As you can tell from my name, I'm relatively new to guitar. So pardon me if my question/comment is obvious. A frind just purchased an upper end guitar and I noticed that the frett wires are protruding from the frett board. After playing a while, his hand was getting SORE from scraping on the fretts. Shouldn't the frett wires be polished down to be flush with the edge of the frett board? I recommended he return it to the shop and have them correct the situation. Am I right? Keep It Fun, Dean
Dean, I wouldn't accept it either. I suspect that the cause might be attributable to environmental conditions at the store rather than a manufacturing defect. As to your playing ability, that has nothing to do with your deserving a Taylor. If you like the sound and the playability, you deserve it now. A better guitar sounds better, you play it more, you get better. Then the guitar sounds even better, you play more, and you can see where this leads.
Play lots of guitars. The right one will find you.
