tea, but I prefer vintage vibe instruments...
I like the case...
I agree w/Eugene. It looks too busy for me, but that's just my own personal feeling about it. Is that a faux 2TEK on there?
I`ve played a couple of the regular line ones. They sound very nice,not grazy about the neck shape or overall feel. Kind of like a very well made bolt on Gibson Melody Maker w/wy better electronics.
I'd like to know more about that neck joint. Anderson gets away with 2 bolts using their wedge joint, but this one-bolt Taylor does not instill confidence......
I tried a similar one--not as fancy--in Ossining (NY) Music. I liked the feel of it. Sounded good even played through no amp.
PUP didnt mean to sound negative about the review of the guitar. He (TRIODERBOB) was asking for opinions on the Taylor solidbody. Just trying to give a honest assesment ofthe instrument. Thanks.
Wood figuring is both passive...yet aggressive.
Looks nice, but I don't care for the fretboard inlay.
Not my cuppa...but I'd be willing to be that it's a fine instrument. Taylor makes good stuff IMO...so if it's even half as good as their acoustics, I'd give it a shot in a pinch.
Not something that interests me.
I've played the new Taylor electrics, very clear tonally. The neck felt great and it was just a really nice guitar all around.
